This week, Stasha asked us to find funny pictures online. Since I know I have a few doozies floating out there, I wussed out and went with the last ten books on my Kindle.
1. The Tipping Point, Malcolm Gladwell. The hair alone slays me. Digging into his book REALLY captivates me. The gist: This book describes how little things can affect big changes.
2. Lean In, Sheryl Sandberg. I wanted to like this book after seeing her Ted Talk but…Women of Color have been leaning in longer than Ms Sandberg realizes.
3. Easy Spanish Step-By-Step, Barbara Bregstein. I probably STILL wouldn’t know much more Spanish than I know now, but this book has been quite helpful with the influx of Ecuadorians I have seen lately.
4. The Power of Habit: Why We Do What We Do in Life and Business, Charles Duhigg. Guess who is trying to quit smoking once again…
5. Half the Sky, Nicholas D. Kristof and Sheryl WuDunn. A difficult to read book, but one that helps me see the world in less than rosy American views.
6. The Power of Style, Bobbie Thomas. I really need to freshen up my wardrobe.
7. Hamlet, William Shakespeare. Because I never really read it when I was supposed to.
8. Ulysses, James Joyce. My kid read it, so I figured I could plow through it as well.
9. Coming Clean, Kimberly Rae Miller. A story about growing up the child of a Hoarder.
10. A Tale of Two Cities, Charles Dickens. Another one I never read when I was supposed to.
