It’s Monday! What Are You Reading? 11/7/16

7 Nov

As I expected, it was an extremely busy work week, so I only got a chace to read Jubilee by Patricia Reilly Giff about a young girl who grows up with her aunt.  The girl suffers from selective mutism and only talks to a dog she saves on the island they live.  As she comes to terms with being different, learning her mother isn’t as far away as she thought and what it means to be a friend, Jubilee’s aunt stands by her to help her grow – never pushing her to speak, knowing she will when she’s ready.

This week, although always busy with work, I hope to spend some time reading and visiting with family for a long weekend! I’m going to attempt Decide: Work Smarter, Reduce Your Stress and Lead By Example by Steve McClatchy (hopefully this doesn’t take as long as Start With Why). And a friend lent me Ready Player One by Ernest Cline, so I really need to get that read and given back before it gets sucked into my own collection of books and lost forever!
