What Lani’s Reading Now

It’s been awhile since I updated you guys on what I’m reading. Mostly that is because between all of the magazines I read and you know, work and kids, I haven’t gotten very far lately! Also, I listen to most of my books on Audible and per Quiet: The Power of Introverts in a World that Can’t Stop Talking, sometimes I just need quiet…

Have any of you read On the Road by Jack Kerouac? I tend to give myself a hard time for not having read most of the so-called seminal books, and so finally committed to this one when I saw it on Audible. And after all of that build up, I have to say, I don’t think I got it. Maybe there is something wrong with me but I have an issue with books that have no redeeming characters. I enjoyed Crime and Punishment, which I read as an adult, more than On the Road. A lot more, as I actually really liked it. I’d love to know if you’ve read On the Road and what you thought about it.

After that unsatisfying experience, I rewarded myself with an actual paper book of short stories (I have always loved short stories) by Philip Dean Walker, a local author and an acquaintance. At Danceteria and Other Stories opens with a story featuring Halston, the legendary fashion designer. This was a good omen!  Philip’s stories are pure fiction yet weave in celebrities and places we know, and the onset of the AIDS epidemic, giving them a wonderfully familiar feeling as the stories unfold. They also mostly take place in New York City, which of course endeared me to them all the more.

I’m now very far into listening to The Girl in the Spider’s Web, a continuation of the Stieg Larsson Millennium series. It is so fun that I can’t stop listening to it, yet I don’t want it to end. After this I will probably be ready for a “work” book. I have Smarter, Faster, Better by Charles Duhigg in my Audible queue. Have any of you read that one?

.Finally, Mr. Real Life Style forwarded me perhaps the best fashion interview I have EVER read. Pay special attention to the parts about what Jack, Tom Ford’s son, is allowed to wear. Hysterical. Katie M, I hope you are reading this!
