Oh, that’s right. I read another book. One down for 2007.
Per a recommendation by The Cuz, I ordered The Idiot Girls’ Action-Adventure Club: True Tales from a Magnificent and Clumsy Life from Amazon. I don’t even remember when it came in the mail, but I hadn’t opened it until recently. I started reading it less than three days ago and now I’m done. And now I want to read more from her right now.Â
I only read when on the crapper, so my books stay stacked on my bathroom sink. But I liked this one so m much I found myself standing in the bathroom for no reason reading a chapter or two.
The chapters were short and that automatically made me a fan. But not only were the chapters short, they were also funny and so easy for me to relate to that it was almost embarrassing. Especially when I was relating most to stories of people being passed out in a stranger’s front yard.
I made some New Year’s resolutions. #7 on the list is read two books a month. I don’t even remember the last time I’ve read over 10 books in a year, let alone 24. I have a couple more here I need to finish up, but I want to ask for recommendations from you. You guys read, right?
David Sedaris, Augusten Burroughs, Judy Blume – these are the authors I love. In 2006, I already read books about strippers living in Minneapolis, a really badly misbehaved large dog, and dog trainers from Mexico, all of which I very much enjoyed. Short chapters, not a lot of thought, and some how related to me – those are the books I loved the most.
What’s a book you love that maybe I would love, keeping in mind the above information as well as my constant struggles in reading?
