Words & Tunes




I plan to spend this weekend at home with my wonderful husband and crazy pup. I've decided to take on reading The Brothers Karamazov, finished in 1880 by Russian author, Fyodor Dostoyevsky. I've been reading reviews about this book and it's heralded as an amazing piece of work by people like Freud, Einstein, and even Pope Benedict XVI. With over 1000 pages, I'm thinking this one will keep me busy for QUITE a while.

Next, I want to read Freedom by Johnathan Franzen. I heard his interview on NPR the other day discussing the book and Oprah just announced that it's the final pick for her Book Club.

On another note, this week I have been thoroughly enjoying the music of Joao Gilbrato, a Brazilian musician who began the Bossa Nova movement in the late 1950s. His music has a nice, light, jazzy sound that makes me feel like I should be sipping iced tea or wine spritzers on a faraway beach. I highly recommend creating a Pandora station dedicated to Joao Gilbrato. Hope you have a WONDERFUL weekend!
