What Are You Reading?

I have been on a book buying splurge since my recent visit to Powell's. I have read quite a few non-fiction and fiction books and yet I still have piles all around my computer. I am doing my best to pass books I have finished to others who will enjoy them or to the used bookstore. 

At the same time, I sent a copy of You're The Best by the Satellite Sisters to my satellite sister Carole. Surprise! She had the same idea and she sent me a copy! Very fun. 

I just finished Creativity Inc. by Ed Catmull with Amy Wallace.  I write more about this on Leader's Compass blog. I recommend this for people who are interested in how to create positive work cultures, and for anyone who enjoys Pixar animated movies, so that is everyone. 

I completed the fourth Mary Russell mystery, so number 5 O Jerusalem is next by Laurie R. King. I also have read more than half of Nadia Bolz-Weber's Accidental Saints. I really appreciate this perspective on following Christ. 

I am also enjoying more poetry, especially Billy Collins.

I also like gifting books. I am on my way to a baby shower and it is the Chinese Year of the Monkey, so I am giving the new mom Curious George and other monkey related books.

What are you reading? What have you given as a gift?
