Oh Hey, Books!

I've been cranking along on the #50in14 challenge. It hasn't been easy--I've hated some books and had to throw in some "gimmes" (short books) to still hit my total. So here's the latest:

Tell the Wolves I'm Home, Carol Rifka Brunt: This book wasn't at all what I thought it would be, but I still enjoyed it somewhat.

I Don't Know Where You Know Me From, by Judy Geer: I love Judy Greer (actress from supporting roles in lots of movies, the point of the book). However, her memoir is a snooze. There's nothing very remarkable about her life, and the book was quite a slog.

Garlic and Sapphires, Ruth Reichl: Another memoir, but I found this one fascinating. Reichl writes about her time as the dining critic of the New York Times. I loved reading about restaurants that are now famous when they first opened, how seriously she took her job, and New York in the eighties and nineties.

Love in Mid-Air, Kim Wright: Just remember that I didn't like it. The end.

Happy Fall, F**kers

I've almost been too busy soaking up the beginning of fall to really write about it (and also on Day 19 of another Whole30, did I forget to mention that too?).

But I had to share this. Salty language abounds, so if you're at work (and four-letter words aren't common in your workplace, they are in mine), mayhaps read at home:
