It’s been awhile since I have actually taken a book out and read it…a book other than 50 Shades of Grey that is. Maybe it’s the cold weather and warm blankets that are putting me in a more scholarly mood.
I forgot how much I like books and adding to my collection. There is just something about holding a hard cover book and smelling the pages that a kindle or iPad just can replace. Sorry hubs, my book hoarding continues with these new additions:
Anna Karenina by Leo Tolstoy
I am a sucker for aristocratic stories. Now that this is a movie with Miss Kiera Knightley I want to read the book before the movie. Now lets see if I can get through all these pages.
By Invitation Only: How we Built Gilt and Changed the Way Millions Shopped
Gilt is a nonstop inspiration board for me. I love the story, I love their model, and I love the way they present their ideas from the goofy tech side of Gilt http://tech.gilt.com/ to they way they update the look and feel of their site. Oh and high end fashion is involved – enough said
I had the chance to listen to Susan speak at a conference i attended in Boston a few months ago, and the power this quiet little introvert brought was amazing. I came back sharing ideas and advocating to make our offices more conducive to all types introverts and extroverts! I can’t wait to read this.
I am so excited about my husbands new website design at zingsale.com (price alert service for when things go on sale at Amazon) so make sure to check it out!
Oh and I got all 3 books, hardcover and new, for $18…thanks babe!
