I just finished Everyone Worth Knowing by Lauren Weisberger (my review here), and now I'm reading Some Girls Are by Courtney Summers.
Hannah (Paperback Treasures)
I am currently reading Boomsday, by Christopher Buckley. It is about a young woman who comes up with the idea of presenting legislation that will allow Baby Boomers to voluntarily "transition" or commit suicide at age 70... you know, to help the country out of its recession and debt. Besides, Babyboomers are really messing things up... using all the social security funds and living lives of leisure not wanting to work, etc...
Ahem. I am a boomer. Social Security is not getting used up by us, it is getting misappropriated by politicians. I have worked for every penny I have ever had. Not many. It is true I have not saved enough for my retirement... but I am not and never have lived off the system. I do NOT want to voluntarily transition at age 70, even if it is a good long ways off.
Funny thing... I am enjoying the book. It is a great way to get us all talking about the issue of SS. It is a great laugh and well written, even if a little short on action and long on narrative. Buckley is a great writer.
My own novel, for those who like to discover new writers, is Across the Desperate Miles...
