He came home from a business trip last week to find my two most recent acquisitions from Amazon.com sitting on the kitchen counter:
"Split: A Memoir of Divorce" by Suzanne Finnamore, and
"Couldn't Keep it To Myself" by Wally Lamb and the women of York Correctional Institution

and giggled. He's not in danger. Just two more books in my string of what he calls 'depressing stories.' I kissed him hard and held him for an extra minute just to reassure him.
