I remember when I was a kid, I would see others my age reading for pleasure. I was NOT one of those kids. There, I admit it. I couldn’t stand reading for pleasure. B-O-R-I-N-G! It wasn’t until I got out of college that I started reading, and I think I’m trying to catch up for lost time. I now LOVE to read. I read every chance I get.
This time of year, bookstores display tables for “summer/beach reading” recommendations. Summer reading especially while at the beach or relaxing in a mountain cabin is just heavenly. I’m very happy to be visiting both this summer and have already enjoyed my beach time. I’m getting ready to head to the mountains in two days and already have my books ready to pack. Now mind you, I also have a Nook. E-readers are just the best folks. If you do not have one, put it on your wish list today.
What do I read? Everything. From romance novels to mysteries in fiction along with a wide variety of nonfiction offerings fill my library. However, it’s this time of year in my career that I work to recharge my professional batteries and dig into some great career related titles. My current favorite is Who’s Got Your Back by Keith Ferrazzi. If you have not read it, I strongly suggest you run out and buy it today along with his previous best seller Never Eat Alone. AMAZING BOOKS!
If you have not started a professional library, start getting recommendations from your colleagues today. Take the time to get out of your own mind through the joy of reading, and I promise you will find yourself newly charged by the final page.
