Happy March friends! I am linking up with Modern Mrs. Darcy on what we've been reading. If you are looking for some great book inspiration, head over here and see what everyone is reading. It is like winning the lottery for book nerds!
March has been one of those months that I have started to read all those books I've been MEANING to read. You know all those books people tell you to read, but you never get to. I have made a small dent in my TBR list. Woot! On to the report.
I really enjoy Seth Godin. He is like a prophet for entrepreneurs. In Linchpin, Seth talks about how there used to be two kinds of people in the work place: management and labor. Today we have a third type of person, the linchpin. These people create order in chaos. They are inventors and creators. They make things happen.
His books are like little essays. Each book is filled with a million little quotes you never want to forget. Linchpin is about what is going to take to be successful in today's workplace. It is about creating, not just showing up. I really enjoyed this book.
Safe People has been sitting on myself for YEARS. I have no idea what has taken me so long, but this book is fantastic. Cloud and Townsend spend the first half of the book discussing why we bring unsafe people in our lives. I'll warn you, it was depressing but super informative. The last part of the book talks about who are safe people and how we can surround ourselves with people who help up grow and mature.
My favorite quote:
" We like to think of a safe relationship as one that does three things:
1. Draws us closer to God.
2. Draws us closer to others.
3. Helps us become the real person God created us to be."
I chose The Royal We for the Modern Mrs. Darcy 2016 Reading Challenge. You can see all my picks here. In this novel, American Rebecca Porter goes off to study at Oxford only to find herself falling in love with the future King of Great Britain. She finds herself in another world and learns all the highs and lows of fame.
I really enjoyed this book. The characters are fun and engaging. This book had me from the beginning.
