I took a trip to the library today and took out a few books. I was in a non-fiction, self-improvement mood, but I didn't want to be too ambitious either, so my selections may seem a little incongruous:
The Origin of Species is on my "Reading to Continue Learning" list, and I hope to continue through more recent research, but I wanted to start with the basics.
Jonathan Safran Foer is one of my favorite authors, so I was bitterly disappointed when I learned that his new book was non-fiction. I've already read Fast Food Nation, so I figured this would be redundant, but I was thumbing through in the library and it captured my interest.
Gay Gavriel Kay is another one of my favorite authors, and I thought I deserved a nice fictional break after the more didactic tomes above!
I restricted myself to just three, so hopefully I'll read these quickly and let you know what I think. Happy Memorial Day weekend!
