I saw some sad statistics about the state of American reading habits over at Beso Mami's blog the other day.
Beso Mami has resolved to read more and encourages others to do the same. And in fact this was one of my resolutions this New Year, as I noted to my chagrin that my one-book-a-week reading habit had fallen off dramatically over the past couple of years. There are so many great books out there, I thought, that depriving myself of the pleasure of reading them is actually a kind of passive-aggressive way to be mean to myself.
So -- currently residing on my night table are Barbara Kingsolver's Animal, Vegetable, Miracle and Bill Clinton's Giving. So I'm not on the cutting edge of the New York Times Review of Books, but I'm trying. And I'll tell you what I think about the books I'm reading.
What's on your reading list these days?
