I feel like at some point there will be a book that introduces women to the business world without 1) telling them "This book will allow you to be feminine and own a business!" or 2) "This book will allow you to be feminine and run a good business!"

The Winter Rose (The Tea Rose, #2)

I always find it really strange how agents and editors can shift a perception of a book from being "small" to "big." In this case, The Winter Rose is such a romance novel, a historical romance at that -- but it's way too long and doesn't have glitter...more

As Cool As I Am by Pete Fromm

This is one of my favorite books. I can't say enough about it -- while technically well written, it's the point of view of a young woman who worms her way through a confusing childhood into a confusing adulthood that really touched me. It's full of c...more

I liked this book a lot more than I thought I would. I mean, usually when a book is hyped up a lot my immediate reaction is to roll my eyes and wonder if it's worth the hype (I didn't start reading the Harry Potter series until the third one was alre...more

So I'm a huge huge huge Phantom Tollbooth fan, and I like that quirky, academic feel that some books get where there is learning to be had and the characters all seem to be doin' the teachin' --- I don't know why I took the "g"s out... it felt right,...more

There is something really beautiful about an author who is in control of their craft -- It's hard enough to plot a successful story that is intriguing, but to be able to manipulate the chronology of a story and make the story even better? (This is on...more

I liked this book - not a whole lot of brand new information, but a lot of "new"ish information put together in an easy-to-read and easier-to-understand kind of way. Plus, I know and love the authors -- so it's hard for me not to know and love the bo...more

I'm a huge fan of Fast Company, but this book felt a little too ADD to me. Which sucks, because I'm totally buying what they are selling. I feel like the first three or four paragraphs of each chapter (with a couple sprinkled through out) were right...more
