I’ve had a bit of extra reading time over the past couple of days as I’ve mostly been stuck in a jury waiting room. I didn’t really think about my reading choice for the first day of jury duty; I just grabbed a book from my library stack. How was I to know that I’d grabbed a road trip novel that typifies a wandering spirit on a day when I was confined to an underground room? Despite the circumstances, I did enjoy the story. And I had plenty of time to read it. ;)
Let’s Get Lost had several elements that I tend to like in a book. It was a feel-good story of self discovery with a little bit of romance. Not to mention a connection to the Twin Cities and references to music I like.
To celebrate a cute book and getting through my first two days of jury duty, I thought I’d share a musical connection to the book. Here is Neutral Milk Hotel’s “Oh Comely,” which has a small but significant place in the story:
As a side note, when I got home from my day of jury duty during which I finished this book, my partner had Neutral Milk Hotel playing. Weird, right? I bring this up because I just read a book that focused on coincidences, and I’m seeing them everywhere these days. If feel-good road trip romances aren’t your thing, maybe the thought-provoking suspense of She is Not Invisible is more your style.
Either way, don’t forget your book if you have jury duty.
