OFT (Off topic): Whats everyone reading now

By July 31, 2013 - 12:34pm

As for me haven't been doing that much reading lately. Found that I hardly read any more as well. Have to say do have times like this and others don't. Guess it depends on the book itself as well.

This book isn’t out yet, but will be out on 10/8/13

My Story, Elizabeth Smart with Chris Stewart

I’m so glad to see that Ms Smart is doing this because I always wanted to know her side of the story. Besides her parents (Ed and Louise Smart)s’ side of the story and which I read when it 1st came out.

Wonder Women: Sex, Power, and the Quest for Perfection, Debora L. Spar

At the same time got and started to read My Story, Elizabeth Smart with Chris Stewart, but stopped. In which I was looking toward to it, but changed my mind afterwards. At the same time theres no pictures and especially any new ones that they have. Basically, felt whats point of continuing it when I already know everything thats needs to know about this. Found I'm way beyond fed up with her, her parents, and/or everyone/anyone else using the spotlight when their 15 min of frame is up and beyond. Especially, after reading Ms Smart's parents memoir when it 1st came out as wel.

Think thats it for now.

Thank you, again, in advance.
