Reading

Now that I take the Metro to and from my office I've been able to actually start reading for pleasure again. After 4 years of reading for classes, it's great to relax on the train with a book. I finished Cheating Destiny by James Hirsch a few weeks ago and was completely impressed. If you haven't read it, do it! It's awesome and is probably going to be gracing the Christmas stockings of my mom and dad.

My fiance' just finished reading it and the conversations that it has started has been awesome. I feel like he has learned more from the book than he has in the 6 years we've been together. It's great to be able to discuss diabetes with him and feel like he understands. A few weeks ago, he even let me test his blood sugar (118mg/dl after eating....bastard!) just to see what it was.

Right now, I'm reading Gluten Free Girl. I don't have celiac but I love reading the author's blog, http://www.glutenfreegirl.com/ and her book is proving to be a great read.

Check them out if you haven't!
