Sunday Stuff

Non-Food Stuff:

I generally don't gravitate towards non-fiction. It's not that I dislike the genre, I'd just rather get lost in an imaginary world. With that said, Quiet: The Power of Introverts in a World That Can't Stop Talking, is one of the best books I've read lately. Well, okay, ignore the "lately" part. I haven't been reading much, but that's besides the point. This is a really fascinating book. Page-turning. Even if you aren't an introvert, read this book to learn more about the introvert in your life.

And while you're at it, you should probably read about Caring for Your Introvert. Funny stuff.

This would not appeal to me at all if it wasn't on a top 100 list and if it didn't have "secret" in the title. I am apparently a sucker for "secrets" and lists. via The Wednesday Chef
