I am terrible at picking out books...

Okay, this is not entirely true. However, choosing to read a book about a girl who gets institutionalized when she is 13 and has a traumatic experience is perhaps not the best choice for my morning commute. I need to brace myself for being unfailingly cheerful and patient which means I need literature which, if not happy, doesn't drag me down. Let's just say that my current book fails to meet the minimum requirements. Why don't I just demote it to a weekend reading book? BECAUSE IT'S TOO INTERESTING TO STOP READING. I shall just have to plow through it and hope that it doesn't make me cry, which would be awkward.

No, there is nothing going on in my life this week. This weekend I am going to go do something touristy (no idea what) and go to the new Star Trek movie. This is in exchange for having a movie partner for the new Harry Potter when it comes out later this summer. I brought my Gryffindor track jacket thousands of miles across the world just for this occasion. Salute my nerdom!

You = silly one

I salute your H.P.-related nerdiness!
(not all that surprised you brought your track jacket)

I am not at all surprised either. I know how upset you were when the book series ended. I love that you've been so devoted to Harry all these years. It's nostalgic for me, your mother, a fond reminder of your childhood.
So, what book are you reading that is so good and so depressing?

Oh sorry, the one I mentioned last time. French, Le Pavillon des Enfants Fous by Valerie Valere.
