1. It’s a great story set in 1960s Mississippi about the lines drawn between white women and their “colored” maids. I’ve been reading it since our trip to Miami and I’ve been hooked ever since. I read walking down the street, in elevators, on the subway — you name it! I savored the last 15 pages because I didn’t want it to be over.
2. I love Kathryn’s story – she was turned down 60 times before selling this book! I mean – at that point..some people would have said “enough.” But I’m so glad she didn’t. What a great lesson in perseverance.
I always have an on-going reading list. I’m lucky enough to work with a bunch of readers so we swap books often. I also have a Kindle and an iPad but I must say – it’s just not the same for me. I haven’t gotten used to not holding a book. Although—those electronic devices are much easier to carry on the subway!
Some of my favorite books include anything by Jodi Picoult, Philippa Gregory, Jennifer Weiner, Emily Giffin, Kristin Hannah or Dan Brown. I’m always open to suggestions but I think that having a list of books will help you remember everything you want to read. It will also serve as a goal-setting tool. I’m convinced that if you write it down…you will do it.
But back to my book list – here is my most recent one:
• The Four Agreements by Miguel Ruiz
• I Was Told There’d Be Cake by Sloane Crosley
• Devil in the White City by Erik Larson
• Sin in the Second City by Karen Abbott
• The Color Purple by Alice Walker
• Bossypants by Tina Fey
• Chelsea Chelsea Bang Bang by Chelsea Handler
• Columbine by Dave Cullen
• The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo by Stieg Larsson
• One Day by David Nicholls
