It’s getting harder and harder to keep up with all the memoirs on my list, and all those that are being recommended to me. Can I just take some time off? Please?
I downloaded a list of “Must Read Memoirs of 2012 – So Far!” from the Book Page’s blog The Book Case, where they claim you can “Discover Your Next Great Book”. Seems to me I might discover my next great career… professional book reader. Since I read a lot of memoirs, I was happy, yet surprised, that I had only read ONE on the list: The Other Side of Suffering, which I talked about a few Fridays ago. I won’t list them all, but here are some I am adding to my pipeline: Yes, Chef by Marcus Samuelson (anyone other than me want to secretly be the Next Food Network Star? Between that and my new career as professional book reader, I’m not sure I’ll have much more time to blog…)…. add that to:
Burn Down the Ground by Kambri Crews; The Great Northern Express by Howard Frank Mosher; Some Assembly Required: A Journal of My Son’s First Son by Ann Lamott; and Lots of Candles, Plenty of Cake by Anna Quindlen.
Some day I’ll tell you about the memoir I’m writing about one of my family members… it relates to cake.
And, because it’s Barnes and Noble Free Friday Download for the Nook, here’s the one available for today:
