Inspiration through books

Wednesday, March 31, 2010

I love getting inspired through the pages of a book. Here are a few recent ones that wanted to pass along...

The Omnivore's Dilemma -- You'll never look at food the same way. A fascinating book that describes how food is made in America.

Three Cups of Tea -- Greg Mortenson is amazing and I think what he's doing for education in Pakistan is wonderful.

Stones into Schools -- This is Greg's follow-up book detailing the schools he helped build in Afghanistan.

Other books on my reading list include McEwan's Solar, Salwen's The Power of Half, McPhee's Silk Parachute, and Franzen's upcoming Freedom.

Check 'em out at your bookstore, library, Kindle, or iPad. :-)
