last night i just started reading “a general theory of love,” which came highly recommended from a designer who was in town for work the other week. she raved about it, so i grabbed it from the library and am giving it a shot. about 40 pages in, and finding the book interesting but very academic. you have to focus to read it, and i have yet to come across anything particularly gripping or worth jotting down, but still. plus, the authors use lots of big words, so it’s good mental floss!
