The Internet’s leading authority on radicalized geese

Two parallel stacks of books on blue backgroundNow that I have copious amounts of time on my hands, I’m doing what I did the last time I suddenly had copious amounts of time on my hands – reading all the books ever!

Since finishing school, I’ve read one complete book (The Bridge to Teribithia – which I read for the book club that my friend Shalu just started), started two other books (Ender’s Game and A Short History of Nearly Everything) and nearly completed another book (Born to Run). To give you a sense of how bad my ability to read for fun has been while I’ve been in school, Sarah and Dave gave me Born to Run TWO Christmases ago, and I’ve only now gotten around to reading it! I also started reading Thinking, Fast and Slow near the end of the summer, as it was a recommended book on the syllabus for my Internet Marketing class (and it sounded super interesting), but once my classes, including Internet Marketing, started, I didn’t have time to finish it. So I’ll get back to that soon!

As I’ve now returned to the land of reading things other than textbooks and Harvard Business Review articles1, I also finally gotten around to joining Good Reads, where I will track all the stuff that I’m reading because in addition to loving to read, I love to track things! So you can friend me over there is you want to follow my reading adventures, which you totally know you want to.

    Bridge to Teribithia is one of most favorite books EVER!

    I’d never heard of it before, but Shalu read it a long time ago and really liked it, so she chose it for our book club. It was awesome!

    “Bridge” is wonderful but so sad! I read it in grade school and loved it. I also adore Bryson – his travel stuff is amazing, and his book “Home” is also a winner.

    How did you like “Born to Run”?

    It’s really good! He’s an excellent writer and all the different stories are compelling. You never know where the book is going to go next!
