The theme for this month’s 2016 Monthly Motif Reading Challenge is Fiction Takes A Break. It’s all about Non-Fiction November this month!Kim – I had to really think about this one. In the end, I finally decided on Into Thin Air, Jon Krakauer because it’s been on my list forever. If I can’t get that from the library then my backup choice is In A Sunburned Country, Bill Bryson.
A bank of clouds was assembling on the not-so-distant horizon, but journalist-mountaineer Jon Krakauer, standing on the summit of Mt. Everest, saw nothing that “suggested that a murderous storm was bearing down.” He was wrong. The storm, claimed five lives and left countless more–including Krakauer’s–in guilt-ridden disarray.
Tanya – In my new job, I need to get people to take the red pill and follow me (Matrix reference), so I decided to go with a re-read of a How to win Friends and Influence People, Dale Carnegie.
As relevant as ever before, Dale Carnegie’s principles endure, and will help you achieve your maximum potential in the complex and competitive modern age. Learn the six ways to make people like you, the twelve ways to win people to your way of thinking, and the nine ways to change people without arousing resentment.
And then I hope to move on to It’s Not All About Me: Ten Techniques for Building Quick Rapport With Anyone, Robin Dreeke.
When you’ve completed your November read for this challenge, link to your review using the linky below. The linky will remain open until December 10th.
