Wild: From Lost to Found on the Pacific Crest Trail – Cheryl Strayed
Don’t be fooled by the Oprah Book Club sticker. While this is a book about the aftermath of a woman’s marriage falling apart, this is not another Eat, Pray, Love. Cheryl’s dark and gritty memoir will have you up reading until all hours of the night, as she recounts her time as an inexperienced backpacker hiking from California to Oregon. This book is being turned into a movie, and the actress Reese Witherspoon is getting lots of Oscar buzz. Read this book before the Academy awards her with another best actress nominee.
Edge of Eternity – Ken Follett
If you love a good epic, we highly recommend The Century Trilogy, where the author traces the history of the 20th Century via five families. The Edge of Eternity is the final book in the series and it captures the eras most of us know best, 1960-1990. At over 1000 pages, this is a great pick for a business trip of a week or more.
Yes Please – Amy Poehler
She made you laugh when she co-hosted the Golden Gloves, and in her first book, being released this fall, she’s guaranteed to have you laughing from start to finish. If you love Tina Fey’s Bossypants or Mindy Kaling’s Is Everyone Hanging Out Without Me, then you’re going to fall in love with Yes Please.
