As I suspected in last week’s post, I didn’t finish reading any books this week. I did, however, manage to post my thoughts on Committed by Elizabeth Gilbert.
There are only about 40 pages left in Weird Sisters by Eleanor Brown. I’ve enjoyed the odd point-of-view (once I got used to it) and the peppered Shakespeare quotes. I’m a little less sure about the plot and characters, but I’ll wait until I’m finished to decide.
Zingerman’s Guide to Good Eating by Ari Weinzweig is fun to read straight through, but I think I want to own a copy for future reference (maybe an electronic copy would work well for that purpose). This week, surely, I’ll have it finished in time for Weekend Cooking.
After giving up on Influencer by Kerry Patterson, Joseph Grenny, David Maxfield, Ron McMillan and Al Switzler because the library wanted it back, I requested Change Anything, the new book by the same authors. I like Change Anything even better because it’s more about personal change and less about institutional change, even though it’s all based on the same underlying principles. My hope, now that I’ve lost most of the weight that I want to lose, is to find ways to apply what I’ve learned about myself through weight loss and apply it to other changes in my life. This book looks like a powerful tool in that quest.
What’s next? I have so many books I want to read right now. The next food related book will probably be a book about making panini sandwiches. I have a stack of Twitter books that I want to look through. And then, there’s all of my fiction!
I’m stuck on your last comment: “a stack of Twitter books?” What is this? I can think of a couple possibilities but I’ll come back and read your answer.
Books about the online social media site, Twitter:
Interesting, I didn’t know there was such a thing as “twitter books” but then I don’t twitter so that may explain it.
I’ll be interested to hear what you think of The Weird Sisters. I really liked it but it did have an odd voice.
I sure hope you enjoyed The Weird Sisters because I plan to read it soon.
