I rarely read anything more plotful than the Crate and Barrel catalog anymore.
I mean in print. I read a number of blogs. But those are not airplanishly portable.
Yes. I'm going on an airplane. On Saturday. All by myself. But more on that in a moment.
So, with the reading. It tends to be pointless to start a book when I know that the inbetweens will be so long I'll have to start it over to refresh my memory. And my New Yorker subscription went the way of the mornings where you roll out of bed just in time to put on a cute dress and makeup for brunch.
I did, however, just finish I Was Told There'd Be Cake by Sloane Crosley. I really enjoyed it. My high school friend Nicole introduced me to her writing, and her stories are short and fun, in manageable babynap or metro ride sized chunks.
Actually, Nicole suggested her new book, but when I went to buy it, the store didn't have it, so I bought that one instead. And the new one is hardback, which I am not buying for travel.
And here is what I'm leading up to: Have you read anything light and easy and fun lately? Something that would be perfect for a plan ride and/or an evening or two? I would love some suggestions.
Because here is the thing. I am flying to LA for work. I would mention the fact that I'm going to sleep all by myself in a hotel room for four nights all by myself but that might sound like I'm gloating all by myself, so I'll just keep that to myself. All by myself.
And by that of course I mean that I'm going to miss my husband and my baby terribly. All by myself.
I'm even going to see California Jane while I'm there. Ohhh, fun!
I mean, in a missing my family terribly every moment kind of way.
So, I could buy magazines for the plane, but it's so much more fun (and so much easier to keep your mind off certain or even just likely death) if you can get lost in a delicious book.
The Twilights would be perfect. But alas, I've read them.
It needs to be paperback, and easy to dive into. Also, nothing that will make me cry. I hate crying in public.
Anything you've loved lately?
