Hello from above the Atlantic Ocean! Guess what time it is in Prague?
Here’s what I’m reading on the plane, in order of preference:
I can’t wait to read The Romantics by Galt Niederhoffer. [I am intrigued by the story of college buddies reuniting for a wedding, plus I want to read the book before the movie comes out this fall.]
Noli me Tangere by Jose Rizal (translated by Soledad Locsin) [This was a pivotal book for my Mom when she lived in the Philippines. She suggested the family read it since my middle sister is going to live in the Philippines for two months.]
The Butcher and the Vegetarian: One Woman’s Romp Through a World of Men, Meat, and Moral Crisis by Tara Austen Weaver [This was suggested to me after reading, Cleaving, by Julie Powell. I loved Julie & Julia but I do NOT recommend reading her sophomore effort. I was disturbed by reading about her infidelities.]
The Spirit Catches You and You Fall Down by Anne Fadiman [A coworker recommended this book.]
The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time by Mark Haddon [I love the cover of this book and apparently it has received rave reviews.]
Any other suggestions?
