My eyes are bleeding

by Amy Turn Sharp


I read like three books at a time. This week it is four. I really f with my brain doing this. I lie in my bed devouring the books until my eyes burn burn burn. I have been doing this since I was a kid. I love pushing it to the level of pain that feels like blood will soon pour from my eyes. I have even started to wear my reading glasses. My dreams last night were filled with puff pastry, coriander, sexy times with Irish men, aspergers syndrome, and veiled ladies.
I am reading:
1.Nigella Express by Nigella Lawson (thanks Jenn!) Loving it as she has a croque monsieur recipe along with a ton of other quick and snappy meals. I am into it with pen and paper.
2. Persian Girls by Nahid Rachlin A memoir I can tell will be tragic as it unfolds.
3. Tara Road by Maeve Binchy Yeah, I caught the tale end of the Lifetime movie with the perfectly coiffed Andie McDowell and I wanted to read it. I like it.
4. Look me in the Eye by John Elder Robison I am IN LOVE with this book so far- I think this guy can write and I prefer this to his bro's tale of insanity. (Running with Scissors) Laughing out loud. It makes you look through a new window this book. Get it.
