Kate Says: "Reading Is Fun!"

Like most of you I'm an avid reader. I'm hoping to re-connect with old friends, make new friends, and of course spread the love of reading and writing around to everyone!

Daring Spectacle: Adventures in Deviant Journalism - Mark Morford WARNING: THIS BOOK IS NOT THE KIND OF BOOK YOU READ ALL AT ONCE

That said this is the BEST bathroom, bedroom, office, and commuter friendly book I've read in a while.

I've been a fan of Mark Morford's "Notes & Errata" online column ever since 2004 when I was sent the link by a friend who had just moved to San Francisco and thought I'd get a kick out of it. Well, she was certainly right because I just love opening my inbox on Wednesday's and Friday's to see Mark's new topic flash before my eyes. Mark Morford's column is bad medicine and his brand of bad medicine is just what I need!

This book is a compilation a lot of his writings over the years, as well as, hate mail (funny and sad all at the same time) and mullet haiku's (my favorite).

So, if I ever get a chance to take a month off and go on my route 66 tour in an awesome convertible, I most certainly plan on making a pit-stop in San Francisco, just to visit Napa Valley and take one of Mark's Vinyassa classes that he teaches (I won't look weird because I've been practicing this form of yoga pretty steadily for the last year or so) and briefly take up a few seconds of his time to state in no uncertain terms that I'm a HUGE fan of his writing! Watch out Mark Morford here I come :-)
