Long time, no post: Subway reading

Been awhile since we have visited the blog. If you're still following, we really appreciate it!

It's amazing how much reading one can do on the subway. Truly a great way to block out the sensory overload that is summer on the subway.

In the past two weeks, Mary has read these books:

Lady Chatterley's Lover: Awesome. Still somewhat shocking, really.
Foreign Tongue: Chick lit (woman jilted, goes to Paris to mend her broken heart), but elevated by a philosophical discussion of translation.
French Dirt: True story of a New York man who, for a year, lives in a tiny town in the south of France and grows a garden. LOVED this book.
The Hours: Loved the movie. Loved the book even more.

Will try to post more often. City life is keeping us busy (plus Mary is going to the gym like a madwoman these days!).
