Now that the school year has come to a close, there’s nothing more exciting than the moments where reading is no longer required but by choice. I can’t wait to dive into some books that have on hold until summer. Whether history, non-fiction, business, or self-improvement is your thing, you’ll find a new favorite, as we share what we’re reading, spring edition.
Here’s the 5 Books on our Nightstand:
Tribes: We Need You to Lead Us by Seth Goodin: I’ve loved Seth’s writing for years and can’t wait to dive into this one. In the online and social media marketing world, throwing around the phrase “find your tribe” is commonplace and normal. What does it mean and how do you leverage it for your business? Seth explains it in this book.
The Gifts of Imperfection by Brene Brown: Made famous by her TED Talks on shame and vulnerability, Brene Brown started her writing with this book. You might remember that this book showed up on our reading list during the winter months, but it got shelved due to school reading. We’ve restarted this one in our first week off of school and can’t tell you how good it is. She might have had me crying at the introduction.
Ted Talks: The Official Guide to Public Speaking: If you’re anything like me, you can listen to TED Talk after TED Talk without much thought. (I not so secretly would love to give a TED talk in the future.) For anyone who does public speaking for a living, this book is a must purchase.
The Search for God and Guinness: An all-time favorite, perfect for beach reading. It’s meaty enough that doesn’t feel fluffy for non-fiction and steeps itself deeply into the history of Ireland.
Chasing Slow: Over the past year, the seasons have felt like a blur, a rat race of sorts. With endless hustle and task lists, this summer I’m looking for ways to wind down, have rest, and find margin. I think this book will be the practical help to get me there.
