It’s time for an overdue Summer reading re-cap! While I had a very busy summer, I did manage to read a few books. So here’s what accompanied me through the summer months:
Feel the Fear and Do it Anyways by Susan Jeffers
A must, ladies! I’m not sure why I hadn’t read this before, but I’m sure glad I did! In fact, I’ll probably read it again at some point :-).
Becoming the Boss by Lindsey Pollak
Great book if you’re starting your career. But, because I’m not in that stage of my life, I stopped reading half way through it, and moved to something else. I do have to say, I wish I had read a book like this in my early 20’s. Btw, I used to feel terribly guilty if I didn’t finish books… I don’t any more! I love Lindsey’s work and I can’t wait to get started on her latest, The Remix: How to Succeed in the Multigenerational Workplace, which we’re meant to be discussing on Jewish Latin Princess Podcast in a few weeks. So, I’ll update you on that.
Positivity Bias by Rabbi Mendel Kalmenson
Another must! I think this book will quickly become one of those classics that needs to be in every Jewish home. Do yourself a favor and get it! You will thank me. I feel fortunate that I got to meet Rabbi Kalmenson and his lovely wife in person at the 14th Annual National Jewish Retreat. My husband and I enjoyed our conversation very much, as well as the opportunity to attend his lecture on Jewish Humor.
It’s based on the My Encounter Series, and it’s a compilation of people’s encounters with The Lubavitcher Rebbe. Always enjoyable to read peoples incredible stories about their encounters with the Rebbe.
We recently acquired this book and I’ve been learning from it daily with my son. It’s a wonderful way to learn Rambam’s 613 mitzvot with your children consistently.
I did read more this summer, but some of the books I read were terribly disappointing, so I chose not to mention them. How about you? What did you read? Anything I need to get my hands on?
