Reading Updates

So, I finished Revenge Wears Prada. My assertion that it doesn't measure up to the original stands, but also that it was interesting to peer further down the lane of the characters' lives. There was one brilliant bit of plot that I didn't quite see coming, and another that was obvious, but still satisfying. The focus on weddings, since Andy and Emily run a luxe wedding magazine, was obviously interesting to me right now, as I plan my own!

I haven't been keeping up as well with The Economist or with The Case for G-d. I did this last time I read Karen Armstrong, where I got kind of slogged in the middle--even though it's fascinating, it requires a lot of in-depth thinking as you read along. I'm more than halfway through though, just need to keep going. For The Economist, I'm letting myself skip a couple of issues and start fresh. I'm still keeping up better than the last time I had a weekly magazine when piles of The New Yorker buried my closet floor.

Next up on the reading list will hopefully include the next two Magicians books, depending on the library selection, and I'm interested in reading Get Your Sh*t Together by Sarah Knight and The Five Dysfunctions of a Team by Patrick Lencioni.
