I was excited to read Project President: Bad Hair and Botox on the Road to the White House by Ben Shapiro. I thought it would be chock-full of Presidental Goodness.
I’m about halfway through and I just don’t care to read on. At all. I re-posted it over at PaperbackSwap and some other lucky reader will get it next. I haven’t been reading AT ALL LATELY, so my book-dar might be off but this one would have been better as an article in the New Yorker. Just my opinion though, it has pretty great reader reviews on Amazon.
Last year I did “The Artist’s Way” and I was soooo glad I did.
This past week, I just found out that the book “The Right to Write” was available to me at PaperbackSwap, so any day now, any day. I know Erin is working her way through this book right now too.
Something that strikes me most about the first chapter of Finding Water is one of the quotes, one by Abraham Maslow: “A musician must make music, an artist must paint, a poet must write, if he is to be at peace with himself. What a man can be, he must be.
If you haven’t read any of her work, I highly recommend it. Pure inspiration.
Have I mentioned I love this season? A precursor to my most favourite time of year! I plan on doing a whole lot of nothing this weekend…just seasonal simplicity.
Task #1- Read the two New Yorker magazines I have waiting for me. I hate being behind!
Task #2- Pull out the Fall and Winter Clothing Box and the FALL DECORATIONS! Yay!
Task #3- I have a bit of a baking itch, I think I will scratch tonight. Done! Check it out here.
OH.MY.GOD. This is the best Clam Chowder I have ever had. My house smells amazing.
Task #5- Entertain Mark’s friend Randy and his wife who are coming in town. And maybe his friend Paul too, but I think Mark and Paul are headed to a movie this evening sans Jenny.
An unexpected add Task #5.5- GET CREPES FROM AMBROSIA. Yum! All a part of entertaining Mark’s friends you see.
Task #6- Read. I am in the middle of a few books right now. The World is Flat, The Bostonians, The Awakening, Life in the Time of Cholera.
Update- Damn! I got two new books in the mail! John sent me a book he highly recommended, My Other Loneliness: Letters of Thomas Wolfe and Aline Bernstein (this man knows my tastes, he introduced me to my favourite Jeanette Winterson) and I got one from PaperbackSwap.com- How to be Alone by Jonathan Franzen. Hmmm. Interesting theme I seem to be following here!
Task #7- DRINK BEER at OKTOBERFEST (which happens to be our next blogger meetup!) Hurrah! Check out the cool signs the Punaro’s created for the event! Anyone else dressing up?
Task #9- Take a walk…come back to warm spiced apple cider.
Task #10- Cuddle with Mark. An ongoing weekend adventure. As always :)
Ah, yes a good weekend indeed!
