I wish I could be one of those girls that is always reading a book. I could have button for it on my blog "Ask me what I'm reading!" But I can't. Why? This Christmas vacation I read two books in three days. Really it was almost two books in two days, but I didn't quite finish the second before bed. I think I had two chapters left. When I read a book I don't do anything else. I don't shower, clean, cook, or take care of my child. I just can't exist like that!
But let me tell you what I read over Christmas!
Is Everyone Hanging Out Without Me? (And Other Concerns)
I love how relateable Mindy is. Like I could have been friends with her in middle school, that time of life when true friends are so hard to come by. And she's so funny!
Outliers: The Story of Success
This was an incredibly interesting book. I never thought about all the factors that go into making someone a success. And of course as a parent there are things you can do to contribute to your child's success. I'm just wondering, where is the balance? Should I let my kids be children and play and use their imagination? Or should I teach them how to work 350 days a year (like the final chapters of the book suggest.)? Just some food for thought.
Have you read either of these books? What are you reading right now?
