My Super Bad Day/ Good Memory of a Book

Weight: They Myth of Atlas and Heracles by Jeanette Winterson

Jeanette Winterson is one of my favorite authors. She has this fantastic ability to take the simplest words and thoughts and transform them into beauty. "Weight" is her new book and I read it two weeks ago in an evening. In it she retells the story of Atlas and Heracles but its the ending I absolutely love!!!

Yes, I AM A SUCKER FOR DOGS! So, all I will tell you is that there is a dog towards the end and the event that takes place melts my heart and lifts all the weight of my bad day off my shoulders. At least I am not Atlas!
