Books worth reading (First Edition)
I lean toward non~fiction.
- •Blood, Bones and Butter by Gabrielle HamiltonThe owner of Prune in NYC bares her soul in her autobiography.
- •The Tipping Point by Malcolm GladwellThe moment an idea, trend or social behavior crosses a threshold and spreads, it's referred to a a tipping point. Fascinating.
- •The Geography of Bliss by Eric WeinerPart travel, psychology and science but also funny. The author explores different countries to find what makes people happy.
- •Me Talk Pretty One Day by David SedarisHis very funny collection about moving to Paris.
- •Open by Andre AgassiA great memoir, especially if you grew up watching his tennis career.
- •The Four Agreements by Don Miguel RuizA must~read for anyone who appreciates self help books. I keep it on the nightstand.
- •A Walk in the Woods by Bill BrysonAn entertaining read about hiking the Appalachian Trail.
- •The Other Wes Moore by Wes MooreTrue story about two young boys who grew up in Baltimore within a year of each other and blocks apart, yet their lives took very different turns.
- •A Homemade Life by Molly WizenbergA memoir of loss and love and food. Recipes included.
- •Tender at the Bone by Ruth ReichlStart here, but read all of her books.
- •Let's Pretend This Never Happened by Jenny LawsonThen read the follow up Furiously Happy. She battles mental illness and is bravely bringing it to everyone's attention but manages to make you laugh out loud anyway.
- •Kitchen confidential by Anthony BourdainHis memoir of his time in a New York kitchen and what went on behind the scenes. If you are easily offended, do not read this!
