one good book — FREEDOM by Jonathan Franzen.  this is the author who wrote THE CORRECTIONS.  same careful observation of families and neighborhoods, same knockout metaphors.  describing the introverted neighborhood girl who steals heart and sexual innocence of Patty’s prized child Joey, Franzen writes:  “She was a very patient girl, she had the metabolism of a fish in winter.”

two good songs — COUNTRY STRONG, sung by Gwyneth Paltrow; ME AND TENNESSEE, duet b/w Paltrow and Tim McGraw.  these songs are from upcoming movie starring same two.  i have no idea whether the movie is any good.  but i was floored by Paltrow’s vocals.  the manner, delivery and feeling are genuine, especially on cheating-heart duet w/ McGraw.
