I’m having a wonderful holiday weekend. It began with an exciting game of mini golf followed by a splendid day touring around Brooklyn and then a bbq with friends. I love a nice three-day weekend. 🙂 I hope you all had a wonderful, relaxing weekend as well.
Here’s what I’ve been reading:
Kara Goucher’s Running for Women by Kara Goucher – Filled with anecdotes, tips, and training schedules, I’m greatly enjoying the insights that Goucher offers to her readers. She’s an inspirational runner who seems to throw her heart and soul into her training and it pays off. I’ve followed her ups and downs through the many articles that have been written about her in Runner’s World. Her passion for running and girl-next-door spirit has made her an inspiration to runners, especially women, everywhere.
It Gets Better edited by Dan Savage and Terry Miller – Partners Savage and Miller took the initiative to post a YouTube video of themselves telling gay youth that “it gets better.” Their response to the recent spate of homophobic bullying and teens subsequently committing suicide set off a firestorm of similar posts by people everywhere recording their personal experiences as well. This noble effort to try and give kids hope while making more people aware of the bullying that has become an every day occurrence for some kids has since been edited into this insightful book.
Tentacles by Roland Smith – I really enjoy Smith’s writing style and eagerly jumped into this second book in his Cryptid Hunters series. His characters are smart and uniquely gifted and just happen to seek out animals largely thought to be fictitious, i.e. cryptids. A fun romp through exciting locales, Smith’s readers are treated with admirable heroes, dangerous foes, and deadly monsters. 🙂
