What I’m Reading

I’ve been wanting to read this since it first came out but never got the time because of my deadlines and constant marketing stuff. Well, now that Facebook Ad Manager has finally broken up with me for the third and final time, I now have tons of time in my hands.

Actually, I don’t because I have a publishing deadline to meet although with characters refusing to talk to me, looks like it’s not gonna happen anyway. But I digress.

So needing some time to decompress from all the writing and marketing, I’m reading When Breath Becomes Air, the bestselling memoir of the late neurosurgeon, Paul Kalanithi who was diagnosed with inoperable lung cancer at thirty-six. “One day he was a doctor treating the dying, the next he was a patient struggling to live.”

I’ve actually been listening to the audiobook for the last three weeks but because of deadlines, I just haven’t been able to finish it. Not that I wanted to. There were passages I had to pause and repeat until I figured I might as well have the book in my hands so I could read the lines again and again. So finally, yesterday, I placed my order for the paperback and today it arrived.

“Human knowledge is never contained in one person. It grows from the relationships we create between each other and the world, and still it is never complete.” 
― Paul KalanithiWhen Breath Becomes Air

      1. I apparently signed up during that time using the email I use for newsletters and the scandal put me off, too. Dang, it put me off the book I was writing that had a porn star in it LOL

      2. Same here. Whatever the motive was, it worked. I don’t think his career has recovered. I’ll still write that book though. Luca was Gareth’s friend so he has a book coming up.

      4. I’ve been finding them on Tumblr. And a few FB groups are pretty darn NSFW. I have to hide my timeline from my kid or unfollow certain groups altogether 😆😅

      5. lol I know what you mean. I have a sneaky 10 year old who likes to come up behind me when I’m on the computer….I was doing a little toy research that got her attention! Pill. So now I’ve got to confine it to hidden in my room on my laptop with privacy locks all engaged.
