In need of more good reading
So I am a big fan of reading, and believe it or not, I manage to find time to read (usually while in the bath, a slow night at work or cutting into sleep time). I've been a big reader as far back as I can remember. Back in 5th grade, they did a short little blurb about me in the small town paper because I had read so many books during the school year. Rare is it that I find a book I don't like. Even if there are aspects I don't like about a book, I usually end up finding something I like about it. Just like the book review I did of "Your Best Birth". While I don't agree with every aspect of the book, I still found it to be an enjoyable read for the most part. One book in particular, called "Geek Love", was one of those books that was way, way beyond my idea of a good topic to read about, but I'm still glad I read the thing. It's no longer in print, but if you are looking for a most disturbing tale of circus freaks, this is your book. Most people would find this book disturbing. I won't get into the topic too much, but look it up if you're curious. I have a hard time not liking a book, but I'll admit this book took me longer to read than any other book. One of the OB's I work with recommended it, no less. Very disturbing, but oddly fascinating. Anyway, my usual supplier of good books is trying to finish the "Twilight" series and hasn't provided me with any new books to read. Dangnabit! Ha Ha! So, if anyone has read any good books, no matter the topic, let me know. I've been re-reading all the "Chicken Soup for the Soul" books I have, and I've read several midwifery books lately. One thing I treat myself to is a bath most nights of the week, and in order for it to be a "successful" bath, I have to have a book of some kind to read, and a glass of wine. Yeah, yeah, judge me if you want. I need time to myself, even if it's 30 minutes, and enjoying a glass (or 2) of wine is good for my sanity. So, let me know what you're reading these days.
