Friday Book Club! (A little late in the evening, I know. RWA consumes all time.) What are you reading? I actually picked up Elaine’s recommendation of It Ain’t Over…Till It’s Over to read on the plane trip here, and at about 3/4 way through am finding it utterly fascinating and also inspiring. From an author’s point of view, it’s just fascinating to see all the careers these women choose (who knew some of these things could be a career?) and how they go about it, but also it’s just quite motivating and meaningful to see the ways these women take their lives into their hands and re-invent themselves. (One woman became a film actress at the age of 65 for example. Another an aerial dancer at the age of 42. Also plenty of stories of opening a business, etc.)
I’m also, of course, getting intrigued by some of the books I hear about here, particularly Carolyn Crane’s Into the Shadows. (When I ran into Carolyn at the conference, the first thing I said was, “I have been hearing TONS about this latest book, from all kinds of people.” And then she ended up going out to dinner with some of us, at which she showed herself to be a very smart and interesting woman, to boot. So now I’m doubly intrigued.)
What about you? What are you reading? Anything you recommend? Anything you’re looking forward to for this weekend?
