all i want for christmas is

Books!   Typical, you might think, unless you’ve known me my whole life.  Just since 2012 new year’s resolutions, have I been truly committing myself to read books widely, deeply  and in desperate seeking to live better to my profession and to communicate more truthfully.  I’ve got a list started of some that I’m really interested in or that have come to me as recommendations.  My hope is to plan more deliberately for my 2013 resolutions.

Here’s the twist —  I suggest, if you are so inclined to buy me a Christmas gift, that instead you actually by yourself a book you’ve really been wanting and lend it to me for Christmas and my 2013 resolutions. Or if you are not inclined to buy me a Christmas gift, please offer a recommendation in the comments.  I’m still refining my preferences, but as the items below may suggest, I do like all kinds of biographies and interesting revelations from science.   I also like photography, information design, a good novel, and in any of these areas — something that will make me laugh.

  1. Brown, Brene (2012). Daring Greatly.
  2. Melton, Glennon (2012). Carry on Warrior.
  3. Sullivan & Sharp (1990). Dashing Kansan. — got it already.
  4. Sister Magdalene. (). Conversations with Children. — got it already.
  5. Egan, Timothy. (2006). The Worst Hard Time.
  6. Eliot, Goerge (188?). Middlemarch: a study of provincial life. — got it already.
  7. Mathis, Ayana (2012).  Twelve Tribes of Hattie.
