  1. Wow, you have some good ones on here. My book list is well past 100 books. It’s very daunting.

  2. You *have* to read Nine Lives: Mystery, Magic, Life, and Death in New Orleans. It is one of the best books I’ve read in a while. (

    To me, this is a “must read” for every Louisianian.

  3. That list looks a little top-heavy on the marketing side, but I guess that’s normal when you’re in grad school. I love the Sacred Marriage book–have a copy if you want to borrow.
