Reading Invevitable Incompetence, by her dad, Dr. Saul William Seidman, at a little restuarant in Pacifica. Her dad is a retired neurosurgeon and the book is about how HMOs are controlling patient care, and not for the better. It was released two weeks ago.

Her favorite book of all time is The Phantom Tollbooth, written by Norton Juster and illustrated by Jules Feiffer. It's a modern fairytale quest story full of word play and is just really fun reading. Another favorite book--the children's classic Goodnight Moon, written by Margaret Wise Brown and illustrated by Clement Hurd....though she hasn't read it since her son was two.

The last book she read was Nickled and Dimed: On Not Getting By in America, by Barbara Ehrenreich, a book her son was reading--he's now in High School.
