Books to curl up with: a librarian's musings

Tuesday, September 04, 2007


It is probably telling about where I stand in this economy that my bookmark for a book on the very, very rich was a Taco Bell receipt.

Richistan chronicles the almost separate world of the boom in millionaires. Frank began the book as an article for the Wall St. Journal. He chronicles their views on themselves as much as the perks of their wealth. I enjoyed the chapter with the philanthropy - Glimmer of Hope. It was at times hard to fathom their lifestyle and staff. It was also suprising find out that for all their money many of them are deeply in deep keeping up with the Jones millionaire style.
