March 3I got a package from Amazon today with two new things for me to read. I chose “Everyone is Beautiful” by Katherine Center. She was a classmate of mine in college. Her first book, “The Bright Side of Disaster” received a lot of buzz and was a very enjoyable book. This is her second novel, which I am really looking forward to!

The other book is “Parentonomics” by Joshua Gans. Last year I read “Freakonomics” by Steven Levitt and found it fascinating. It is about the application of economic principles to every day life. For example, why day cares are actually getting the opposite of the desired effect when they charge parents who are late picking up their kids. This book is by a different author but is supposed to explore whether and how to incentivize your kids to behave well and how to disincentivize them from behaving badly.

Note: This is my March 3rd post. I thought it had posted last night, but apparently it got stuck in a cyber-pothole and got stuck in “draft” status overnight. Sorry Angela!
