Peer pressure with a bit of sibling rivalry. From my Sis. We're running it together. She's in the "rah rah running" stage right now. I'm in the "crap, I have to go for a run so I don't die when I attempt this stupid half marathon" stage.
Anyway, it's a little eerie to be out running so early. I confess, I'm a little skittish being alone--just me, the fog, and my iPod. And after reading this book, no one could blame me. I admit, I change my running route each day as a precaution to thwart the imaginary stalkers.
So....the book. Now, I'm not trying to be bossy but you seriously should read this. I thought the Kite Runner was my favorite summer read of 2007. I was mistaken. It was The Double Bind.*
So go read it NOW (bossy, was that forceful enough?). And then come back and comment, okay?
*This certainly wasn't a summer of fluffy chick lit reading for me. No sireee. I'm currently reading A Thousand Splendid Suns. And up next? The Great Gatsby. Why? You'll totally understand after you read The Double Bind.
