I stayed up late last night to finish Heidi Julavits' The Folded Clock. It was a good read. I laughed several times and often read passages out loud to David. I'm going to look for more of her books in my travels.
I'm trying to see if I can read a book a week in the new year. When I was younger, I would devour six to twelve books in a week. I would leave the library with an armload of books. I miss those days. Growing up, I'd read anything I could get my hands on. I'd have the newspaper or a magazine propped up in front of me any time I ate or even as I did the dishes. Now we're all glued to our phones and I hate that.
I'd like to read more artist biographies this year. I've been flipping through several Van Gogh, Frida Kahlo and various surrealist books the past few months. Any recommendations?
