A few friends have asked for book recommendations after reading Erin Morgenstern's The Night Circus (if you haven't read it yet, drop everything and go read it. It's that good. Plan your weekend around it.)
The following books are currently in my reading/read pile:
Sophie's World by Jostein Gaarder (I picked this up years ago when I was working at a bookstore. I couldn't get in to it then, but I'm going to try again!)
Einstein's Dreams by Alan Lightman (the book that inspired Erin to write "The Night Circus". Read it. Loved it. Might not be for everyone.)
The Book of Qualities by J. Ruth Gendler (I am saving this one for last. It's full of short chapters and line drawings. If I love it, I will seek it out in hardcover.)
Little Kingdoms by Steven Millhauser (this just sounds fabulous. Can't wait to read it.)
Invisible Cities by Italo Calvino (I just started reading this one. My husband includes it in his list of favorite books.)
What are you reading?
