Book 44: Don't Get Too Comfortable

David Rakoff has compiled some thoughtful essays in here. There are also snide essays and funny essays. On the Snark-O-Meter I would nestle him between Sarah Vowell and David Sedaris. I liked the essay about his visit to Martha Stewart Omnimedia the best of them all. The Log Cabin Republican essay was also a good one, though not as thoughtful as when Joel Derfner went to Ex-Gay Camp. I really, really found the fashion essay to be a mean spirited and boring drag. Not that kind of drag.

I finished this book over 2 weeks ago and just didn't feel like blogging about it. I think that writing is taking the fun out of reading. IT'S LIKE HOMEWORK. Only I won't get a degree when I'm done.
