Need something to read today?

Random pics found on my phone.
Something is slightly off about this picture, and yet I love it. (My nephews at the funeral.)

Random things you see near my house- wild turkeys. Sometimes incorrectly called a hokie.

What's on my bookshelf right now-

Bay and Her Boys: Unexpected Lessons I Learned as a Single Mom by Bay Buchanan. I worked for Bay while I was taking a break from college. She has been a huge influence on me politically and professionally. And my family loves to call her a good friend! She is a political expert that can regularly be found as a "talking head" on CNN, Fox, and others. She's also currently a spokesperson for the Romney Campaign. Her book is about raising three sons as a single mother, being LDS (from a Catholic family), and her very public and challenging career. I can't wait to dig in to this book!


Hello Life by Kristen Marie. Another book written by a friend! Kristen and I were friends back in Utah (and still are). She's a fabulous writer and editor. This book is a memoir of her journey as a single woman and mother through dating and coming in to her own regarding her beliefs and religion. She was the editor and compiler of Don't Forget the Pepper Spray, a book I had the fun of contributing to.

 I'm reading both books on my Nook. Don't you just love e-books?

I also recently read The Book of Mormon Girl: Stories from an American Faith by Joanna Brooks. It is an easy read I finished in just a few hours. Her book may irk and annoy some Mormons, I found it interesting. I found much to relate to, and yet really want to emphasize that she's not like most Mormons.

If you are looking for a short, quick, and informative read, check out my Motley Fool blog piece about how the Facebook IPO could really change investing. If you don't understand what that means, you should definitely read the piece! Because you are exactly the type of person I think could potentially be changed!

Now, if you'll excuse me, I have a wedding to attend!
