Last night, the full reality of The End of the Season for most of our favorite TV shows seemed to suddenly smack Leo in the face.
"What are we gonna watch now?" ::sad panda face::
"How about if we read instead?" I said. "I've got a ton of book suggestions I would love to get into!"
"You mean, just sit here and read? Sit here on the couch and read together?"
"Uh-huh. Just sit here and read. Like the good ol' days."
He didn't respond. Hm. He must not have as extensive of a list of books as I have staring him in the face!
Here are the suggestions I want to tackle, per friend recommendations:
- The Year of Living Biblically, by A.J. Jacobs (I read his "Know It All" book last year, and really liked it. Highly suggest.)
- Mind Over Mood - Changing How You Feel by Changing How You Think, by Dennis Greenberger & Christine A Padesky (Sometimes, a little self-help is necessary. And a nice change of pace.)
- Still Alice, by Lisa Genova (This is about a Harvard professor dealing with the early onset of Alzheimer's. Supposed to be a very good book.)
- The Book of Negroes, by Lawrence Hill (I think I might actually try to get my hands on this one before the others. Sounds fascinating. Sad, but fascinating!)
Any other suggestions are welcome! Please let me know what you've been reading...(Twin, I already forgot the one you mentioned, and I lost my search in Amazon. Remind me in the comments, dammit!)
