I'm reading - State of Wonder by Ann Patchett
I had never heard of Ann Patchett until the news broke that she was opening a bookstore in Nashville, after the city lost two of it's biggest booksellers. Shortly after, State of Wonder popped up on one of the 10 best lists that I follow. Coincidence? Maybe, but I took it as a sign. And what luck. State of Wonder is a wonderfully written tale of pharmacologist who steps way, way outside of her comfort zone in an effort to comfort the wife of a missing colleague who doesn't believe that her husband is dead. Sometimes it pays to read a book that outside your own reading zone.
