Adding to My List

As one book lover to all the rest, y'know how we all have a long list of books we've just GOT to read. Well, I just watched a DVR'd Oprah about Dave Sheff and his son, Nic. They were both on the show, and Nic radiated beauty and truth. I just wanted to hug him. He seemed so familiar to me.

I can't wait to read BOTH of their books. I suppose the topic of 'addiction' interests me because I grew up with it surrounding me. I've somehow escaped it, but my heart will remain forever full for the people I know and love, and for those I've never met, who battle it every day.

David's book is Beautiful Boy.

And Nic wrote his account in Tweak.

So, just as soon as I'm done with A New Earth, I'll be picking those up.
