Here’s my book pile this month. I started with 48 Days to the Work You Love. The career coach who wrote it is a friend of Dave Ramsey’s, and since I was at loose ends after learning law school wasn’t in my immediate future, I ordered this for inspiration.
Don’t laugh. As I told Derek, at least I’m doing something instead of moping around.
The irony is, after filling out all the questions and charting my goals and all that career book jazz, I came full circle. Apparently, I am meant to be a writer.
My dad talked me into ordering The Elements of Typographic Style. Now I can be as snobby as he is. (Kidding, dad.)
Ignore Everybody is a gem of a book that I like to page through when I need to get my creative engine running again. A lot of the points are “duh,” but they bear reminding, and the author is sarcastically funny.
Did you notice the two versions of The Age of Innocence in the photo? The paperback is real. The hardcover is my Christmas gift from my sister Trina:
Pretty cool, isn’t it? I love it. When she asked awhile ago about my favorite classic book, I had a hard time choosing just one. But this one is up there, and after I got her gift I decided I might as well re-read it.
And finally, that cute little boy in the corner of the books photo? Yeah, he’s mine, too. But he stays behind the gate because his favorite thing to do in my office is mix my files together.
