November Book List
Sunday, 2 November 2014
So it’s book time again! First things first - the October Book List. So I set myself the goal of three books and three books I did read, however The One Hundred Year Old Man has been left behind (again), I m half way through it though. I picked up An Absolute Deception in my work library and after reading two books on the Kindle I decided I missed an actual book so got stuck into that one. I’m glad I managed to read the three book target that I set myself, but I really do want to finish reading The One Hundred Year Old Man because I actually find the book interesting!
From the time of writing this I have 11 books until I reach my target and considering I’m averaging 3 books a month, I’m slightly apprehensive that I won’t reach that target. I’m not going to lie that upsets me slightly, but I really don’t have the time to read so much anymore :(
Anyway let us get on to what is on the menu for this month:
The Power by Rhona Byrne - After ‘The Secret’ last month, one of my friends who told me to read it gave me ‘The Power’ which is the next book up from ‘The Secret’ (I could be wrong). I’m so excited to read this! If you read my ‘3 things I learned this month’ you’ll know that I really loved ‘The Secret.’
Mother, Mother by Koren Zailckas - So I ordered a real physical book! I don’t know about you guys but I have a huge amount of books in my ‘save for later’ basket on Amazon and I decided it was time I stopped adding to it and actually started buying from it. Considering I buy most things for the Kindle I decided a physical book was needed. I really can’t remember where I heard about this book but I’m excited to get stuck into it.
Willpower: Rediscovering our Greatest Strength by Roy F. Baumeister and John Tirney - This is another book that I have had in my ‘save for later’ basket and again I can’t remember where I heard about it but I think it sounds interesting. I think originally I thought it would give me some tips to stop stuffing my face, but after seeing the phrase ‘willpower decreases every time you use it’ I’m just intrigued to find out what it’s all about and you all know I love a self help book!
The Hundred-Year-Old Man Who Climbed Out of the Window and Disappeared by Jonas Jonasson - And of course this one is back on the list; I WILL get through it this month!
