As far back as I can remember, I’ve always loved reading. In fact, one of my most vivid memories from childhood is when I had strep throat in second grade, and my mom bought me a new American Girls book to read while I laid on the couch all day. Heaven (well, about as heavenly as strep throat can be).

Nowadays I usually have a few different reads going at one time. Here’s the current stack on my nightstand:

1. Is Everyone Hanging Out Without Me? by Mindy Kaling /// Given that I am a huge fan of Kelly Rajnigandha Kapoor (remember that episode?) and I LOL at real-life Mindy Kaling’s hilarious twitter feed on a daily basis, this was a no-brainer.

2. Reinventing the Body, Resurrecting the Soul by Deepak Chopra /// I know for fact that if I was a teenager in the sixties, I would have been a hippie. I love anything new-agey and whole foodsy and insightful. I took a meditation class in college and LOVED it. I turn to this book whenever I am seeking inspiration or feeling emotionally drained.

3. Then Again by Diane Keaton /// For some reason, I am completely enamored with Diane Keaton lately. She has a such a presence in the art, real estate, and fashion worlds (not to mention acting) and I am totally fascinated.
