On my nightstand
Your Money or Your Life by Joe Dominguez and Vicki Robin — I’m rereading this as part of The Money Diet and inspiration for how I want to life my life. It is actually a library book I own, bought at a library sale.
Accidentally on Purpose by Mary Pols — My friend Mary wrote this. I loaned out my copy and haven’t got it back, so I have this one from the library to re-read for my bookclub this month. We chose her book this month because it is the basis for a new series (Accidentally on Purpose) starring Jenna Elfman. It is on Monday nights after How I Met Your Mother. Mary was by far the best writer at the newspaper where I used to work. I still think she is an awesome writer and inspiration. (Hers is the blurry light blue book)
The Mandarins by Simone de Beauvoir — I have renewed this to the limit. I’m not sure why it is taking me so long to read. I love it. I keep thinking, how the heck did I go 41 years without reading this woman? (It is the blurry red book!)
When Will There Be Good News by Kate Atkinson and the chess books — no movement here yet!
