WHAT THEY'RE READING
I'm trying to finish Midnight's Children
by Salman Rushdie. I have to reread almost every paragraph.
Lynne Spears' book. I can't put it down! Britney's ups and downs are overwhelming, but it's great to get a mother's perspective.
Raymond Carver stories. It's great. When I'm very busy, I like to read short stories so I don't have to drag it out.
