I hadn't been reading much (at all) until a couple weeks ago. Once I finally picked this book up, it went very quickly. The story was entertaining and the commentary on current affairs compared to a past generation's was well done.

Okay, not great. I never really got into it, but had a bunch of time to read this week being sick.

This has always been one of my favorites. We were debating boys' names and Odysseus was a front-runner, so I wanted to go back and re-read the story of his journey home. Of course, we ended up having a beautiful baby girl and didn't use the name. (And, as a parent of two, I've had trouble finding any time to read, so it took me forever to finish this one.)

Lots of good advice in here. A helpful guide before the big day. I'm glad Erica suggested that I read it.

The only thing more boring than waiting in line? Reading about waiting in line. I found this book on the free table at work and it seemed so unusual that I figured I'd give it a try. While the other did a good job exploring a dull subject, it wasn't enough to make up for the dullness of the subject.
