A Million Little Pieces by James Frey
Year of Magical Thinking by Joan Didion
The Omnivore's Dilemma by Michael Pollan

You won't have time to read books with the new sex chair.

I have read both A Short History and Fast Food Nation. I remember liking A Short History but I do not remember a single thing about it. But then I like Bill Bryson. Fast Food Nation bothered me immensely. Can't wait to hear your thoughts on it!

Didion's book is far superior to Frey's, but I suppose you should read both and do your own side-by-side comparison. I did, even after the whole Oprah dressing down.

Arti: Maybe I should read some books ABOUT sex.

Carrie: I've started "A Short History" and it's fascinating. I didn't know that science could be so interesting.

Steve: I am approaching both books with some trepidation. I love to read about others' emotional recoveries. That way, I don't need to go into therapy myself, right?
