Library Loot: Brain Candy Edition
After a week of being up to my neck in environmental law and county ordinances (ah, journalism!), I took an evening and visited my local library for a pick-me-up.
I needed something engaging, but not something I felt like I’d have to work to understand. Turns out even former literature students like myself just get sick and tired of reading “smart” books. After much wandering of the aisles and about an hour spent curled up in front of an insanely comfy chair by a sunny window, here’s what I ended up with:
Sharp Teeth by Toby Barlow. I’ve read this before, but figured it was time to read it again — perfect for my state of mind, as it’s a fairly fast read, but not at all fluffy.
Elements of Style by Wendy Wasserstein. No idea what this is about, except I was looking for something like Candace Bushnell but not as grating. As the title seems to be a nod to Strunk and White, I have high hopes for this one.
The Man of my Dreams by Curtis Sittenfeld. I loved Prep when I read it ages ago, and though I debated picking up American Wife, this one really seemed more up my alley for the moment.
So, tell me…what did you pick up at the library this week? Or, what are your favorite things to read when you are nearly brain-dead? Tell me all about it below!
