Reading is a past-time that I used to love, before having my daughter Daisy. I’m trying to get back to enjoying the things that I used to enjoy. This can be a bit of a stretch on my time but I knew that if I made this a monthly post I would read at least one or two books each month! I’m looking forward to sharing with you what I’ve been reading each month. I’ll be talking about a variety of books, as this is what I intend to read. I love to work on self-improvement, read about blogging better and also read the odd parenting book. From time to time there might be a mention of books that Daisy is reading too, as naturally I’m reading those with her at the moment.
What I’ve been reading – June 2017 edition
What I’ve been reading & loved
Getting Things Done: The Art of Stress-Free Productivity – This has been a great help to me. I’m working on stressing less, being more productive and getting things done. There were parts of this book that I found myself dipping in and out of, however, overall I picked up a few tips. Productivity is something that I am always working on. I’ve been working on online jobs in batches now, which has freed up a lot of my time. Anywhere that I can boost productivity is great as it gives me more time for the things in life that I enjoy.
Goodnight Mister Tom – I saw this in a charity shop recently then promptly forgot to pick it up! I decided to buy the Kindle edition and reminisce over a book I haven’t read since school. This book was as good as I remembered! It tells a story of a young boy, William Beech, who is an evacuee and is taken in by Mister Tom. It has emotional parts to it and it is a real feel good book. I managed to read this in just a couple of evenings, working less in the process. Which is always good for me!
What I’ve been reading and have not loved
Pinterest for Small Business – This book was AWFUL. It was basically a small amount of pages giving me a brief description of what Pinterest is. I learned nothing at all.
Pinterest Traffic Secrets 2016- Beginners Only Training: – This book was basically the exact same book as above, just re-written in places. Some pages were IDENTICAL! Disappointment all round for these two.
I’m not thinking that I will need to have this section every month, as I’m pretty good at making a judgement on what I’ll enjoy. However, if I read something, particularly related to blogging, and it is awful hopefully I can avoid someone else wasting their money!
What I’m planning on reading next
The Million Dollar Blog – I’ve read this before, at the beginning of the year. I want to flick back through to give myself a reminder of the tips I picked up.
Got a suggestion of a great book for me? Why not leave me a comment or send me a message over on Twitter. I’m always interested in new books, and trying to improve myself in the process.
If you enjoyed this post I’d love it if you could pin it on Pinterest!
