Not Another Summer Reading List

Oh yes! I’m sure one of you read the title and vowed to throw your tablet as soon as it danced it’s way through your email. In any event, all of the websites I indulge in are posting their “Summer Reading List”, for the book lovers worldwide. While such a phenomenon  is trending, I was forced to face several truths:

  • I am not the nerd I used to be. About 5 years ago I tapped out my yearly reading list at about 40 books per year. Since then, the list has dwindled down drastically to about 10. Dont. Judge. Me
  •  People still read? Aw shucks! With the whole Kindle and e-book movement, it made life a lot easier for bookworms to stay on top of the new…and get to it a hell of a lot faster.
  • I still owe my local library about $11. They will get it when I feel like getting it to them, damnit.
  • Classic literature is making a comeback. I am seeing more Dickens on people’s list than ever before.

While I am moving at a snails pace with my reading, I still would like to share with you a few books that I’ve already knocked out and enjoyed. Explore them at your leisure.

I found this e-book via Forbes and just had to read it. I think anyone trying to stay ahead of changing trends in tech & money should read this. It isn’t a long read, but very informative! I am practicing some of it’s many gems…right now.

SarahPhoenix

I found this on amazon as free e book, I think. I’ve never really been into sci-fi/fantasy type of books, but this was dope. It follows Sarah Phoenix, a girl with a gift (no spoilers) through her plight out of a povertous environment, to compete for a better life. With all sorts of twist, you will probably read this in no time and await the next book.

Art of war plus

Ah,my secret weapon. I admit I do read a bunch of random stuff to keep my mind crisp. I read years ago, that successful people are often sales people…no matter what product they are selling. Why not sell yourself?! You are an ever changing product! In order to maneuver through different jobs and life situations, I find it highly effective to know how to present yourself. Oddly enough, because of this book, I am now trying my hand in the sales department at my job *pops collar*. Still a great read for people who prefer strategy over window jumping. You can apply this book to every aspect of your life since The Art Of War is included. Thank me later.

  1. I haven’t heard of any of these! I’m currently reading everything for my Lit degree – the list is on my blog, it’s far too extensive to type here! It includes a lot of crime and detective fiction of the 20th century which I’m definitely looking forward to.
