Night Owl

I am up late reading Pat Conroy's new book, My Reading Life. Good stuff, folks!

In the span of two chapters, my emotions mirror masks hanging at the entrance to local town theatres. Conroy's introduction to the opposite of librarians in Eileen Hunter had me rolling with laughter. Then, I was shocked at my own tears while reading the reaction from family members to the release of his book, "The Great Santini."

Oh, and I have a book suggestion for Mr. Conroy. Read, The Man who Loved Books too much: The True Story of a Thief, a Detective, and a World of Literary Obsession by Allison Hoover Bartlett. The story of David belongs in this book!
