Our Favorite Book Title, Part 12

Buying In--The Secret Dialogue Between What We Buy and Who We Are. This is no flashy, high-concept title, just a brief and well-crafted explanation of an interesting idea. Of course, it helps that the author already has a reputation for delivering thoughtful and substantial coverage of emerging ideas in the New York Times Magazine and the online magazine Slate.

Sounds like a good book to discuss. Materialism is part of our culture but how we buy stuff says so much about us.

I'll expect you to write about and provide photos of all your shoe and fancy handbag purchases over the last year.
