nice graphics in a kids book.
Children’s books are often among the finest feats of storytelling — beautifully designed, illustrated and art-directed, they use simple narratives and metaphors to convey complex ideas and lifelong lessons. That’s certainly the case with Eli, No! — a heart-stoppingly delightful new children’s book by Katie Kirk, one half of husband-and-wife illustration and design duo Eight Hour Day, telling the story of their lovable yet mischievous dog named Eli. Throughout Eli’s many adventures and misadventu

Truman - David McCullough. Have read the book and listened to audio version more than once and just may have been known to put this on in the background while my kids are working on projects. McCullough's voice is great for sharing the story of the man from Independence.

Historian and Pulitzer-Prize-winning author David McCullough tells one of the greatest American stories of the life and times of the thirty-third President of the United States, Harry S. Truman.
By David McCullough: Truman
David McCullough's 1992 biography of Harry Truman, America's 33rd President, won the Pulitzer Prize and remains one of the finest books I've ever read. To be sure McCullough is not a scholarly writer, but his approachable prose opens up history to his readers and gives the reader a sense of what Truman accomplished as President.
A superb book covering WW I, the New Deal, Korea, the Cold War, the A-bomb and Truman himself.

How people shop
Why We Buy: The Science Of Shopping by Paco Underhill. Very interesting book...
This book taught me so much about why people buy. I tell consultants that you have to go and watch people in their environment if you really want to find out what they do. Pacco Underhill did just this. His observations about people in stores are devastatingly accurate. Curiously, he doesn't take his own advice about the internet. He gives meaningless and shallow opinions on that topic. Go figure. Genius in one area, opinionated but inaccurate in another. Hmmm. I wonder if I...
A Visit from the Goon Squad by Jennifer Egan I wish I could write this well. The chapter written as a powerpoint presentation has stayed with me months later (heads up - I was told to read this novel in actual book vs. e-book form because of this chapter and it was good counsel.)

I loved this book. I was never a Rob Lowe fan, grew up with him more or less (age wise). Watched all the movies that he made when I was younger but never thought much about him. After reading this book and hearing his story it was like wow, I really like him. He is well spoken, intelligent, very articulate and funny! He is not just another pretty face.
Stories I Only Tell My Friends Would not have picked this up, but after being prompted to do so by three dissimilar friends (who don't know each other!) found myself cruising through it. A smooth and very human read.

The Fates Will Find Their Way: A Novel by Hannah Pittard, http://www.amazon.com/dp/B0042FZVS0/ref=cm_sw_r_pi_dp_j9voub1JFAY8C
The Fates Will Find Their Way by Hannah Pittard. A group of men reflect on how the disappearance of 16-year-old Nora Lindell affected and continues to affect their understanding of themselves. The book is not bad but suffers from the inevitable comparison to The Virgin Suicides. 3 stars.
Okay, so my niece wrote this book- but it is fantastic and I want it to be the first on my "Books Worth Reading" list.
"Whenever you feel like criticizing any one...just remember that all the people in this world haven't had the advantages that you've had." - F. Scott Fitzgerald, The Great Gatsby, Ch. 1 When I was in school, I kicked off every summer vacation by rereading this book. It may be time to restart that tradition and I am curious what my take away will be this time...

Robert Redford as Jay Gatsby ~ The Great Gatsby 1974 ~ Costumes designed by 3 time Tony award winner Theoni V. Aldredge
Yeah yeah yeah, I know I'm a far cry from Robert Redford, but I love the classical style of his wardrobe from the 1974 version of THE GREAT GATSBY. Theoni V. Aldredge won an Oscar for her costume design (though Ralph Lauren is credited with the men's fashions--Theoni's design?). Theoni designed the wardrobe for a B'way production of Gore Vidal's THE BEST MAN I did in 2000. I still have one of the suits made especially for that show which she designed.

Patti Smith: JUST KIDS. The new memoir by the seminal rock poet, which details her early days in New York City in the late sixties/early seventies, and the deep and tumultuous relationship she had with the notorious artist and photographer Robert Mapplethorpe. This beautifully written book successfully conjures up the fascinating mixture of innocence and groundbreaking art that they shared, first together, and then with the world. Highly recommended!

The Ground Beneath Her Feet by Salman Rushdie. Just once in my life I would like to be able to write a paragraph as well as Rushdie. There are descriptions with "staying power" in this book that imprint themselves upon your brain, coming to mind months, seasons, years later.

“Our lives disconnect and reconnect, we move on, and later we may again touch one another, again bounce away. This is the felt shape of a human life, neither simply linear nor wholly disjunctive nor endlessly bifurcating, but rather this bouncey-castle sequence of bumpings-into and tumblings-apart.” ― Salman Rushdie, The Ground Beneath Her Feet
