What I’m Reading
Lately, my attention span has been pretty short, but that doesn’t mean I stop reading. It simply means I jump from book to book, depending on the mood. A sign of a good book, in my opinion, is one that I must finish before going back to the others. Or one that keeps jumping to the top of the pile.
Here are my books for this week, loosely ordered as if you were looking at the eclectic stack on my desk:
The Gift: 12 Lessons to Save Your Life by Edith Eger
The Dead Will Tell (Kate Burkholder #6) by Linda Castillo
A House Divided (Rowland Sinclair #1) by Sulari Gentill
You Are Never Alone by Max Lucado
A few comments about the books:
The Gift is a “how to” pragmatic follow up to Dr. Eger’s book The Choice, which I thoroughly enjoyed (as much as one can enjoy a memoir about the Holocaust and personal experience). Actually Dr. Eger conveys so much practical advice and inspiration, I can’t recommend The Choice more exuberantly.
Just started The Dead Will Tell. It’s compelling and maybe nightmare-inducing, as many of Linda Castillo’s books are. Looking forward to finding out what happens to Kate Burkholder next.
Napoleon Hill’s book establishes a reading schedule for one year, including it over and over again each week, and taking a year to work through the book. I doubt I will read it that slowly, but there are lots of interesting tips. I probably will read through it earlier and faster. I’m such a rebel. Sometimes.
I haven’t read Max Lucado before, but the book You Are Never Alone looked interesting. It’s different from my usual palette of books, but so far it is a positive read.
I’ll let you know how the books were, after I finish.
