I love to read. Well, I love to read non-fiction. Fiction for me is harder – harder to get into, harder to relate to, and harder to finish. But I just can’t seem to have too many non-fiction books. Especially if those books relate to psychology, organizational development, business, entrepreneurship, women’s professional development, etc. I know, it sounds riveting, but it is what I like.

Anyhow, last Thursday, when I was given three book recommendations (completely unprompted) by interesting smart women, I paid attention! These suggestions prompted me to start my summer reading book list.

So, the first three on my list are:

Bitch in the House:26 Women Tell the Truth About Sex, Solitude, Work, Motherhood, and Marriage, by Cathi Hanauer.

Recommended by Jessica Shambora

**Supposedly very funny and entertaining, and I just love compilations - 26 professional writers collaborated on this one! This book also has a dedicated
website with lots of good info on it.

Basic Black:The Essential Guide for Getting Ahead at Work (and in Life), by Cathie Black. Recommended by Meredith Barnett, of Store Adore.

**Considering that Cathie Black is the president of Hearst Magazines & one of the first women to take a major role in American newspaper and magazine publishing, she probably knows what it takes!

You’re Wearing That?:Understanding Mothers and Daughter in Conversation, by Deborah Tannen. Also recommended by Jessica Shambora
**This book doesn't need its subtitle. Any woman who hears the title knows what it is about. Tannen is a best-selling author & renowned Georgetown professor who studies human interaction through conversation.

Happy Reading to me! Ill let you know my thoughts and add other books as they get added to the list!
