Bishop, California

We decided to take a trip to the Eastern Sierras this weekend…It was such a lovely getaway! We stopped in the little town of Bishop. Of course, I made a b-line for the bookstore, called Spellbinder. I picked up a copy of “Reading My Father,” a memoir written by William Styron’s daughter, Alexandra. Ms. Styron profiles her life with her famous father, who struggled with writing, depression and, at times, his will to stay alive. (Have you read William Styron’s “Darkness Visible”? It’s brilliant.)

I’m completely absorbed in this book. We’re back home now. With a few hours left of daylight, I’m heading out to the backyard to finish reading in the hammock under our giant magnolia tree.

Anyone out there read anything interesting this weekend? I’m updating my summer reading list!

I’m just finishing “A Three Dog Life” by Abigail Thomas. It’s a memoir about Thomas’ effort to build a new life after a devastating tragedy. I so admire her bravery (and beautiful prose.) She finds tremendous comfort from the company of her three dogs, hence the title.

I’ve also been going through stacks of decor books. Still trying to arrange our little house…

What are you reading??
