Right now I\'m reading \"Nudge\" by Richard H. Thaler and Cass R. Sunstein.

These two learned men are the superheroes of a movement known as libertarian paternalism, which is nowhere near as pompous or dull as it sounds. It simply means using “choice architecture” to nudge people—and, therefore, societies—to make good decisions about everything from health care to personal finance.

The problem is that it\'s a thinking book and I\'m not in the mood for that right now.

Okay, so after 1984, I had to read Heart of Darkness by whatshisface Conrad. (Joseph? Yes, lets go with Joseph). Worst book ever. EVER!

Now I have to read Persepolis - The Story of a Childhood by Marjane Satrapi.

When I am finally able to read what I want, I plan on reading Push/Precious by Sapphire.

Under the Dome by Stephen King. So far it's pretty damned amazing.

Flapper: A Madcap Story of Sex, Style, Celebrity, and the Women Who Made America Modern by Joshua Zeit

I just finished that book and it was totally entertaining. Great grandmaw was a wild-child. The sexual revolution started way before the 1960's.

Rich Dad, Poor Dad

It teaches people to turn their income into assets. Wish I have read this book before I was in college.

It's never to late to get better financially.

I've heard that book is good but I haven't read it yet.

I finally finished the Sarah Palin book and I'm glad. Not worth the trouble and disappointing.

I give it a C- but only because I'm a kind person.

I'm currently reading a book entitled "Island of Hope, Island of Tears." It's about Immigrants who came to America through Ellis Island in the late 19th and early 20th Century. So far it's pretty interesting

Sounds like my kind of book, I love that period of our history. Right now I'm reading a book by John Waters. Producer, director writer of movies, he's a strange man.

I didn't say nothing about him. Just posted that I started reading a book about Pearl Harbor but I had a hard time getting into it at the time and wasn't able to wipe away my post, so I had delete it the way you see it there.

But I started reading a mystery by Carol Higgins Clark today called Wrecked. So far it's pretty interesting.
