What are you reading?
One of my favorite questions to ask people I'm getting to know – what are you reading now, or what have you read lately that you can't put down?
Right now, I'm reading “The Richest Girl in the World: The Extravagant Life and Fast Times of Doris Duke.”
It's good and full of interesting information about the “rich-rich” and heirs to the robber-baron tycoons, but it's not exactly can't-put-it-down material.
The last book like that I read – in two or three sittings – was “Healing Hearts: A Memoir of a Female Heart Surgeon”
I'm squeamish, but it didn't stop me from practically inhaling the story of a woman who talked about her career and gave me some much-needed perspective about how heart disease. Before reading this book, I never realized that women are six times as likely to die of heart disease than of breast cancer and heart disease kills more women over 65 than do all cancers combined, according to the Mayo Clinic.
Did you know that jaw pain can be a sign of a heart attack? Me either, until I read this book.
Now it's your turn – what are you reading, or what's the last thing you couldn't put down?
