I’ve strayed from my “well read” aspect of this blog lately and wanted to take a moment to explain myself. Yes, I’ve been particularly busy with wedding things lately, but Brandon also recently introduced me to the world of podcasts, so I find myself putting my hour and a half commute each day to good use listening to the likes of Ira Glass and Seth Godin. Expanding the cranium and all.
This morning I finished a particularly interesting episode of This American Life called How I Got into College. If you love storytelling, or underdogs, or just need something to break the monotony of everyday life for the moment, listen to this episode. It not only made me think, but it made me experience a smattering of emotions from laughter to sadness to introspective all in that short time frame.
This is my substitute book suggestion for you this week. And I think we’ll need to transition from book and a swimsuit to book and a sweater.
