Penny for My Thoughts Review: Self Reliance

by hedy on May 28, 2011

As you know, I am participating in the Domino Project through BzzAgent.  This month’s book was Self-Reliance, by Massachusetts native Ralph Waldo Emerson.  This particular copy had a space after each chapter when a particular point would be expounded upon by a quote by another person.  I really liked this feature.   As it almost felt like reading a book someone else had highlighted.  Plus, the quotes were from everyone from Helen Keller to a guy talking about Mark Zuckerberg.

Being a Masshole, I obviously studied the transcendentalist movement in my high school American Lit class.  I have to admit that I really liked the book, I felt that it was inspiring and relevant.  However, being written in the 19th century, it has a time-tested appeal to it.

Through a BzzAgent/Twitter contest, I won a $50 gift card to IbexWear.  I ordered the wool t-shirt
