I Stand Corrected

I said something about being excited for the new Ann Patchett book on Monday night when I was hanging out with some friends and they said, "Oh! She has a new book already?" to which I replied, "What do you mean already?"

I guess Run came out *last July* not this July. I still want to read it, so it can stay on my To Do List (see my post last week), but I felt I needed to correct myself nonetheless.

On a side note, I started The Myth of You and Me by Leah Stewart this week. So far so good. What book are you currently reading? Is it good?

I'm reading "Merde Happens," by Stephen Clarke. It's the third in his series about Paul West, the fellow from London who opens up a tea shop in Paris.

It's fluffy reading, really, but very funny and I enjoy the male perspective every now and again.

Jill, did you read "A Year in the Merde" and "In the Merde for Love?" You might enjoy. : )

My boss just loaned me a book called "Same Kind of Different As Me", a true story about a "modern day slave" who becomes friends with a wealthy art dealer.

I'm also reading "Buddha Is As Buddha Does: The Ten Original Practices For Enlightened Living" and "Race & Ethnic Relations, 2nd Custom Edition for Western Washington University", but that one probably doesn't count.
