In June I decided that I needed to read more books. The whole thing was inspired by my friend Freddie (we worked together in SF) who is a true book worm reading one book per week. I was so impressed by him that I decided to up my book-game and go from finishing zero books a year to reading one book per month. And maybe, just maybe, after I’ve read 7 books in 7 months, I can get to Freddie’s level of brilliance and read one book per week, with joy. How amazing would that be. Imagine the possibilities of learning and knowledge! Anyways, during June I finished a book my dad left here called The Wayward Bus by John Steinbeck that I had already started reading. I wasn’t really a fan of it to be honest, but at least it was in Finnish. My “official” June book was Big Magic (Elizabeth Gilbert) which I also had started back when I went to see her in Santa Cruz last year, but never finished it. This is me, starter that never finishes anything. But I did finish Big Magic almost on time (I went maybe 4 days into July) and started my July book which was Essentialism. That one I had started already back when we moved to California in August 2015. This month I’ll read more health oriented book called Chasing Life. I also made a video for this challenge. You can watch it here.
Here’s a list of books I plan to read as per my “Book a Month-Challenge”:
June – Big Magic (Elizabeth Gilbert) DONE
July – Essentialism (Greg McKeown) DONE
August – Chasing Life (Dr. Sanjay Gupta)
September – The Tao of Inner Peace (Diane Dreher)
October – Fire Starter Sessions (Danielle Laporte)
November – Add more Ing to Your Life (Gabrielle Bernstein)
December – Practical Miracles for Mars & Venus (John Gray)
