Reading. Strange as it might be to say, given my line of work ‘n’ all, I’d done very little reading over the past four or five months, owing to having taken on a new job in the Biz Post. Lately, however, I’ve been getting back to reading lots and lots — and, call me a nerd all you like, it’s been such a joy. Also — forget yoga — if you get a good book, reading is way more de-stressing than that. Recent books that I’ve read and loved include Rebecca Miller’s The Private Lives of Pippa Lee (out in a few weeks) and Willy Vlautin’s Northline. I’ve got the new Patrick McGrath novel on my hitlist along with the newbie from Toby Litt.
