What's Tristaters Are Reading

        Sharon Hardin, Executive director, Arts Consortium of Cincinnati:

        All the Joy You Can Stand by Debrena Jackson Gandy (Three Rivers Press; $12).

        “It's sort of a self-help book, and it's working. I'm reading it because I want to continue to access my inner power, to live more joyfully and boldly, and to revive my spirit more than anything. This book makes it easy and fun, and gets you enthused about being all you can be.”

        Jerry Malsh, Owner, J. Malsh & Co. Advertising:

        Salt: A World History by Mark Kurlansky (Walker Publishing; $28).

        “It's 484 pages and everything you never thought you'd want to know about sodium chloride. The art of taking something so seemingly mundane and making it so totally fascinating keeps me focused and relaxed at the same time.”

        U.S. District Judge Susan Dlott, Currently overseeing Cincinnati's racial profiling case:

        Memoirs of a Geisha by Arthur Golden (Vintage; $14).

        “It's a book you just can't put down no matter how hard you try and no matter how many other things you have to do. What a fascinating story about a culture totally different from ours. But the funny thing is, it addresses a lot of themes common to women everywhere.”
