The Amazing Read: Summer Reading Challenge, Week 10

amazing readI'm back from last week's visit to another world.  I decided to visit Graphic Novel Land, and spent some time in the Sandman's dream world and the altered Victorian detective world of Ruse, which I found as a suggestion from another summer reader.  I enjoyed my time "out of this world" thoroughly.

We are now in the final week of The Amazing Read, so let's end on an inspirational note:  Read something that helps make you a better person.  You can take the spiritual or philosophical route, or pick something that will aid in self-improvement, like The Power of Habit.  You can focus on your professional life, with a book like The $100 Startup: Reinvent the Way You Make a Living, Do What You Love, and Create a New Future.  Or, enhance your parenting skills with a book like Teach Your Children Well: Parenting for Authentic Success.  Improve your physical self with the latest yoga guide or stress management tool.  We all have something we could work on!  What are you reading?

We hope that you've all enjoyed The Amazing Read challenge and all of summer reading this year.  Don't forget to register for the program and record your titles by August 11th to be eligible for prizes.

I found The Rare Find:

I found The Rare Find: Spotting Exceptional Talent Before Everyone Else by George Anders. I'll be reading this in small pieces to find what I can develop in myself.

Great idea, Janette!

I am reading Falling Upward:

I am reading Falling Upward: a Spirituality for the Two Halves of Life by Richard Rohr. It is a very inspirational book about how the second half of life can be rich with meaning.
