Here are some books Sharon loves that you may have missed.

Tiger Moms may not have all the answers. Surprise surprise!

Glad to hear this Spanish town decided to change it’s name from “Kill Jews.” Surprised 19 voted against it.

Speaking of making money, maybe a job as an Uber driver isn’t such a bad idea.


There’s room for diversity at Google. Tell your daughters and granddaughters to become engineers and programmers.

Knowsy Moms shares some actual students and their actual dorm room needs. Check out Knowsy Moms for all things college!


The blog Ladypockets is just hilarious.

I always try to pick at least one thing to comment on, the death of Maya Angelo I think had a deep impact this week.
