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!
