CASH: The Looming Tower by Lawrence Wright. It gave me a new understanding of the Middle East.

JESSICA: A New Earth by Eckhart Tolle. It’s a lot of ideas about trying to disconnect from your ego.

JIMMY: Charles Bock’s Beautiful Children. I went to sixth grade with his brothers. Sarah’s not a big reader.

SARAH: What?

JIMMY: You’re not.

SARAH: I know, but that’s not how I want America to perceive me!

WILLIAM: Electric Universe [by David Bodanis], about the history of electricity. It was fascinating! Felicity’s sister sent it to me.

FELICITY: I do have some smart family members.
