The beginning of October reading thread! Can't Post

Ah, October---my favorite month! The summer's over, the days are shorter, the temperatures are cooler, the trees are starting to get an expectant golden glow.

So of course it's also ragweed *ah choo!* season Mad

Ah well.

This last week I read Nora Ephron's I Feel Bad About My Neck. It's a series of essays on getting older, and how life changes for women, and is short and sweet and very funny in that "Yes! I know what she means!" way, over and beyond her witty writing style. What's sad is reading "when I get to be in my eighties I'll...." and knowing that she died at 71 earlier this year. Unsure

I just watched her last movie, "Julie and Julia", which she wrote and directed. Delightful, and not a bad epitaph at all.

What have you been reading?
