Last week I saw Mary Roach read from her latest, BONK: The Curious Couple of Science and Sex. And, wow! Not only is she great to see live, I feel like she's in my house relating her adventures as I read the book. I saw her at the Booksmith, which is where I always seem to end up because they host such a great series. And though I did not stay for erotic cake and champagne, I did manage to get a signed copy of BONK. I'm already looking forward to her next book, whatever the topic. If you get a chance to see her read, by all means take it. The experience is as enjoyable as it is educational.
