I Finally Read A Book! (Non Self-Help)
It has been longer than I can remember the last time I read a book...an entire book, that wasn't about grammar, music, broadcasting, or leadership. I hate to admit it, but I hate reading fiction and rarely have the need to read an entire book. I'm good after about 3 chapters. This book took me nearly a month to read. A chapter here, a chapter there. There are two things that strike me about this book. 1) The author has a masters degree in English, writes for Rolling Stone and DJ's on the local radio station...So it isn't too far from what I've been reading. 2) This is a SAD book. He lost the love of his life! Married for just a short while...she died. It shook the foundation of his soul...his life was over. It made me cry, made me wonder how it is in his shoes. Not what I normally read...I like it light, funny, and quick.
If you love music, well written sentences, and an occasional expletive...this book is a must read.
