Books are a great escape. And while the kindle is all the rage, or iBooks from iPad, I still prefer the real thing. Nothing compares to a delicious 300 page book. Here are my top picks that are blowing my mind!

Amy Poehler – Yes Please
It’s Amy Poehler, why do you need an explanation? Just say yes, and read it!
Andrew Roberts – Napoleon: A Life
I’ve always been fascinated by this man. Roberts, a renowned historian sheds a different light on a man typically stereotyped as austere and and narcissistic. In Roberts account, Napoleon is a military genius, killer multitasker, decisive, and strategic. No different than any successful entrepreneur would behave today.
Betty Halbreich – I’ll Drink to That: A Life in Style, with a Twist
If you have ever been through a divorce you will relate to this book. After twenty years of marriage, Betty finds herself divorced and unsure of her identity to the world, other than “wife”. But she’s given a second chance as a Personal Shopper at Bergdorf Goodmans. Terrific and funny read.
Charles Belfoure –The Paris Architect: A Novel
– Ambivalent architect builds a hiding place for jews during WWII. Still getting through this one, but worth the read!
Daniel James Bradley –The Boys in the Boat: Nine Americans and Their Epic Quest for Gold at the 1936 Berlin Olympics
– Wow, stop what you are doing and read this. Inspirational and motivational. Nine working class boys from America beat the odds and win the 1936 rowing competition against Hitler’s team.
Donna Tartt –The Goldfinch: A Novel (Pulitzer Prize for Fiction)
“loss and obsession, survival and self-invention, and the ruthless machinations of fate.” Amazons description pretty much sums it up. We read this in book club last year and despite coming out in 2013, it’s well worth the read.
