Current Books: I just finished reading You Were Always Mom's Favorite by Deborah Tannen. Good book. Tannen writes about sisters and how their language reflects their relationship. I enjoyed it. Now I am reading Best Friends Forever by Jennifer Wiener. It reminds me a little of Summer Sisters by Judy Blume. Amanda suggested it and then Leila gave me her copy. Sarah Vance lent me Just Listen by Sarah Dessen, so I will read that soon. And I just got the space trilogy (C S Lewis) in the mail from Mandy and The Singer by Calvin Miller from Bookmooch. During my writing sessions, I am reading Wild Mind by Natalie Goldberg.
Current Playlist: I am on a Derek Webb kick, craving his new album. I want to download it from http://www.derekwebb.com/ so that I can get the uncensored version. Also, I just burned some Jamie Randolf and the Darkhorse onto a CD for the van. Jeff sent me some of their stuff and I like them. Especially "Pirate Girl."
