This past month and a half both Kim and I are running around like crazy – Kim has a little one to keep her busy (a little one and a bigger little one 🙂 And I’m in the middle of teenage boy(s) spaz out(s), swimming championship season for the youngest, changing to another new role in my job + finally taking the plunge and starting to study for the PMP exam. So we weren’t as present on here as we’d like to be … but wouldn’t ya know – we missed you and we’re working our way back. Here’s some of the things I read + saved this week (… and last week too).
… On Reading
ONE. 33 Thoughts on Reading … “When I find an author I truly adore, an author who makes my gut strings vibrate, I will read everything they have written. Then I will read everything that they read.”
TWO. Why I Limit the Number of Books I Own are pretty much my thoughts as well – I keep the books I want to re-read, keep as a reference or want my kids to read someday.
THREE. I never thought about this before, but I do many of these 19 Kinds of Reading.
FOUR. Thanks Sarah for these tips – Did You Know You Can…? 8 Tricks to Make Your Reading Life Easier.
FIVE. Have you read any of the 20 Books That Already Have Hundreds of Reviews This Year? What did you think? I’ve only read An American Marriage, Tayari Jones – and loved it!
… On Life
SIX. I love this series of articles on How I Get It Done @ The Cut. There’s such a diverse group of people interviewed, and they all get it done a little differently.
SEVEN. Have you used any of these 6 Apps That Make Travel Better.
EIGHT. I probably spend a little too much time reading about organizing – but I love trying to figure out How to Organize Everything.
… On Blogging
TEN. A long-time blogger shares her Essential Blogging Tools: Sharing What’s In My Blogging Arsenal In the Past 8 Years.
… Currently Reading
I’m currently reading The Book of Memory, Petina Gappah. It’s set in Zimbabwe, and perfect for our MARCH Monthly Motif Theme – Travel the World. It’s about an albino woman named Memory, who is languishing in Chikurubi Maximum Security Prison in Harare, Zimbabwe, where she has been convicted of murder.
I’m also listening to the audiobook of The Woman in the Window, A.J. Finn. This book was one of my selections to read from Amazon Best Books of January . It reminds me a lot of Girl on the Train – with it’s seemingly moronic main character. But I love a good unreliable character story.
