I like to listen to books while I work when I can (yay for the library!). I’m a little scattered with my reading, so I tend to have a few in progress at any given time.
Right now I’m alternating between:
I Shouldn’t Even Be Doing This by Bob Newhart
What can I say? I’m a sucker for reruns of The Bob Newhart Show and Newhart.
The Origin of Species by Charles Darwin
A classic. I felt like I needed to exercise my brain a bit.
Just My Type: A Book About Fonts by Simon Garfield
An excellent book for word nerds. I loved the section on the ampersand, but I might be biased (I have an ampersand tattoo on my ankle).
The Madman’s Daughter by Megan Shepherd
I just started this one, so I don’t have an opinion yet. Sounds interesting though.
And I have a few waiting in the wings:
Destiny of the Republic: A Tale of Madness, Medicine and the Murder of the President by Candice Millard
Back to Work by Bill Clinton
Annoying: The Science of What Bugs Us by Joe Palca and Flora Lichtman
The Adventure of English: The Biography of a Language by Melvyn Bragg
I read mainly fiction and memoirs at home and prefer my books in their classic form (i.e. paper). Right now I have Milk Glass Moon by Adriana Trigiani on my nightstand.
