  • Heidi Pitlor: The Birthdays

    Heidi Pitlor: The Birthdays
    I'm loving this story about 3 siblings who gather to celebrate their dad's 75th birthday. It's frightening how many similarities there are with the Millers in the novel, and the Denise real-life siblings.

  • Susan Choi: American Woman

    Susan Choi: American Woman
    I'm reading this because I saw it on SuperSpecialK's bookshelf once and she told me I should read it. I'm having a bit of a hard time getting into it, but I think I'm supposed to.

  • Ayelet Waldman: Love and Other Impossible Pursuits

    Ayelet Waldman: Love and Other Impossible Pursuits
    Maybe it's because I like this author's husband's writing so much--but I've lapped up both of Ayelet Waldman's novels eagerly.

  • Martha Sherrill: The Ruins of California

    Martha Sherrill: The Ruins of California
    I loved this book, and burned through it in a day. A good read for many reasons, but particularly if you have a soft spot for San Francisco or California in general.

you lived there long to be considered native. And WHY is that people insist on calling it that?! That and "San Fran".


I'm not from there but I do visit quite frequently - I have a lot of great friends up there. Anyhoo - I remember as a kid my mom would refer to it as "Frisco." I would always correct her - I thought calling it "Frisco" sounded so lame!


my high school boyfriend called it Frisco. I'm sure he would be embarrassed to remember that now, he ended up moving there and lived there for 15 years.

then again, maybe he still does call it that.

just one of many reasons we're no longer together.


Anyone who calls SF "Frisco" deserves a solid bitchslap. They'll certainly remember not to call it that again!


Thx! :)
