Show and Tell
About a month ago Nick Norelli was trying to get everyone to post pictures of the books they’ve been reading. My problem is that I have my books everywhere, so no place in particular is very indicative of my current reading list. But last night I organized my office (i.e. a desk and some bookshelves in the corner of our unfinished basement). The stack at the front of my desk is as telling as anything. Plus it’s always fun to look at books.
