book club

Have you read any good books lately? 

I just finished The Goldfinch. It was smart, fascinating and dare I say destined to be a classic? The only caveat is that it's fairly long….there were a few passages that the editor in me would have cut, BUT that's why I write a blog and not great American novels. (If you're interested you can see the painting that inspired the story here). 

For a change of pace I downloaded B.J. Novak's One More Thing. I adored Mindy Kaling's Is Everyone Hanging Out Without Me? and I'm hoping for similarly great things from her fellow Office alum. 

I'm also dying to check out Heart of the Artichoke and Other Kitchen Adventures. The cover alone has me wanting to channel my inner Julia Child.

I would love to hear what you're reading.
