Sweet and Vicious by David Schickler
My latest running while reading audio book. Since my teaching colleague Kim has decided I should runa half-marathon with her in November, I have started doing longer runs to see how far this old body can go. Twice in the past week I have run over 7 miles. That means an hour of book!! I am really enjoying this funny book by David Schickler. I had read his collection of short stories, Kissing in Manhattan, a few years back. This book is the story of a jewel thief/thug named Henry Dante who crosses paths with a young, born-again Christian woman who is saving herself for the right man. She convinces him he is the one, but first they must marry and dispose of the jewels. I am laughing out loud.
