Books I’ve Read in the Last Few Months

I was off to a great start on my book-a-week reading and blogging this year – 12 books in 12 weeks – then encountered a hiccup with my plan. Riding the recumbent bike with a book in hand gave me a major neck strain that took me to the chiropractor a few times and took quite a while to heal. Darn! So I lost about a month of good reading time using that method, and didn’t get back into a good reading rhythm until about mid-May. Now that summer is in full swing and I’m doing a lot less carting kids around, it’s easier to read. Here are a few of the books I’ve finished recently, all of which I would highly recommend:

  • The Glass House by Jeannette Walls. This is a beautifully written memoir that reads like a novel, about a young woman growing up in very challenging circumstances who became a successful writer. Thank you to Lou Heckler for recommending it to me!
  • Are You Fascinated?: The Four People You Need to Succeed by Kenneth Tucker
  • Thriving Through Ministry Conflict by James Osterhaus, Joseph Jurkowski and Todd Hahn
  • You2: A High-Velocity Formula for Multiplying Your Personal Effectiveness in Quantum Leaps by Price Pritchett. This is one I read several years ago and found a lot of value in reading again.

And some of the books I’m in the midst of reading right now include:

  • Goals! by Brian Tracy
  • Animals, Inc.: A Business Parable for the 21st Century by Kenneth Tucker and Vandana Allman
  • Leadership from the Inside Out by Kevin Cashman

I may or may not blog about my reading over the summer, but I’ll certainly continue to enjoy reading. Here’s to good books!
