On my nightstand…

Reading ListRead it, reading it, reading it next.

My Salinger Year is a terrific read if you ever read The Catcher in the Rye or any other book by J.D. Salinger. It is an intriguing look into the publishing and agent book industry and about Salinger and his fans. I was a bit bogged down with the author’s boyfriend in the book who was pretentious…I have to say I skimmed a lot of the sections he was in.

If you are intrigued by creative thinking, writing, drawing, anything Big Magic is great insight into the ideas surrounding creativity. I just started this book two days ago and I’m already half way through it. It’s a great read.

I grabbed The Clasp on a whim when I was picking up Big Magic because Mindy Kaling said EVERYONE was reading it. So I’m mainly going to see what all the hype is about.
