Whenever I need a little pick-me-up, I usually end up at a bookstore. This time I went to Borders, and came away with the books above. It's probably one of the most diverse collections of books I've bought at one time in a while!
Wreck This Journal: This was actually the book I went to Borders to buy. The other two were just bonuses. I bought this one so I could participate in this intriguing book group. Check it out! You can jump in anytime. I'm already a couple weeks late, but I'm catching up! I've done a few pages and am looking forward to wrecking a few more. I heard a lovely interview with Keri Smith, the author, with Kimberly Wilson, and she was a fascinating person. Details and pictures to follow.
Julie and Julia: This book caught my eye just as I was leaving. I've seen it on the shelves for years now, but have never actually bought it. Now that I'm seeing movie previews, I really want to read it before I see the movie. And I need to get started because the movie comes out soon and it looks so good! I've only read a few pages, but I cannot wait to read more. I'll definitely let you know how it goes!
The 100 Best Business Books of All Time: Admittedly, this is not the most exciting book of the stack. I've been applying to jobs, and while I understand that a book will not make up for lack of experience in certain areas, I felt like it would be a good idea to familiarize myself with certain business concepts. I've been interested in business as of late, and want to know what books I should read. I considered all the books on the shelf in the business section, and I knew some of them would be good, but I wanted an endorsement of sorts before I dug in. So I decided on this one, and then from there I will buy/procure from the library some of the books on the list. I'm excited about reading this overview!
