Reading myself to sleep with:
- Sophie Kinsella’s newest British escapade with Becky Brandon (this is the seventh) – Shopaholic to the Stars
- The latest installment of the Maggie Hope mystery series by Susan Elia MacNeal – The Prime Minister’s Secret Agent
And when I feel serious, I thumb through Atul Gawande’s Being Mortal, as sobering as promised in his interview with Jon Stewart on the Daily Show – a book about the inevitability of death. Despite modern medicine, we all die. Just as Stewart balanced the interview with humor, I counter the heaviness by alternating with the escapades and adventures of Becky and Maggie.
I added Being Mortal to my reading list after seeing the Jon Stewart interview, too. Are you finding the book readable/accessible?
Very readable and good information – a book to keep as a reference and reminder.
Excellent. I’ll bump it up my never-ending reading list.
