Since I now have a Kindle, books are better and easier than ever before. Of course I have a large library of cookbooks, but I have other interests, and lots of great books about entrepreneurship. I will do my best to categorize them as well.

First up, if you don’t have one get one.  Even my atheist friends keep a copy around.  It’s the best selling book of all time, the Holy Bible.  I have several versions, from the New American Standard Bible, an a Revised Standard Version  that I got in Sunday School after reciting the first books of the bible.  It has loads of reference material including glossaries and maps.  A King James version, which is my current favorite, a Catholic Study Bible, a Living Bible, which seems to lose context for me, and for Kindle, an English Standard and a Geneva Bible, which was the Pilgrim’s Bible, and is associated with the Reformation.  Why so many?  Because the context of the language is meaningful, and oftentimes, I will read something, and need further clarification, which may occur from a different translation.  And because they are edited by different groups and committees, in the case of the Revised Standard, my old copy had a few verses deleted.  The most complete version is the Catholic Study Bible, which includes a few books not included in the standard protestant versions.  I also have multiple dictionaries for the same reasons.  Words are important, and phrasing is even more important when expressing a point.
