Not a heavy reading month for me, but I did find a few I enjoyed. I also stocked up on a bunch of books to read this summer! For a list of all of my 2015 reading (last pages will be May), click HERE. Now for the best of May:
Being a health geek, I found this book quite entertaining. There are so many contradicting health claims in the media today that it’s very hard to know what we should be doing. A.J. decides to research as much of them as he can and the try it out. So he does with often hilarious results for two years. At the end of it, he seems to have embraced what works for HIM and ditched what isn’t realistic. Which is exactly what I do for my clients – help them discover what works best for their life and health. My rating 4 out of 5.
I actually listened to this “book” on CD’s in my car. Something I rarely do, but my local library only had the CD version. Although I wasn’t able to take notes (and would have liked to sometimes), I found the audio version to be a terrific way to soak up the profit models outlined. The story was entertaining and it was a unique way to present and learn about profitability. There were definitely some useful nuggets – a great book for anyone interested in profitability. My rating 4 out of 5.
A nice vacation read – not as fluffy as a typical chick lit or beach read, but still entertaining. I love the way the main character finds herself – and comes to so many realizations about what she really wants out of life – and I thought that what she discovered was hopeful and a terrific reminder for everyone. The supporting characters were very endearing – I got a real kick out of some of them. My rating 4.5 out of 5.
Although I didn’t like this one as much as Lisa Genova’s Still Alice, I did find the book engrossing and meaningful. Although my life isn’t as crazy as Sarah’s, I could relate to her struggle to be both a good employee and a good mom – it’s very challenging to excel at both at the same time. I’d never heard of left neglect but the author did a great job of describing how it must feel from Sarah’s point of view. The lessons Sarah learns are important ones – for her and for all busy professional moms. My rating 4 out of 5.
Looking for more time to read? I found the joy of audio books this month, and I’ve been making a point of keeping a book in the car to read while waiting in the carpool line, at swim practice, etc. I’ve found it’s always possible to create time for what you want to do – and starting out your day on a positive note is a great way to begin.
