Some Of What I've Been Reading...
Simple Decorating by Melissa Michaels—Summer is the time I do major house cleaning, organizing, etc. so now is when I tend to read a lot of decorating and home organizing books.
My Ideal Bookshelf Art by Jane Mount Edited by Thessaly La Force—The illustrations in this book are amazing! I wish I could draw like that.
Secrets From the Eating Lab by Traci Mann—I linked to the paperback copy but as of right now, the ebook is on sale at Amazon for $1.99
Dream More by Dolly Parton—I loved this little book. It felt so authentic, so real, as if Dolly was right there with me saying, "You got this, girl. Go write that book." It's funny and real and there is a fair amount of Dolly speaking about her faith but it's not at all preachy. It's very genuine.
Goodbye, Things by Fumio Sasaki—While I'm not prepared to take things to the level the author has, I really enjoyed the book and agreed with many of his points.
On Writing Well by William Zinsser—The writing book everyone says you should read.
The New Rules of Work by Alexandra Cavoulacos and Kathryn Minshew—I almost dismissed this book as being applicable only to new/young graduates but that would have been a mistake. The job market is so different now, we could all benefit in learning how things are done today.
Fear No Evil by Charles Haley and Jeff Sullivan—Haley talks about his time playing football from high school through college and the NFL. He also talks about how being bipolar affected his career and beyond.
The One Thing by Gary Keller with Jay Papasan—What is the one thing you can do right now? The whole book is great but Fig. 24 was the most helpful for me in showing me how to fulfill my long-term goals.
In the Neighborhood by Peter Lovenheim—No way am I asking my neighbors for a sleepover but the book did give me some things to think about in regards to how I can be a better neighbor.
Hatching Twitter by Nick Bilton—a good read. The most interesting thing to me wasn't so much about Twitter as it was all the instances the media seemed to accept things at face value.
