I was reading one of Alan Weiss’ blogs this weekend and he was discussing several books he has recently read. It occurred to me that one of my goals for the year was to be a more consistent reader of all types of books. So far, I’m falling behind…
SO – I’m making a mid-year goal to get back on the bandwagon. Reading is essential to education and promoting a well-rounded, holistic individual. I need to make that a bigger commitment in my life. I’ve added a category to this blog to write about books I am reading (or have read). You are invited and encouraged to join i the fun and post about what you are reading.
I’m going to start with a book I finished last month. I was at the airport waiting to catch a flight to Boise, ID for a golf weekend. I needed a light, humorous read so i picked up Marley and Meby John Grogan. It hit the spot. This isn’t a self-help or deep book by any means. It does make you laugh, though. And, it points out some life lessons that being part of a family brings. I highly recommend it for everyone. If you are a dog owner, it’s a must-read.
The next book I’m going to tackle is a business book on marketing titled Made to Stick by Chip and Dan Heath. Look for my “book report” later…promise!
