Biblio-Files August 2017
This month was half reading for pleasure and half on my mission for more knowledge. I am also changing the format of how I show the books. Mainly because I am moving into reading more of the business books on a kindle, so I no longer have the physical books. The other reason is that I want to be able to donate the fiction faster on a clutter level. I miss the photo of the stacks already, but we do what we need to do.
1. IV by Chuck Klosterman. I read anything he writes, as I love his voice. IV is a collection of his essays which admittedly, some were of zero interest to me so I skimmed them. But some were amazing and made reading the collection worth it.
2. Getting Things Done by David Allen. I’m pretty sure that I have been in the middle of this book for years and finally finished it. I love the GTD method and use much of Allen’s philosophies on productivity in my life. A must read for anyone who enjoys learning about goals and productivity.
3. Dreams of Joy by Lisa See. A wonderful story about two generations of a Shanghai family now in California. See writes historically in a wonderful manner and I was immediately caught up in the story.
4. You are A Badass at Making Money by Jen Sincero. We read the first book for a book club last year and it was so well enjoyed that this one was read for it as well. Sincero is a little on the woo woo side for me, but I still enjoyed her books and her thoughts on running a creative business.
