"...Herman slipped his hand into mine, and I thought, an average of seventy-four
species become extinct every day, which was one good reason but not the only
one to hold someone's hand," -Alma Singer, The History of Love
Reading is one of those things that I wish I did more often and find I do far too little. By some miracle (probably due to the fact that I read instead of doing school) I finished a book today. The History of Love by Nicole Krauss is absolutely beautiful. There are SO many good books out there that it's hard for me to tell you to stop what you're doing and go read this right now, but it definitely needs to be on your list...it is a beautifully told story and manages to somehow weave together the tales of three distinctly different characters whose lives manage to intertwine by the end. Just beautiful.
Now on to the next! Trying to decide between The Alchemist & By the River Piedra I Sat Down and Wept...
All that to say, go read a book...it feels good.
