Ann isn't the type of reporter who sticks to one type of story, so it makes sense that her reading list follows a similar path. The anchor (and apparently, voracious reader) tells TODAY.com what she just can't wait to read this weekend:
I am currently reading the Steve Jobs biography, "Screw Business as Usual," by Richard Branson, the Autobiography of Mahatma Gandhi, and a book on painters composition written in the 15th century. Strange list, I know, but why should I limit myself? Like Merlin said to King Arthur in my favorite book, "The Once and Future King":
"The best thing for being sad, is to learn something. That is the only thing that never fails. You may grow old and trembling in your anatomies, you may lie awake in the middle of the night listening to the disorder of your veins, you may miss your only love, you may see the world around you devastated by evil lunatics, or know your honor trampled in the sewers of baser minds. There is only one thing for it then — to learn. Learn why the world wags and what wags it. That is the only thing the mind can never exhaust, never alienate, never be tortured by, never fear or distrust, and never dream of regretting."
What are you itching to read? Is there a book you just can't put down? Let us know in the comments.
