a million little pieces

I just finished reading A Million Little Pieces by James Frey last night. This book really.. hit home for me. I'm not a drug addict or an alcoholic or a criminal, but I can get very down about life. I worry about things and I question things and I question the point of it all. I could completely understand James in the book. It's strange to become so attached to a character in a book when this character actually exists, this story is his life--at least in some ways.

I read this book not to question how much was true, but to learn about the character in the book, and find out what happened in the end. I'll admit I'm very disappointed to find how much is real (or not), but the fact remains that I read the book not knowing, and I enjoyed it as I read. I really found his thought process was interesting. And I still liked it.

Now I have no idea what to read next. I have an ever-growing stack of books I have yet to read. I should continue on to the fourth book in The Dark Tower series, but I still have books from this time last year I have yet to open. And I just bought Revolutionary Road and Atonement a couple weekends ago. And I will no doubt be getting books for Christmas. I have a problem. I don't read as much as I used to.
