What I Read

I read way too much non-fiction, which makes me think, but I am trying to reform.  When I read fiction, I usually read pop bestsellers from the 'giants' such as Patterson, Baldacci, Grisham, Connelly, and their fellow mass-producers.  It's mindless entertainment, which relaxes me.  [If I need deep relaxation, I choose Dave Barry!]

I've been reading books, newspapers, and now magazines on my Amazon Kindle for about 3 years.  If you're into content consumption, it's awesome.  Content creation... not so much.  Think of the Apple iPad that way... I'll give that a careful look when version 2 hits the market.

I share info on my latest reads on my LinkedIn Reading's a link to the latest.
