the bookworm 13

i've just added a few new books to my book list. just a few. it's gonna be a long {literary} summer.

all things slow:
01. beyond 9 to 5: your life in time by sarah norgate
02. the age of speed: learning how to thrive in a more-faster-now world by vince poscente {yes, i know this seems interesting given my slow living penchant, but i like to know what's going on in The Other Camp if for no other reason than for informational purposes}

green, green, and green. (and a bit slow too):
03. the world without us by alan weisman
04. deep economy: the wealth of communities and the durable future by bill mckibben
05. cradle to cradle: remaking the way we make things by william mcdonough & michael braungart
06. building the green economy: success stories from the grassroots by kevin danaher


for pensive digestion:
07. the omnivore's dilemma by michael pollan
08. in defense of food by michael pollan

09. stuffed and starved by raj patel.

indulgences:
10. little cakes from the whimsical bakehouse by kaye & liv hansen
11. barefoot contessa at home by ina garten

everybody needs a little fiction in their lives:
12. in her shoes by jennifer weiner
13. the birth of venus by sarah dunant

Good lord, what a fabulous reading list you have going there! So many I've never even heard of! Will you keep us posted on how these books go, and whether you'd recommend them? Also, I REALLY need to put In Her Shoes on my list this summer!

i'll most definitely keep you posted ... provided i can afford to purchase all of these books. it may take a while, but damn it, i'll get 'er done!

i'm super excited for in her shoes. AND i just bought eat pray love, so i should remember to tack that on to my list as well.

I watched Raj Patel on The Hour a few months back. He was talking about his book and I'd like to read it too!

You'll like eat pray love! It made me laugh, and cry, and go "aww, I completely understand!"

mike - you can have it after i'm done with it. or you can buy it and i'll borrow it. i'm not picky. ;)

julia - i think every female on the face of the earth has read it by this point, so i feel like it's time i catch myself up!
