2013 Reads

A little late. But who cares? As Dr. Seuss said so eloquently, How did it get so late so soon? It's night before it's afternoon. December is here before it's June. My goodness how the time has flewn. How did it get so late so soon?"

I can't imagine life with Dr. Seuss, or any of these writers, their books my favourite reads last year (in no particular order). 

Smart. Funny.
Even sorta math-y. 

TELL YOUR STORY
(even when it's heartbreaking).

Made me want to make
a mix tape. And find my
old friends. And it made
me feel again too
(because I stopped
feeling for a while.)

Thanks to Susan Cain
and stories like these,
I'm not so weird
anymore. 

Maybe cancer does
indeed reveal you
more than it changes you?
Whatever the answer, I
still fucking hate it.

Any book you recommend is a book (or books) that I will purchase, borrow, beg or steal (okay, maybe not steal) posthaste. Lucky for me, I have a Barnes and Noble gift card just waiting to be spent...

Thank you for these!!

I was just thinking that I would ask around for any good books people have read, and here they are. I like Susan Cain also. I told someone once I was hyper-sensitive and they made fun of me. You either get shyness or not I guess.
