Uncommon Grounds: The History of Coffee and How It Transformed Our World by Mark Pendergrast
Wonderful book about coffee. I highly recommend it!
How to Win Friends and Influence People by Dale Carnegie
Incredibly accurate. I try to read this annually.
The Nutcracker and the King of Mice by E.T.A. Hoffman
After seeing the ballet again, I decided to finally read the story. Pretty grotesque!
Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone by J. K. Rowling
Rereading this book was a treat! I’m glad I refreshed myself on the details before I saw the movie.
Mattimeo by Bryan Jacques
Another great book in the Redwall series.
Women of Influence, Women of Vision: A Cross-Generational Study of Leaders of Social Change by Helen S. Astin & Carole Leland
Not what I’d expected. I thought this was going to be a book on leadership. Instead, it was a book more on the history of the women’s movement in 20th century America. Did touch on leadership but not in a satisfying way.
