I reread Brave New World this past year and it was so interesting to read it as an adult rather than a high school reading assignment.

Reading Miracle Birth Stores of very Premature Babies b/c I was one, and b/c a friend just had a baby born 3 months early and she was 1.15 pounds and is now thriving. I love preemies and find them strong little fighters.

Also just started The People of Forever Are Not Afraid, by Shani Boianjiu, about two school friends in Israel, a juxtaposition of being a teen with all the normal angst, and being a teen in Israel, with the fighting, armies, PLO, IAF, RPG Children and so on, the lessons they have to learn in school, and the life lessons of teenage girls/frienships/plans, etc. Since I just started it and am not far into it yet, I'm not sure how much is contrived (it's a work of fiction, after all) and how much is supposed, but I'll give it a shot.

Question: how far into a book are you willing to go before you decide, eh, this one isn't worth my time? I usually will give it a good 15 pages.

Blaming the Victims: Spurious Scholarship and the Palestinian Question.

Incredibly challenging to read, but I will finish it, regardless of how many times it will make me nauseated.

Just finished "Arcadia' by Lauren Groff

It's an interesting fiction novel about a commune in the late 60's and later, with lots of character development.

Finished "Why Be Happy When You Could Be Normal," Jeannette Winterson. Had a few good passages, but wish it would've been less preachy and name-dropping. Thought it would appeal to me b/c she is adopted into a very religious, rigid family, but it wasn't as good as it let on to be.

Drown, by Junot Diaz, on the other hand, was excellent. ten stories interwoven and set in the DR. He's a unique and interesting and honest, raw, writer.

I'm kinda bouncing between two at once: 'Haunted' from Palahniuk and re-reading World War Z because the trailer for its' movie adaptation looks so atrocious.

She's reading some romance novel slop about fairies and elves I think. Don't tell her I said that.
