My First Tag
Even though I've been blogging for several years now, I'm still a bit of a novice when it comes to the online community.
It appears I've been "tagged" by Moi at Single's Rant.
I guess I'm supposed to share some info with everyone. Specifically, what I've been reading these days.
Ok, well, here goes! The books I'm reading now are:
Cardozo by Andrew L. Kaufman - An amazing book about the amazingest judge ever. He was my idol when I was in law school. I love him.
Strapped: Why America's 20-and-30-Somethings Can't Get Ahead by Tamara Draut - An eye-opening book about how society has changed so that Generations X and Y can no longer afford the middle-class lives that our parents did.
How to Win Friends and Influence People by Dale Carnegie - Someone gave me this book years ago, and I'm finally getting around to reading it. Full of good nuggets and age-old wisdom.
Bait and Switch: The (Futile) Pursuit of the American Dream by Barbara Ehrenreich - Following up on the success of her earlier expose Nickel and Dimed: On (Not) Getting By in America (in which she worked as a minimum wage worker for several months), the author has now gone "undercover" as a white collar worker looking for a job. Another commentary on the disappearing middle class. Fascinating.
I've been reading these books during my morning and evening commutes on the train.
Wow..looking at this list, I now understand why my bag has been so heavy! #
