From Susan Bullington Katz
My favorite book this year - and I was late to it - was The Brief Wondrous Life of Oscar Wao, by Junot Diaz. I admit I have been on a Junot Diaz kick, after hearing him at LATC and later at UC Channel Islands. So after I read Oscar Wao, I didn't much breathe till I'd also read Drown and This Is How You Lose Her. You know how we were all talking about connecting with others via emotions -- this is what he does in these books, seemingly effortlessly. I also have a soft spot for any work (book, play, movie) where the main character is just trying to figure out his or her life. 


 From Rosemary Zibart
I read a book by a teenager who was in Auschwitz but survived with her mother and in the book My Bridges of Hope tells about her harrowing experiences post-war before managing to get to the United States. Remarkable!! I also read a book that takes place in N.C. called the The Enchanted Life of Adam Hope that I found well-written and pretty interesting -- think it will become a book club favorite. I also read Cold Mountain for the first time and it's quite a memorable read. Now I'm reading a book called Some Nerve about how to become braver!!!

Lisa Kline:
Oh, yes, I can answer. A friend and I decided we had read Angle of Repose by Wallace Stegner many years ago but had dim memories of it and agreed to read it again, so I just finished it. It's a powerful story about the development of the west and a very long and difficult marriage. Reading it now, after visiting the west, and from the  vantage point of a 28 year marriage, I appreciated the book so much more. I also didn't remember that it was about a woman who was a writer and an artist married to an engineer -- total opposites -- and she was a female artist back in 1890, when things were so very different. It really made an impression on me. 

From Kay Goldstein

I loved reading The Light Between Oceans this summer at the beach. A well crafted  and poignant story.  I also read a few non fiction books that I found gave me some profound new perspectives: Quiet, The Power of Introverts in a World that Can't  StopTalking  by Susan Cain and Lean In, by Sheryl Sandberg. I just finished Roam by Daniel Wallace whois the author of Big Fish and another Carolina Author. I wanted  another dip into his magical realism and found his quirky telling of tales has a way of catching you off guard in some beautifully crafted and emotional passages. Being caught off guard in a book leaves lots of room to take it all in.

In the latest installment of crazy jobs I've had, I dish some dirt on what it's like to be a New York catering waitress. Lots of wild stories.

I have a dream of getting my apartment featured on apartment therapy's small but cool photo gallery. I swear, if we had hardwood floors, we'd be a shoo-in. It's always fun to look at these slide shows for inspiration.

yes i already read that tiny houses article and it was amazing. I'm not gonna lie, I would have no objection to living in a slightly bigger place, but I do love the simplicity of small.

I had so much fun interviewing people down at city hall yesterday who were getting married. Fun things that didn't make it in the article -- the guys in kilts are volunteer law enforcement officers, and the couple who'd been together for 42 years, one of the guys said he was wearing a black suit because he was upset about Amy Winehouse. Also, the couple holding the baby didn't want their child's face on the internet, but she was SO insanely adorable. You can check out the whole slideshow. Tell me what you think!
