Books I've Read This Week

Quiet by Susan Cain is a great book for anyone who is an introvert (I am) or is the parent of an introvert. She does a wonderful job of of explaining the difference between introverts and extroverts. You know, it is an extrovert world out there but there are a lot of things, including computers, that would not be possible without us crazy focused introverts.

Here is a link to her Ted talk.
The Gift of Fire / On the Head of a Pin by Walter Mosley is a collection of two short stories. The first story, The Gift of Fire, is a modern retelling of the story of Prometheus and I quite enjoyed it. The second, On the Head of a Pin, was a miss for me. This book is a definite library pickup not a buy recommendation.
