The history of my living

Well, for those of you who may have been disturbed by my post, "The return of TV," let me reassure you — I do still read. Jim and I recently purchased a bookcase that we are filling with all our new books that we got for Christmas and I am looking forward to reading them all. I am committed to expanding my mind through the written word.

My first book of the new year was Living History by Hillary Rodham Clinton. Some of you may think that this is an odd choice, but you will soon learn that I am a biography/autobiography and true story junky; however I am consciously trying to explore other genres and am forcing myself to read an adequate number of fiction novels as well. Through this blog medium, I would like to comment on the books I read; however I am not one for lengthy commentary. I know what I like and what I don’t like, but I can’t give you much insight as to whether you will like or dislike something. In terms of Living History, I enjoyed learning about Hillary’s life. I particularly liked reading about her younger life and some of her more real life feelings and experiences. A few chapters did get a little boring when she started using a lot of political names and of course, Hillary is still in public life and playing the political game, so much of it is obviously biased and campaigny. Make sense?
