The $100 Startup by Chris Guillebeau. Chris is an online friend of mine and I was excited to take his newest book for a spin (I loved The Art of Non-Conformity when I read it a few years ago). This book is a collection of interesting case-studies, peppered with fantastic no-nonsense small business advice. It's exactly the sort of book I should have read in college. (Confession - I LOVED reading case studies in my business classes. Second confession - I would love to go back to college and take "entrepreneur" classes - but for no grades.)
Vanity Fair magazine. Not sure what's going on, but this magazine I have subscribed to for the past year is really nailing it right now. Love the long articles that take over an hour to read. That's how magazines should be. I want a magazine that helps me forget where I am. Recently I was fascinated with the article in the May issue about the Costa Concordia cruise ship that sunk and the long "Friends - 10 years later" oral history interview. (BTW - how has Friends been off the air for TEN YEARS?! oops! Just EIGHT YEARS. But still...) I am so looking forward to diving into the June issue (with Marilyn on the cover) this weekend.
Divergent & Insurgent by Veronica Roth. Books 1 and 2 of a young adult dystopian trilogy. (Think Hunger Games.) I read these on the recommendation of Kayla Aimee and totally fell through them. Super easy reads, but still well-written, interesting and action packed.
On deck :
Sunset magazine. Signing up for a subscription after paging through a few issues.
Any suggestions for fun fiction books I should check out? I've heard great things about the Art of Fielding...
