Nothing is better than time spent with a book. I mean any book because I read anything and everything from biography, to fiction, to history, to those books that focus on current events or politics. Relaxing with a story that has much greater depth and detail than anything that can be shown on television or in a movie is my favorite way to spend my time.
I just finished reading American Wife which I guess is a biography of Laura Bush with a veil of fiction thrown over it. I came to see Alice/Laura in a more sympathetic way but I am still not fond of Charlie/George or men like him.
Current reading is Water for Elephants and in a strange way it reminds me of A River Runs Through It because the story is told by an elderly man looking back. I have not read much more than the first chapter yet so I will let you know more about this book later.
Are you like me and use a good story to get away for a little while? What are you reading lately?
