Life, in my view, is a lot beter when you've got a stack of books you are looking forward to reading. Having the latest from Malcolm Gladwell, Walter Mosely, and Oscar Hijuelos piled on my nightstand is a major mood booster. Look for thoughts on these and other upcoming books in future blogs and print columns.
Until then, share what you saw this weekend. Did you get to Robert Klein at Morty's? Robin Williams at Purdue? Finally see "November" at the Phoenix? (It just got extended to Oct. 18, so you still have a chance.)
