I've always loved to read. Getting lost in a book is one of my favorite ways to relax and wind down. And while I love a good fiction book, I have a weakness for books on business, personal growth, etc. I ordered these four books on Amazon to kick off 2016. I'm currently reading The Alchemist and Rising Strong.
Oh, my heart of hearts. Both of the books are amazingggg! I never ever ever read books simultaneously. My brain just doesn't work that way. I have to end one before beginning another. I made an exception with these, too, though. I was just too excited to wait!
The Alchemist is actually a fiction book, which I didn't realize. I must have underlined a thousand quotes throughout this book already. It is full of so many of life's greatest lessons, and is quickly becoming one of my all time favorite reads.
Rising Strong, well, that needs no introduction at all. That is if you've heard of Brene Brown. If you haven't heard of Brene Brown (the author of the book), let me introduce you. Watch THIS VIDEO of her. You'll want to go buy the book tonight!
I'm loving both of these books and soaking up every word. So, while I'm in no rush to get through them, I am so excited to start reading Big Magic and WomanCode. If you haven't heard of these books before (or even if you have), you should listen to the Jess Lively podcasts on each... HERE is the one for Big Magic and HERE is the one for WomanCode. Jess interviews the authors of each book, and wow! These are two of her best podcasts all year. There's so much goodness and knowledge and life bits in each.
What books are you reading right now? Let me know in the comments. I have a running list of books that I want to read, and I'm always looking for more!
