Quote to Live By

I know I’ve been reading too much light fare when it’s been months since I’ve stopped on a sentence, re-read it and written down the quote in my “reading journal.” Finally, Curtis Sittenfeld made me stop and think – and appreciate – while I was reading The Man of My Dreams.

She writes:

“Perhaps this is how you know you are doing the thing you’re intended to: No matter how slow or slight your progress, you never feel that it’s a waste of time.”

Whether you’re talking about motherhood, a career, or relationships, these are certainly words to live by.

Of her three books, American Wife was my favorite, followed by Prep, then Man of My Dreams. I highly recommend Sittenfeld for her honest characters, her wit and humor, and her tight prose.  Can’t wait for the next novel!
