What I Happen to Be Reading At the Moment

"A thirteen-year-old is a kaleidoscope of different personalities, if not in most ways a mere figment of her own imagination. At that age, what and who you are depends largely on what book you happen to be reading at the moment.”

 

While not 13 anymore, the desire to read almost anything and everything in order to read for fun and for experience is still around. I'm currently working on my PhD in a physical science, but I love to read and books are one of my non-science hobbies.

Screening Room: Family Pictures

Screening Room: Family Pictures - Alan Lightman Screening Room is broken down into a series of essays that are essentially vignettes of Wightman's family past. I thought it was a creative way of retelling a family story, though the book designer responsible for the interior who chose Papyrus for section headings was misguided. The outside of the book is naturally very lovely, but nothing can make up for Papyrus in a book about a Jewish family living in the South.
