Hi, Jam.  What class did you read "Lean In" for?

1. The Bottom Billion, by Paul Collier

2. Not nearly as much time as I'd like. This semester, I've been limited to reading for school. I have a massive to-read list as soon as I am freed up.

3. No. I've taken enough German to order a beer and find a toilet though. I could probably even manage to get a plate full of wienerschnitzel if I had to.

That is so cool you're fluent in sign language bea, I didn't know that.  I took an ASL course last Summer, I know the alphabet and I can sign "the giving tree"! (our final was to sign a children's book that the teacher video-recorded too, Can you say stage fright? Lol!)  I have a friend whose deaf, Her ds and my ds are buddies, She encouraged me to take that course and I needed it to satisfy a foreign language requirement.

Come on now, I saw it--some should read the bible in every language in their free time in jail. Did you tell your husband that?

On Wednesdays we wear pink.

1. I am just about finished up with Ten Years Later by Hoda Kotb.  Tomorrow I plan on starting Team of Rivals by Doris Kearns Goodwin.

2,  Finding time to read is not an issue, as an emptynester I have a lot of free time.  Taking advantage of that free time is the issue.

3,  No.  I know a bit of Japanese and Turkey when I lived in those countries but mainly just what I needed for getting around and shopping but I have forgotten most of it.   Know a bit of Spanish,  both from taking it in school and from living in Texas.   

4. no

Sounds like a solid plan to present to any parole board.

There is no course I read Lean In for thardy.. But that's an interesting idea! My friend works at Colgate U and she met Sandberg in person when she gave a talk there, She gave me her book. It really is a good book if you have the chance to read it.
