Rat Girl

I finished JF's book, Freedom. My friend Audra and I have been talking about it back and forth throughout the read. there is a lot to think about the different ideas of freedom embedded throughout the text. All in all felt quite satisfied by the read and am sure will continue to think about it.

Of course because of the new iPad addition to my life, I had my next book lined up immediately for this weekend- Rat Girl- a memoir of a rock star. Last month I went to the Happy Ending Reading Series (which you know ends up impacting my reading life tremendously. The excerpts read really drew me in and sounded amazing. I guess I will probably have to buy her music after I read her book.

Hope you are enjoying this weekend- feel free to comment or to leave us good book suggestions to read!!!!

Freedom Baby

As you know from facebook, I started Freedom on Labor Day Weekend- but I didn't get very far. Now I have given myself the task to read --- all things related to Franzen and must finish it by this weekend- 100 pages a day should get me there!

This is a great article just in the NYTimes about the book. I think it will help me through this great novel.

And it is great. Loving it--- even though I am fifth of the way through it!
