Shelf Discovery

“If you would tell me the heart of a man, tell me not what he reads, but what he re-reads.”  - Francois Mauriac

I’ve read the following books probably more times than I can count.  They all hold a special place in my life for the reasons noted. 


For the love of language:

The Oxford English Dictionary 


Books that got all of American reading again:

Harry Potter series – JK Rowling 

Twilight saga – Stephenie Meyer


When I first really began to read and appreciate fiction:

The Lovely Bones and The Almost Moon – Alice Sebold


The first book I read after college graduation:

All I Ever Really Need to Know I Learned in Kindergarten – Robert Fulghum


All about style and authenticity…understanding what “classic” means:

Style / Occasions / Manners – Kate Spade

The Style Strategy / The Little Black Book of Style / The One Hundred / The Look Book – Nina Garcia


Because I am nothing else if I’m not a “list maker”:

To Do List – Shasa Cagen


The most brilliant book:

Orbiting the Giant Hairball – Gordon MacKenzie


The book I’ve read the most times:

Eat, Pray, Love – Elizabeth Gilbert


To understand the joys of introversion:

Party of One; The Loners Manifesto – Anneli Rufus

Quiet – Susan Cain


My absolute favorite book of quotes:

Life:  Selected Quotations – Paulo Coelho


[This is by no means a complete list of my favorite works.  And it does not reflect any business books that I would find useful, foundational, or compelling.  I just get asked, “what are you reading” so often, that I’ve tried to list those books that speak the loudest in my life.]
