Well, to say the least, I have moved on. And, I've moved on to an Oprah book club selection. She has been more than wonderful enough to start her boook club back up for 2007 with Sidney Poitier's autobiography, Measure of a Man. And for all of you who know me well, NO... I have not decided to read this just because I'm Oprah-obsessed. Oprah's book selections have always been excellent reads and I'm very interested in learning more about the wonderful man behind the book. While I love all types of books, there have been very few times when I have felt compelled to read a biography/autobiography. However, I read some of the Amazon.com reviews and was pleased to see that this one would not be like a typical autobiography. It is very conversational in form.
So it's probably been about two to three weeks now since I've picked it up. Right now, I regret to inform you that I am only on page 75. Aside from the fact that I have been knee high in fashion magazines lately, I have no excuse. I'm not doing more work than usual. As a matter of fact, I've probably gotten a bit lazier... [Speaking of lazy, I should be studing for my french exam on Tuesday.] To make matters worse, Oprah will soon be announcing the next book club book! It's bad enough that I keep adding books to my must read list faster than I can cross them off. What's a girl to do?
Well, if you're wondering what I'm doing tonight, I'll be up reading Mr. Poitier. It's too bad that I've already lost an hour today since we set our clocks forward. It looks like I'll be sleeping in a bit late demain. Luckily I don't have class tomorrow. As for that french exam, I'm a professional procrasinator. It'll work out.
I encourage you to browse through the book online or listen to Sydney Poitier read an exerpt while you read along.
