Sitting in my to be read pile I have: (in no particular order)
The Good, The Bad, and the Uncanny by Simon R. Green
One for My Baby by Tony Parsons
The Runaway Jury by John Grisham
Great Expectations by Charles Dickens (about half way through)
Single in Suburbia by Wendy Wax (my Friday read)
Queen of Hearts by Heather Graham
Before You Quit Your Job by Robert T. Kiyosaki (reread)
Magic Lost, Trouble Found by Lisa Shearin
Kiplinger’s September 2011 issue (for the gym)
1001 Arabian Knights (though I’ve subconciously misplaced it half way through)
かりん and ああっ女神さまっ(Slowly making myself practice translating again)
How to be a Complete Jack Ass by Jeff Packer
Why am I announcing this you ask? Because I agree with author Rob W. Hart, VP of Novel Publicity that reading out of your comfort zone is important. See his blog post here: http://is.gd/rBO96c
Most of those on the list are fiction (yeah-yeah not that far out of my comfort zone), but at least it’s not all fantasy which is what I tend to read since that is what I write. Two of them are finance related because frankly, I don’t want to be a starving artist, which is why I have a “safe” degree even though I secretly harbored the desire to be an art major.
As for the financial material, I think it important for everyone to have a basic idea of their own finances. We have a staggering divorse rate which means both partners need to know the financial situation, how to balance a budget, and for the Kiosaki book, what you need to know before you quit your day job to chase a dream.
What’s on your TBR list?
