time to revive the book board! and i know there are other bibliophiles among us.
On My Own: The Art of Being a Woman Alone www.amazon.com/My-Own-Being-Woman-Alone/dp/1400098114/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&s=books&qid=1212590017&sr=1-1 for many women living completely on one's own is uncomfortable and even a little scary, especially after being part of a couple for many years. this book isn't just about how to manage being on one's own, but in fact, how to celebrate it. ok, so it's a little touchy-feely for me, but i appreciate the concept very much, as well as the many literary references throughout it.
Um, interesting read...although I have quite the reading assignments lately....
It is a wonder I can keep any of them straight!
I will add to this list once my jewish program is over when i have recovered what is left of my brain...
WILL - the autobiography of G. Gordon Liddy. -Quite a fascinating read. G. Gordon Liddy's autobiography is as spookily fascinating now as it was in 1980, especially the memorably unvarnished depiction of his early years. The army, the F.B.I., the Watergate scandal, and jail are covered with equal pungency: you have to admire the author's ferocious candor, whatever you think of his values. --- thanks for the hook up Goods...I have enjoyed it.
Three-Wheeling through Africa - James C. Wilson - rereading it due to looking at the History of Africa and going through notes.
Every Man Sees You Naked (thanks jules)...
Conversations With Woody Allen - his films, the movies, moviemaking... by Eric Lax.
1001 Buildings you must see before you die.
Lost in Translation by Eva Hoffman 2nd in series for Jewish Literature series...
I ordered this from Amazon but it hasn't arrived yet....also ordered another one that a friend told me was hilarious called "God is a Woman...Dating Disasters" which is supposedly a good read about getting back into dating....but lots of laughs too. I will let you know what I think after I read them.
I have several other books on the go right now...thanks RO
