Despite a pretty intense tri-state snowstorm, we don't actually get a snow day. But it can't hurt to dream, right? I took the liberty of asking some of our 20something bloggers what they'd be reading if they were home today. Their answers might surprise you!
The Olive Reader's Erica B. would be reading Showgirls, Teen Wolves, and Astro Zombies: A Film Critic's Year-Long Quest to Find the Worst Movie Ever Made. She informs me she just finished a chapter on Anne B. Real: a reimagining of The Diary of Anne Frank, wherein Anne Frank is an aspiring rapper.
Harper Perennial's Michael Signorelli, aka "Sig," writes: "In reality, if I were home, I’d be reading manuscripts on submission. However, if I were to take a break, or felt rebellious, I’d read either Fear and Trembling by Kierkegaard or Molloy by Beckett or—and I just picked this up at last night at Greenlight Books—Eat When You Feel Sad by Zachary German."
Joseph Papa, quite possibly Lady Gaga's biggest in-house devotee, would be reading Eight White Nights by Andre Aciman ("I LOVED his first novel and can't wait to read this one.")
Harper Academic's Lauren B: "If I’m in the mood for something literary: Middlesex by Jeffery Eugenides. His prose is so lyrical, I could read twenty pages of the man brushing his teeth. If I’m in the mood for something fun: either This Charming Man by Marian Keyes or L.A. Candy by Lauren Conrad. I love a good chick lit diversion when I’m trapped inside."
What about you? What's your favorite snow day reading?
