I finished reading Nick and Norah’s Infinite Playlist by Rachel Cohn and David Levithan this morning. What a great read! It’s marketed towards the high school crowd, but after several references to the sitcom My So-Called Life, I knew this book is really for my generation.
The book is about the “five-minute” relationship between two strangers that turns into an unforgettable first date complete with great music, drunk loyal friends, ex-girlfriends from hell, and the possibility of new love.
I also finished Patti Digh’s Life is a Verb: 37 Days to wake up, be mindful, and live intentionallyy. It’s a great self-help book with tons of stories, exercises, examples and laughs to get you going. The inspiration for the book come from Digh’s father. Her father was diagnosed with lung cancer and died just thirty seven days later. This is not a book of sadness or grief, but one that celebrates life and the human potential fully. I cannot say enough about the book, but I can say this: go out and buy it now. Also go and check out Patti’s blog: http://37days.typepad.com/37days/
