I read Jen Lancaster's book The Tao of Martha: My Year of LIVING; Or, Why I'm Never Why I'm Never Getting All that Glitter off of the Dog recently and really enjoyed it. I've read several of her books and she is very funny. This one is also touching (I won't give away the reason why).
In this book she decided to devote a year of her life to living like Martha Stewart. The most important lesson she learned (or as she puts it - the Tao of Martha) is "the only way to fail is not to try." Words to live by! Whenever I read Jen Lancaster's books, I come away feeling like she would be a fun friend. If you are looking for a quick, entertaining read, you can't go wrong with this one.
I'm currently in the middle of The Cuckoo's Calling by Robert Galbraith (the pseudonym for J.K. Rowling). It's really excellent and I'm sure I'll have more to say about it when I've finished reading it. Stay tuned!
