I’m late posting this as I haven’t been home all afternoon and I didn’t have anything to post until tonight anyways.

While looking through my Bookreporter newsletter I came across two books that I would like to read which doesn’t happen often.

The Widows of Eastwick by John Updike

More than three decades have passed since the events described in John Updike’s THE WITCHES OF EASTWICK. The three divorcées — Alexandra, Jane and Sukie — have left town, remarried and become widows. They cope with their grief and solitude as widows do: they travel the world, to such foreign lands as Canada, Egypt, and China, and renew old acquaintances. Why not, Sukie and Jane ask Alexandra, go back to Eastwick for the summer?

Clothing Optional: And other ways to read these stories by Alan Zweibel
In this diverse collection, former “Saturday Night Live” writer Alan Zweibel generously shares his wry worldview. From nudity to Little League baseball to his youthful passion for a certain female Biblical character, you’ll enjoy the few hours you spend with this gently humorous Everyman.
