The Post-Birthday World by Lionel Shriver
It was nice to read a novel that lived up to its intriguing, "Sliding Doors"-type premise. Not a quick read, but worth my time.
Plan B: Further Thoughts on Faith by Anne Lamott
A collection of her salon.com columns, written during the buildup to the Iraq war. She reminds me that smart liberals can be faithful Christians.

Feeling overwhelmed by the level of customer service at the mall this morning. So many people are interested in my needs, all of whom also apparently use Crest White Strips. It almost makes me feel nostalgic for the cranky unkempt saleswoman who glares at me when I order bread at my local bakery. But not quite.
