What Julia Allison Reads...

Yes, apparently she does read things other than Time Out New York and the mean things they write on Gawker. Julia has posted her top 3 summer reads for your enjoyment! Her picks?

1. Here Comes Everybody by Clay Shirky
2. Once You’re Lucky, Twice You’re Good by Sarah Lacy
3. Sperm are from Men, Eggs are from Women by Joe Quirk

Let's analyze, shall we? Here Comes Everybody and Once You're Lucky both explore technology as it relates to the interwebs. The first is about using web 2.0 for social, political and professional networking. The second looks into the rise of...web 2.0. Huh. Well, we all know that Allison is a bit of an internet addict - from her blog to her failed joint relationship (blog) to her twitter. If you want to know where Allison is, it's not hard to track her down and figure out exactly what she's wearing.

And of course, Sperm are from Men, Eggs are from Women, which explores how biology causes men and women to act differently - basically one's reproductive cells make the rules for us. Written in a way we can all understand (as Quirk is a "normal" dude rather than a scary scientist who uses big words), Sperm is no doubt great fodder for Allison's Time Out New York dating column.

So there you have you it. Julia Allison's top 3 books all tie into what Julia Allison - web 2.0 addict/dating columnist/user of blogs to document relationships - does best. Promoting herself, her love life, her feelings about her love life, and her "career" to anyone who bothers to tune in. Which, god help me, I do.
