my brother challenged me to read 100 books…

Reading challenge_edited-1

At the end of last October, I got a text from my little brother, offering up the challenge that we should both read 100 books in a year's time. By the end of December, we each had read approximately 1.5 books, so we considered those two months a head start. I can't say that 2017 is on pace to meet the 100 book goal by end-Dec, but I'm certainly not giving up yet! What I've read so far…

Heads in Beds: A Reckless Memoir of Hotels, Hustles, and So-Called Hospitality – I really wanted to like this book, but found it arrogant and somewhat boring. 

Everything We Keep – This was a fun vacation read. Look at me, reading fiction!

Conversations that Matter: Insights & Distinctions – Landmark Essays, Vol 2 – An excellent way to stay connected to the distinctions & learnings of The Forum. I read an essay or two a day. 

The Book of EST – Super interesting! This is a portrayal of the The Forum before it became The Forum, when Landmark was EST. 

How to Travel the World on $50 a Day – A few interesting tidbits, but mostly geared toward a younger/bolder traveler. I've also come to the place where I want some ease & comfort in travel…and I'm willing to pay for it. 

The Cozy Life: Rediscover the Joys of the Simple Life Through the Danish Concept of Hygge - Hygge is trendy. This book is terrible. Save your $0.99. 

How to Live a Good Life – I listened to this one as an audiobook…and kinda wish that I'd bought the Kindle or paperback instead. Day-by-day instructions and bulleted lists just don't translate well into audio. That said, I really enjoy Jonathan Fields' writing. 

Getting Noticed: A No-Nonsense Guide to Standing Out & Selling More for Mompreneurs Who 'Ain't Got Time for That' – a FABULOUS read. Lindsay's style is fun & authentic. This is a must-read for anyone starting out in a side hustle (y'know like Young Living). Lindsay has made serious bank in a short period of time, and she shares openly about how she did it. 

Only 92 books to go!!
