I'm currently reading 'What Would Audrey Do?: Timeless Lessons for Living with Grace & Style' by Pamela Keogh. I'm only a few pages in but enjoying it very much so far

Grace: A Memoir, by Grace Coddington.

Loving it thus far; it's got a great tone, and I really like how she mixes in the present with the past, for e.g. at the beginning of chapters.

I am currently helping my BF with reading for one of his classes, so I'm reading the books he had assigned ... It's for a class called Postcolonial Literature.

Yesterday I read Animal Farm by George Orwell, which quickly became one of my favourite reads this year, and I was not expecting to like it at all, since I'm usually into Chick Lit & YA! Today I'm planning to tackle Saint Joan by George Bernard Shaw & Lady Windemere's Fan by Oscar Wilde, also for his class. And on the side I'm reading The Perks of Being a Wallflower, but honestly, I don't like it at all ...

Really? That's great news! I'm heading into it without knowing anything about it. I'm ashamed to say that the only work of Wilde's I've read is The Canterville Ghost. But I did love it!

A couple of days ago, I finished Seven Days in the Art World by Sarah Thornton. I don't know much about the art world, but it was an interesting read. I like behind-the-scenes books like this one.

I'm re-reading a modeling business book, while I try to decide what to read next.

Hi Fellow Readers! I thought I'd share some good and some bad "news" or links about the state of books and reading.

First the bad...

Second, the good - or at least something to which we can relate!
