I am having a difficult time focusing on reading one book at a time on my Kindle. Depending on my mood, I’ve been selecting one book over another each night I settle into bed for my nightly reading. Last night, I was in the mood for something light, as I was tired from editing my print book earlier in the day, so I read a bit of Rob Lowe’s autobiography Stories I Only Tell My Friends. It’s a real page-turner. He is a very entertaining and engaging writer and actually wrote the book himself—without a ghost writer. I recommend it to anyone from the Gen X demographic. Another well-written book I’m nursing is Russell Brand’s My Booky Wook. I’m really surprised by how intelligent and articulate he is. I’m about fifty pages into this one. A third book I’m reading is The Psychopath Test by Jon Ronson. Anything to do with psychopaths is of interest to me. The book is a little bit of old news for the well educated in this area. But I’m enjoying it nonetheless.
I’m making a list of the books I'm juggling. My goal is to finish them before starting a new one(s).
I’ll cross off each book after I finish it.
