I'm reading The Recessionistas on my Kindle right now. So far, it's about what I expected, but we haven't had the crash yet.

I love the title of your blog. It makes me smile every time I visit. My husband used to call himself an "Overlord" when he was gaming (power hungry much? :-P) Maybe he's an ENTJ like you. :-)

Have a terrific reading week!

Nice mailbox list! The Island was in mine last week and I'm listening to it (and enjoying) already :) My review for The Life You've Imagined will be posted tomorrow. Have a great week, Elizabeth. I was envious of your vacation - I ate dinner and went for a walk in Ogunquit a few years ago. Charming town.

Jennifer said...
