Five Things I'm Reading Now

Five Things I'm Reading Now
Books and links, books and links. Windows to the past, clarity for the present.

1. Lots of Candles, Plenty of Cake, by Anna Quindlen. It is a rare writer who can make you love her writing, even when you disagree with virtually all of her basic tenants on life. Quindlen communicates the human experience like no other writer of our time. In my opinion.

2. Tribes, by Seth Godin. Who do we follow and why?

3. How Michael Pollan Misuses Journalist Power. Enough said. But if anything has ever made you angry about the GMO debate, this may top it.

4. Little House on the Prairie, with my littlest. It's a classic. It makes us imagine. And think. And be grateful for indoor plumbing and carpet and glass windows.

Image design by Erin Ehnle, Keeping It Real: Through the Lens of a Farm Girl. She is talented and wonderful!

5. Motherless Daughters, by Hope Edelman. Insight. And a look at how present-day relationships are defined by past losses.
