Book Snob

Last March there was an NY Times article about how people judge other people based on their choice of reading material. I'm totally one of those people. Any time I see somebody with a Harry Potter book or--better yet--some classic YA choice, I want to befriend them or even snuggle up to them while they read on the train. You have The Da Vinci Code listed first on your favorite books list on facebook, and I think you're kind of a tool.

But now one of my classes requires me to read Eat, Pray, Love, a big NY Times Bestseller. And the best time to get some reading in is during the commute to work.

I'm such a tool for feeling like a tool by carrying this around.

Book review to come later?

I actually just finished listening to Eat, Pray, Love on tape. Despite its wild popularity, I quite liked it. I especially liked it because the author read it on tape and I listened to her every morning and evening as I went to and from work (a total of about 1.5 hours/day). After a while it started to feel like she was reading directly to me, and I imagined she was my BFF. I think I might hug Elizabeth Gilbert if I ever saw her, lol. But really, it was a pleasant read. Not like my fave of all time, but very pleasant. :)
