In the last week or so I have read two books:
- Leaving the Saints: How I Lost the Mormons and Found My Faith
by Martha Beck
- Why Do I Love These People?: Honest and Amazing Stories of Real Families
by Po Bronson
I have not started to read The Good Life by Jay McInerney — the only thing I should be reading. My bookclub meets soon but I just can’t seem to open it.
I just have a few more magazines to get through before I can begin. I think I need to mentally prepare myself for fiction. Before the bookclub (which I enjoy immensely), I hardly read any fiction … which is strange perhaps as I’m a big reader. Jokingly I might say truth is stranger and far more interesting but non-fiction isn’t truth … and sometimes fiction is.
I will get started this weekend — Right after Metropolitan Home but before Utne.
