Denver, CO -- July 31, 2007

Reading Warcraft Archive, by Richard Knaack, Christie Golden, Jeff Grubb, and Chris Metzen. She's played the game and this book, which tells the plot, will help her better appreciate the game.

She likes to read about different religions, including Norse Paganism. A good book on the subject--Essential Asatru: Walking the Path of Norse Paganism, byDiana Paxton. She herself is a Norse Pagan.

Don’t limit yourself in religion, she said. All roads lead to the same place.

A book that’s taught her something that’s helped her succeed--it was something for work called Crucial Conversations, by Kerry Patterson, Joseph Grenny, Ron McMillan, and Al Switzler. The book is about conflict management. People don’t just do things to be crabby, she said, and you have to figure out what they say they want in the first place. You have to get out of the Me me me, which is how we’re groomed as children.

What’s cool about Denver? There are a lot of haunted houses. She recommends The Ghosts of Denver: Capital Hill, by Phil Goldstien. It’s a city with lots of skeletons in the closets and people who died unfortunate deaths.
