Over the holidays I usually try to read at least one or more books that I don't have the time to get to during the rest of the year. This year I stumbled on two great books that I'd recommend you read right now.
The first was Same Kind of Different as Me: A Modern Day Slave, an International Art Dealer, and the Unlikely Woman who Bound Them Together by Ron Hall and Denver Moore.
The second was The Last Lecture by Randy Pausch. Both are the type of book that makes you sit back and consider how you're living, what's really important, and what you want to spend your life on. Both are well worth the time spent.
