Recent Reads Update

I finished this book last night. It's a good one; I finally understand why smokers smoke. I really never have--sure it's an addiction, but what a messy, smelly, dangerous one. Julia Hansen's memoir is not funny (as one of the jacket quotes says it is) but it is touching, tear-provoking and thoughtful. A very good read. And...her relationship with her mother and her experience of her childhood made me think of my own...

I'm afraid to read this book. I WAS a smoker for many, many yrs. I quit a little over a year ago. I am happy to remain smoke free.
I enjoy reading your blog!!
