What We’re Reading

It started off simple enough. I sent a company-wide email to my fellow Lulus asking two very simple questions.

I just finished reading a screenplay written by a friend of mine and was looking for some suggestions from my friendly Lulus as to what I should read next. Having worked here for four years, I should have known what to expect. CHAOS. There’s two things about us Lulus that you have to understand, we love books and we’re very opinionated. I made a rookie mistake, and I admit that. I received so many replies to my email that I’ve decided to take each Wednesday in August to highlight just a select few of the books that my fellow Lulus are currently reading.

Sarah is currently reading “The Tales of Beedle the Bard” by J. K. Rowling.  She said, “I’m reading it with my 7 year old. I love Dumbledore’s commentary.”

Shelly is reading “The Nature of Human Nature” by By Dr. Carin Bondar. She explained that “it is a great book with really cute illustrations.” She liked that Bondar looks at Humans from a different point of view.

Cary just finished reading “Eat, Pray, Love” by Elizabeth Gilbert. She said, “it was a wonderful read! If only I could take a year off and travel to Italy, India, and Bali!”

Annie is reading/has recently read 12 books (yes, I said 12). One of her recommendations was Scott Pilgrim vol 1-6 by Bryan Lee O’Malley.

    Hi Carol,

    from a selfish standpoint i’d recommend you read my mini ebook Steering success. I wanted to write something that would inspire and encourage not just writers, but everyone out there whose looking for just that spark of inspiration and knowledge.From someone that isn’t a self help guru or has been on Oprah, but has experienced life and has a creative perspective.

    i’d say read S.E Hinton’s Rumblefish, the book was amazing, and the film i loved because of it’s stylistic abstract presentation. It’s deep, moving, and very real.

    Or White Orleander by Janet Fitch the writing is amazing.

  4. I enjoy reading ” Beyond 9/11: Who is responsible for 9/11?” by Dr. Ibrahim. It reveals lots of secrets behind the September attack. It is very fascinating book.
