Hey. This is what I’m reading. I may or may not write about any of these on the blog—if I do, I’ll link to them. And realize, please, that reading a book does not mean that I’m endorsing it as a whole or any of the ideas in it. There’s any number of reasons I might be reading a book (I do realize, however, that reading gives legitimacy of a sort… but that’s another discussion). If I haven’t written about a book—or even if I have—and you have questions or want my recommendation, please drop me a line. I love to talk about books.
