must read!

After a busy weekend of painting, today seems rather humdrum!

Over lunch I finished this book:
So so so so good!  Sprinkled with recipes, amazing descriptions of food, crazy and eccentric characters, written with honesty and strength.  I loved it!  It's a memoir written, the author admits, with slight embellishment.  Such a good read!  I want to find more of her books.

What good books have you been reading lately?

And do any of you have books that inspire you to run?  I always love Born to Run, but am looking for another book or two to read before the marathon to get me even more excited.  Movies work, too!

  1. Good running movies include Chariots of Fire; Fire on the Track, Prefontaine or Without Limits, all about Steve Prefontaine; and Running Brave about Billy Mills.

    Books I've heard of but not read include Loneliness of a Long-Distance Runner and Once a Runner. Dad's read Once a Runner and really liked it.

    Another inspiring sports movie not about running is Breaking Away, set at Indiana University and about some underdog townies who want to enter IU's annual cycling race.
