It only took me one week to be two days late for my own weekly project. This bodes well.
On My Nightstand
Lean In: Women, Work, and the Will to Lead
I bought this book about 3 months ago, right before life got super crazy. I set it (and everything else) aside. Brittany and I were talking about it recently and she inspired me to pick it back up. Oh my gosh. You may have caught my Twitter ravings as I blew through the first third of the book.
Let's just say I got my soapbox out more than once. I don't get fired up about many things, but women in leadership is one thing guaranteed to get me going.
I peer pressured Lisa into ordering the book so we can talk about it. I was jonesing for the perspective of another woman in a field dominated by men. If you've read it and would like to get in on that conversation, maybe we can set up a Google+ hangout and chat. Girl power, solidarity, all that jazz.
The American Heiress
I have admitted on many occasions that I don't read much fiction. I have a bad habit of going back to novels I've known and loved, but it is uncommon for me to seek out new works of fiction. But a friend whose taste I respect was raving about this and it was on sale at Target so...
Thoughts to come later.

Getting to 50/50 & Cinderella Ate My Daughter
If a book I'm loving mentions a book, I want to read it. That's one of the biggest contributors to my little problem.
Lisa and I have been blog friends for years now. She's a fellow francophile, book lover, and she's recently found herself a northerner relocated to the south. I might know something about that.
