The Book Shelf: Soulmates.

Today's school prompt reaches my heart. Read it here at TravelinOma.

I am currently reading Other People's Weddings by Noah Hawley. As with many of my books, I've had this one quite some time but never picked it up off the shelf. In search of a light read I scooped it up just about a week ago and have been picking away at it since. It's not at all what I expected. Then again, my expectations were formed purely by the cover art and title. I didn't bother reading the back. It wouldn't have mattered. I felt the need to read it however good or not it would be. I'm enjoying it. It's fun. It's real. It's written by a male author with a female main character. That alone interests me.

What's on your night side table?


  1. I'm always interested in a man writing from a woman's perspective and vice-versa. I couldn't do it. Men think SO differently. I could probably write it from the perspective I THINK men should have, but couldn't we all??

  2. i just finished 'the things they carried' - INCREDIBLE read! and i'm working on 'mountains beyond mountains' right now - it's wonderful too =)
