Light Reading-World’s Shortest Books.

 As an attorney I always have my fair share of reading to do.  I know you bloggers like to read as well but sometimes I just want to find a small leaflet or pamphlet to read that is not too heavy so I can relax.  I know there have been many lists created like this and I STRONGLY encourage your submissions as well.

Here are my suggestions for the world’s shortest books:

1.  Lessons on Fidelity by Bill Clinton

3.  The Women I’ve Loved by Barney Frank

4. What I Love About America by Nancy Pelosi and Michele Obama

5.  Diets That I Can Prove Will Work by Oprah Winfrey

6.  CNN’s Guide to Unbiased Reporting (forward by the New York Times)

7.  People I Haven’t Slept With by Britney Spears

    Jay: excellent suggestions–I think if I get enough titles I can form an entire library in my desk drawer.

  6. Stacy Says:

    Brilliant Murph.

  7. mklasing Says:

    Thanks Stacy–you are one of my many muses I assure you!

    Great list. I like the way your mind works. If this law gig doesn’t work out for you, I think I can pull some strings for you to be a staff writer at “Necessary Therapy”. Give it some thought. I’ll be in touch.

  9. mklasing Says:

    Pistol: believe me–if the money is right, I’m there. It’s that dadgum money part that seems to get in the way though. I do have an actual book in the works that you would be interested in–I may tap you for your thoughts on it prior to attempting to publish it–I’ll keep in touch on that one…


  10. Genius!

    I’d like to add another title to your library:
    Getting Tough On Illegal Immigration by Senator John McCain

  11. pistolpete Says:

    I can offer you 50% of the proceeds of “Necessary Therapy”. Sure, right now that amounts to exactly nothing, but you never know.

    I would be honored to take a look at your book (or whatever portions you choose to share). You have a sharp wit and a way with words. I’m sure you could produce a quality piece of work.

    Though I don’t have aspirations to write a book of my own, I am seriously thinking of a second career (or sideline) as sort of a quasi-editor/co-author.
