Walden on Wheels: On the Open Road from Debt to Freedom

by: Ken Ilgunas


4.5 stars/ FREE Kindle edition!

In this frank and witty memoir, Ken Ilgunas lays bare the existential terror of graduating from the University of Buffalo with $32,000 of student debt. Ilgunas set himself an ambitious mission: get out of debt as quickly as possible. Inspired by the frugality and philosophy of Henry David Thoreau, Ilgunas undertook a 3-year transcontinental jour¬ney, working in Alaska as a tour guide, garbage picker, and night cook to pay off his student loans before hitchhiking home to New York.

Debt-free, Ilgunas then enrolled in a master’s program at Duke University, determined not to borrow against his future again. He used the last of his savings to buy himself a used Econoline van and outfitted it as his new dorm.

Coffee and Gilmore Girls go hand in hand. Preferably a coffee in one and a Lauren Graham book in the other. If you are as big of a fan as we are you are going to love these books! Lauren Graham was amazing as Lorelei but, did you know she is even better as an author. Her recently released memoir is a New York Times bestseller as well as her very fist novel. Ms. Graham is a woman of many talents, she has already more than proven herself as an actress and now, her writing talents are just as amazing!

The Rosie Project: A Novel

by: Graeme Simsion

4.5 stars/ New York Times Bestseller

Now in paperback, the international bestselling romantic comedy “bursting with warmth, emotional depth, and…humor,” (Entertainment Weekly) featuring the oddly charming, socially challenged genetics professor, Don, as he seeks true love.

The art of love is never a science: Meet Don Tillman, a brilliant yet socially inept professor of genetics, who’s decided it’s time he found a wife. In the orderly, evidence-based manner with which Don approaches all things, he designs the Wife Project to find his perfect partner: a sixteen-page, scientifically valid survey to filter out the drinkers, the smokers, the late arrivers.

Rosie Jarman possesses all these qualities. Don easily disqualifies her as a candidate for The Wife Project (even if she is “quite intelligent for a barmaid”). But Don is intrigued by Rosie’s own quest to identify her biological father.

COFFEE AND BOOKS: INTROVERTS MUST READ

Posted on Mon, Mar 27, 2017

Quiet: The Power of Introverts in a World That Can't Stop Talking

by: Susan Cain


*AMAZON BESTSELLER, 4.5 STARS*

At least one-third of the people we know are introverts. They are the ones who prefer listening to speaking; who innovate and create but dislike self-promotion; who favor working on their own over working in teams. It is to introverts—Rosa Parks, Chopin, Dr. Seuss, Steve Wozniak—that we owe many of the great contributions to society. 

In Quiet, Susan Cain argues that we dramatically undervalue introverts and shows how much we lose in doing so. She charts the rise of the Extrovert Ideal throughout the twentieth century and explores how deeply it has come to permeate our culture. She also introduces us to successful introverts—from a witty, high-octane public speaker who recharges in solitude after his talks, to a record-breaking salesman who quietly taps into the power of questions.
