My grandmother taught me to read at the age of 5, and books and I have been the best of friends ever since.
Lately, with the schedule I keep, the only time I get to read is when I’m at the cottage in the summer. I go through a book or two a week there. Once hockey starts, everything else kind of takes a back seat. In an effort to avoid that happening (because not reading makes me sad), I’ve got a list going of books that I want to read over the next three months. I’ve divided it into the personal development and for-fun categories, split down the middle. Three of each.
Three Personal Development Books I want to Read:
I bought this one back in May when I thought I would have some time on my hands to get my business stuff together. It didn’t happen, but that doesn’t mean I don’t want to get it read. I think it might help with some of the time crunch situations I find myself in. Also, the first thing to go when life gets busy is my goals, so I am trying to prevent that. The book comes highly recommended.
Another one bought in the flurry of Get.All.The.Things.Done. We’ve been flying by the seat of our pants with HbH. I would really like that to stop so I don’t feel so scattered. Plans make me feel better. I sat down and wrote shop polices last month, so this month will be about developing a solid plan going forward on how we present ourselves to the world.
Last but not least, as a parent of an introvert, I have been anxiously awaiting this book for quite some time. This is the book I needed my parents to have growing up. There are very different ways of parenting an introvert vs an extrovert and I’m hoping to learn about it from this book. I know what I need as an introvert, but what I need may not be the same as what Boy #2 needs. And that’s ok. Hopefully this book provides me with some suggestions for going forward.
Three Books I’ll Be Reading for Fun:
Purely light and fun reading. This book is something that let’s my brain take a break and get lost in a story.
I love me some running. I have a big goal for a 10km run in October and I figure this might be the thing to get my legs moving again. Right now I’m struggling with motivation.
It’s the first book in a trilogy about witches. I mean, what more could you ask for?
How about you? What will you be reading for the next few months? I’m always looking for book suggestions, so fire away in the comments!
