I miss the "what book are you reading" thread I started, so thought I'd start another one. Last five books you read or are reading. I'll go first.

1. The Language of Baklava by Diana Abu-Jaber

2. Everything You Need to Know to Feel Go(o)d by Candace Pert

3. The Great Failure: A Bartender, A Monk and My Unlikely Path To Truth by Natalie Goldberg

4. Nourishing Traditions: The Cookbook that Challenges Politically Correct Nutrition and the Diet Dictocrats by Sally Fallon

5. A Place to Stand: The Making of a Poet by Jimmy Santiago Baca

Not sure what is next as I keep re-reading that book over and over...

I just started The Long Tail.

Recent reads:
"The Tipping Point"
All of the "Jack Reacher" novels by Lee Childs (brain candy,
but yummy)
"Setting the Table" by Danny Meyer
"The Great Gatsby" F. Scott Fitzgerald

On my table:
"Redefining Health Care" Porter and Teisberg
"The Fifth Discipline" Senge (a follow-up to "Learning to Eat Soup with a Knife" about learning organizations)

And finally..."On Bull*****" by Harry G. Frankfurt ( a certifiable philosophy heavyweight!), a very thin book on just what you think
:lol:

These are fun, Yael. Thanks.

Ha, triathlon books do tend to say the same thing and are definately not as captivating as CF articles. I haven't started CF yet, but have been on this website "browsing" for at least an hour a day for the last week or so. Is there a race you are training for?
