I'm disappointed in myself that I did not read one single book in the 4 months that I was going to school and between jobs. I read one blog post a few months ago that said if you have a tough time carving out time to read, make a goal to read just 5 pages per day. Wow, that was an eye opener for me. A very reasonable goal and I am really trying to stick to that.
I started small this week, with Someone Will Be With You Shortly by Lisa Kogan. She writes for, or has written for, Oprah's magazine. It's a short book so I know I will finish it before I go back to work -- setting myself up for a small success LOL. This book is just OK, in my opinion. I think she is trying to model her style after Nora Ephron (e.g., I Feel Bad About My Neck) -- Ephron had me literally laughing out loud when I read, but I am not getting that from Kogan's book. It's not a bad book, but I wouldn't rush out to buy it if you can get it at the 'brary or from a friend.
