Monday Funday

This title is clearly a lie, because Mondays are never fun. Are they?

I did something to my back yesterday or Saturday overnight...because it is excruciatingly painful every time I move. Mr. Smith had the fabulous idea to sit in bed with the heating pad last night and read, which felt amazing. And I slept wonderfully. And this morning, woke up to the same damn pain. I'm trying to avoid a trip to the chiropractor (I'm tired of paying $20 copays!), so I'm going to give it another day. Fingers crossed.

Last night, I started reading American Wife. I keep hearing good things about this book...but so far, I have found it pretty boring. I only made it through about 10 or so pages before setting it down in favor of this week's issue of Time. Have you read American Wife? Does it get more interesting? Book reviews appreciated.

Update: just spoke to Lisa, who coincidentally also started reading American Wife this weekend (possibly because we're in the same bloggy book club). And also stopped after 10 pages because she thought it was boring. Hmmmm.

hmm interesting... I haven't picked it up yet for the book club, but maybe I won't?

Bloggy book club? That sounds fun!!

I was born in Indianapolis, IN (my family still lives there) and my grandparents had a little place in Bloomington at Lake Monroe until my grandfather died. I LOVE Bloomington, IN! I loved going to Brown County downtown and visiting the Park.

If you get past those first 10 pages, it's really good! It gets totally juicy and saucy!

I hope your back feels better soon. It sucks when you hurt your back - it seems there is never much to do to make it better!

I thought American Wife sounded really interesting, so I am surprised to hear it is so boring! Ha ha. Good to know ;)

I am on page 90 right now (did I miss out on a bloggy book club?) and its getting more interesting. I will keep reading it but its in a big pile of books I am trying to get through.

You gotta get to at least page 100 before you can a book boring :) I actually really enjoyed American Wife!
