Razor Girl by Carl Hiaasen
The Two-Income Trap: Why Middle-Class Parents Are Going Broke by Elizabeth Warren
A Slip of the Keyboard by Terry Pratchett
*Keeper of Dreams: Short Fiction by Orson Scott Card
The Writer’s Journey: Mythic Structure for Storytellers & Screenwriters by Christopher Vogler
*The 7 Habits of Highly Effective People: Powerful Lessons in Personal Change by Stephen R. Covey
Orson Scott Card has always been one of those authors that I don’t enjoy as much, simply because everyone else enjoys him so much as well. It feels like there isn’t much more to add to the conversation when discussing Card. BUT, every time I read one of his works I am completely swept away. So imagine reading a compilation of his short stories! I would highly suggest Keeper of Dreams to anybody who wants to read about short science fiction, or even ethics. Each story was completely captivating.
Stephen R. Covey is another one of those authors that everybody knows about. There are many versions and editions of The 7 Habits floating around, and I am not sure which version I read, as there was a long segment at the end that included updates and an author q&a section. There is quite a bit to unpack in this book, but a ton of extremely well thought out and principled information. Even if you read this and just study one of the habits, it would make your life that much better.
So how many pages this month? 2953
How many so far this year? 5996
And of course…
