Right Now I'm Reading
My favorite book in recent years is Perfectly Legal, a book about how the tax code is manipulated by the top one tenth of one percent to push the taxes on the middle class.
Mark J. Penn with E. Kinney
, a book discussing the changing trends in American society.
Carl Hiaasen, his books about Florida are so outrageous and funny. Jules Vern, even though his books were written more than a century ago, his stories about submarines, marooned hot air balloonists and journeys to the center of the earth are still so much fun to read.
Reading is Important
The enjoyment of reading is one of the most important things we can teach our children. We should not only teach our children to read fiction books for enjoyment, but also non-fiction books about history, philosophy and society.
