I'm reading 'Methland' by: Nick Reding. So far, I'm unimpressed. It's hardly engaging. It does give facts about what meth can do to small towns. However, I've read two chapters so far and just can't get into it. I will try again to read what I feel is an overly descriptive, "know it all" book. Maybe the rest of the book is more productive than the begining.

I think when it comes 2 meth a book is kinda putting a little 2 much work in 2 what can be said in a sentence, " Meth is bad".

had some flying to do this past weekend, finished Tom Stanley's The Millionaire Next Door and Dave Ramsey's More Than Enough. Both good reads in my opinion, More Than Enough was not much different from Dave Ramsey's Financial Peace though. Moving on to Tom Stanley's The Millionaire Mind. I will be getting off this money/financial kick shortly and moving on to other subjects...not that I've exhausted all there is in the money/financial area...

The Millionaire Mind and the Millionaire Next Door were great reads.

Finished "Up in the Air" this morning - on a plane, of course. For once, I liked the movie better than the book. Some funny lines in it, though.

Just finished reading Going Rogue (Sarah Palin). All politics aside, it was interesting to hear about rural alaska and the way political campaigns handle the candidates.

Recently finished Niall Ferguson's The Ascent of Money. Great book. I'm currently reading Naomi Klein's The Shock Doctrine. Equally as good.
