Reading List

My favorite books are those that change the way that I think about any given topic.  I’ve had my affairs with Russian Lit, magical realism, Greek philosophy, southern literature, and poetry.  The book recommendations below are based on my blog topics: business and food. I’ve tried to list them in order of their accessibility.

    you MUST MUST read Little Bets. You MUST! Seriously – order it right now. You’re doing yourself a disservice if you don’t. NOW.
    I’m currently reading Thinking Fast and Slow. It’s an interesting read and applies to business and business management.
