I’ll Mature When I’m Dead: Dave Barry’s Amazing Tales of Adulthood by Dave Barry. Dave Barry can make me laugh out loud, which I think is a great skill. He has the pacing and word choice as if he were telling you rather than writing it for you.
The Bag Lady Papers: The Priceless Experience of Losing It All by Alexandra Penney. A book chosen on a whim. I wasn’t sure what to expect from it. It had it’s moments. The person lost a lot in the Bernie Madoff scandal and this was how she adjusted to life after that. It does help remind us that even if what we fear the most happens, we can overcome it. It can help one realize what is more important than money.
