From time to time, I come across a blog entry or a discussion thread that ends with a one-line statement or tagline informing the reader about what the writer is currently listening to. Nothing wrong with this, to be sure, but I think that what a person is reading will tell you far more about them than what music they are listening to or what movies they most recently watched.
This year alone I have read many interesting thought-provoking and sometimes disturbing books, including…
- So Many Enemies, So Little Time : An American Woman in All the Wrong Places by Elinor Burkett
- The World Is Flat: A Brief History of the Twenty-first Century by Thomas L. Friedman
- The Millionaire Next Door: The Surprising Secrets of America’s Wealthy by Thomas J. Stanley
- Wild at Heart: Discovering the Secret of a Man’s Soul by John Eldredge
- Eats, Shoots & Leaves: The Zero Tolerance Approach to Punctuation by Lynne Truss
You’re probably thinking that I only read books that have a colon in the title, so I will add Who Moved My Cheese? by Spencer Johnson to the list.
Often I will read several books at once… typically there is a book on the treadmill that I read while working out; sometimes there is another book on my bedside table, with several older books on my PDA in e-book format.
That said, this is not about blowing my own trumpet or going on an ego rampage. While the links are to Amazon, most are available at your local library.
Any road up, from here on out, I will be ending my scribblings with a “Now reading…” message.
That is all.
- Empire of Debt: The Rise of an Epic Financial Crisis by William Bonner and Addison Wiggin
- The Millionaire Mind by Thomas J. Stanley
- The Autobiography of Ben Franklin (e-book)
