During winter break, you might want to read something inspirational.

Did exams get you down?  Are you wondering if law is really for you?  There are all sorts of things that you might want to read during break to rev up your excitement about law school.

Some of our favorites:
  • The Autobiography of an Execution, David Dow (here):   yes, we're friends with David and Katya, but we'd like this book even if we didn't know them.
  • Gideon's Trumpet, Anthony Lewis (here):  a classic, and Gideon spent a week in Orange, Texas (NBR's home town).
  • A Civil Action, Jonathan Harr (here):  the movie (here) is good, too.
  • We don't agree with everyone on this list of lawyers to study (here), but it's certainly a nice start.
  • We haven't seen every movie on this list (here), but NBR likes The Thin Blue Line.
  • And, for fun, there's nothing quite like the movie My Cousin Vinny (here).
