Title: What Once We Loved
Author: Jane Kirkpatrick

The author is a wonderful writer intertwining many “mini” stories together. The story helps understand the hardships in the West with Indians and Chinese, and also just what people endured and lived.

The characters were well written & the story took me places I had never been. The elephant was wonderful!

The Invention of Everything Else by Samantha Hunt is an intriguing book. Nikola Tesla, dreams, time travel, electricity, what might have been, facts and fiction – all woven together with Hunt’s very beautiful writing. It’s thought-provoking but easy and fun to read.

Title: The World is Flat
Author: Thomas Friedman

This is a very interesting book giving a world view on how gobalization, technology, free trade, outsourcing, etc. is changing how we do business and how we operate as a society. It has me wondering what life will be like for our kids in 10, 20, or 30 years.
