30 Days of Truth - Day 17

Day 17 → A book you’ve read that changed your views on something.

Today I realized that I do not read enough.  So I've updated my iBooks to include some pretty awesome classics.  One book that does stand out in my mind though is Cher's autobiography (stop laughing - you can totally pick this up for $.40 on Amazon).

I read this book during my days when I didn't want to get out of bed.  The lonely, dismal days after R. had died.  EVILBOY would be playing alone or sleeping and I would be in my pyjamas with a week's worth of knots in my hair, hoping that no one would come to the door to try to cheer me up that day.

I don't even know why I picked up this book.  I think I just really liked the cover, which is how I pick many of the books that I read.  What I didn't realize at the time was that Cher had also experienced a great loss in her life.  Reading her words, and being able to associate myself with them really made me feel like a diva again.  I brushed my hair, I painted my nails, I got out of the house and went back to school. I was able to do all that because I got out of bed when I was able to relate to someone who is a superstar (and probably really awesome to hang around with).

I'm not saying this book helped me get out of my funk, it wasn't some sort of miracle like that, but I remember feeling less alone hearing of her loss (even though they weren't married, he was really a big part of her life).

I would also like to mention Red is Best which gave me the will to be stubborn!  Thanks for that.

My drool and uber-bald head were also the best.

 This may also be a good time to mention The Little Prince graphic novel contest which closes today at 6pm (est).
