reading material.

I started Bridge of Sighs by Richard Russo a couple weeks ago and just finished it this afternoon.

It's an incredibly intricate story, the characters blending together in interesting ways.  I won't give away the ending, but the tension that seemed to be building up slowly throughout the whole story seemed to creep out just as quietly in the last pages.

In the wonderful surprise package that came my way a couple days ago, was My Life in France, the memoir written by Julia Childs chronicling her adventure in la France.  Seems an appropriate time to read it!

I'm always one for book recommendations.  What have you been reading lately?

Oh! After seeing Julie and Julia, I've been really wanting to read that book. I'm still working through the Harry Potter books, for the first time!

I have a bunch I could lend to you, but if you like art history or historical fiction, I have a great one about Florence in the Renaissance called "The Birth of Venus" if you'd like to borrow it!

Along the Julia Child line, I read Julie and Julia and laughed and laughed. I'll bring it for Christmas for you :)

food for thought.
