As most of you know by now, I LOVE to read! I generally have several books going at any one time. People have asked me how I can do this and keep them all straight. So, let me briefly explain.
- First thing in the morning – I read inspirational stories, Christian biographies, and/or a devotional for about a half an hour.
- Before starting work, when I take a break between work projects or at lunch, and in the evening – I learn best by reading. So I usually have a business building book and/or a personal growth book going, and I pick them up whenever I have a few minutes or more to read.
- Bedtime – Fiction! And I read with my ears. I have suffered for years with insomnia. Now, at bedtime, I stick in the ear buds, find where I was in the audiobook I’m listening to, set the timer to go off in 30 or 45 minutes, and listen until I fall asleep, which I almost always do.
- At the Gym & While Driving – I listen to business or personal growth podcasts and audio books.
I told you, I really LOVE reading!
In addition to always reading, I am always recommending books to people and often give them as gifts. Recently, a blog-reading friend suggested I include occasional book reviews on Rehearsing RetirementTM. So, today I launch the Book Review category. I hope you’re inspired to read a few of the books I’ll review here.
I begin with a book that I mentioned recently in the post, Starting a Business is Hard – but Oh, So Worth It! As I related, Hilda the Book, by Coach Jennie was instrumental in helping me get out of my own head, and I highly recommend it!
Happy Reading! [Read more…]
