Reading the Printed Word
Yes, I've been blogging less frequently (Baby B. turns 3 months this coming Monday so things have been a little busy around here...) There's a part of me which misses logging in here and sending out my little thoughts to you. I also miss browsing around and catching up with my favorite blog-land friends... But there's also a part of me which is grateful to have this enforced break. A few weeks ago I read this essay in the SF Chronicle Book Review in which author Yiyun Li discusses spending less time on the web and more time reading books. This essay absolutely resonated with me.
What do you think? After reading the essay will you be reading fewer blogs and more books? I've been reading Ape House by Sara Gruen (she also wrote Water for Elephants.) In conjunction with Ape House, I'm reading Bonobo Handshake by Vanessa Woods and next up on my list is Day After Night by Anita Diamant (she's well known for writing The Red Tent.)
Are you reading any good books right now?
