I'm taking a general beating lately for a) not asking for help and b) acting like I can do everything myself. And while my gut response is to say a) asking for help is not something that comes easily to me and b) what makes you think I can't do everything myself?? (as long as you don't look too closely, anyway), I see the logic in what I'm hearing. So to prove that I listen when a whole pile of people say basically the same thing, I have another topic that I need help on.
I need something to read. Something gripping but not scary. Light and frothy is fine, but so is dark and intense. No science fiction and no serial killers. I'm partial to mysteries, but they tend to be heavy on the serial killers. I guess you can't have everything.
I went to the library last week and had a terrible time picking anything. I ended up getting a bunch of non-fiction books on my new little fixation (don't ask), but nothing that I really felt like climbing into bed with. And I'm awfully used to reading before I go to sleep, so it's messed me up a little. (That and the fact that I seem to be missing a bunch of books that I all of a sudden am obsessed with rereading). You really can't have everything.
So I need ideas. Read anything great lately? I'm up for anything, as long as it has a recommendation behind it. And I know there are some voracious readers amongst us, with many strong opinions. Let's hear them.
See? I can too ask for help.
