What I’m reading and something fun

Twitterature with Modern Mrs. Darcy

 

Anne of Modern Mrs. Darcy hosts a monthly link up called Twitterature. The idea is to share short reviews of what you’re reading, similar in length to a tweet, although she’s not holding us to 140 characters!

My reading has slowed WAY down since summer ended. I’ve read so little that I don’t know if I even qualify to participate in Twitterature this time.

However, the book I’ve been slowly working through is almost 600 pages, and it’s a good one, so I didn’t want to miss my chance to share it.

After reading mixed reviews about the movie Jobs, I decided to get the most accurate and detailed version of the story by reading Walter Isaacson’s biography, Steve Jobs.

Isaacson does a masterful job, and the details of this almost mythic man’s life are compelling if a little disturbing at times. Jobs set things in motion that changed the world forever, and the details are both fascinating and frightening.

If the story of Jobs the man and Apple intrigue you at all, I recommend reading it.

Now for the something fun:

Some friends in California had the inspired idea to start a literary society a few years ago so they could talk with friends about what they were reading without the pressure and inevitable dread which accompanies traditional book clubs.

I’ve loved the idea since I heard about it, but it’s taken me until a couple months ago to organize something similar. I finally got on the ball, and I’m so glad because it has become one of my favorite social events.

My friends have a snazzy acronym for theirs, but we’re just calling ours the Non Book Club. Any ladies who are interested in reading and sharing what they read are invited to come and bring friends. There are snacks, wine, and great conversations. And I always walk away with a great To Read list. Now I just need to dive into that list!

  1. This book has been hanging out at the middle of my reading list for a while now. (600 pages? Yikes!)

    Love the new profile pic by the way!

  2. I think Steve Jobs was a fascinating man, and so, so brilliant. Yay for you for organizing your own Non Book Club. That sounds so fun!
