Our aspirations are wrapped up in books.

Today ..err yesterday-at Kelly's Korner it's "Show Us Your Life-What's your reading list?"

I'm reading a few books right now and just finished one so I'll share those :-)

1. Moneyball


I always keep a book at my parents when I spend the night so it takes me a while to finish them, but this is my newest one. I've been meaning to read it for a while (my dad got it when it came out and that was like 5+ years ago lol) but it's about how the Oakland A's changed baseball with the way they draft players-not looking at normal stats like batting average, but rather things like on base percentage. So far I really like it-it's a pretty perfect spring book...I get to watch baseball and read about it :-)

2. The Happiness Project

I also keep a book at work to read on my lunch break. I've been reading this one lately and I love it. It's about a woman who decided she wanted to be happier and set monthly goals for herself like boosting energy and making time for friends. It's been really interesting to see who she went about it and I've been putting some of the things she learned in to practice in my own life as well.

3. How to Be Good

I just finished this not too long ago and even though it took me a while to get through it, I ended up enjoying it. Nick Hornby is a really good writer and this was interesting. It coincided with me doing some thinking about what it meant to be good, so it definitely brought up some thoughts about human nature and what being good is all about.
