The first book of 2009, written by Jhumpa Lahiri, Unaccustomed Earth. I found this collection of short stories moving, painful, relevant, and timely.
The second book of 2009 hit the stores in 2006 and I'm just getting around to reading it. Omnivores Dilemma and for some reason, not sure which, I avoided this book. Now, I'm ready to read it.
I hope that anyone reading this blog, will read the books along with me. There's usually a lunch involved and wine - just a moment or two devoted to discussion of the actual book - and a good time.
As I said recently about my son, I say about myself, "The nerd is strong in this one."
PS - Happy Birthday Matt. Continuing to pave the 30 something way for me....
