Snow on the mountains in late May.
Last week, northern Arizona experienced hail and snow almost every day, so I am more than ready for steady summer sunshine to be the blanket I curl up to and read with this summer.
So enough about crummy weather already, let’s bring on the books.
What having you been wanting and waiting to read this summer?
I don’t know about you, but I usually try to go with a theme for summer reading. Sometimes it’s Oprah’s book club picks, sometimes it’s fiction, sometimes it’s subject based, like health and wellness book.
This summer, however, will be different. This summer, I will read books that are intended to induce soul searching.
Not exactly a self-help book festival, but rather a chance to read the wisdom of others who can help guide me towards my dream–or help me define/redefine it in the first place.
In addition to the reading, I am also looking forward to taking my books with me on the open road. Now that I live in Arizona and the southwestern part of the country, I am so enthralled by this place–and I want to share it with you.
I’ll be updating you on southwestern travels and hitting the open road and mother road, Route 66, as much as I can.
So what books will be accompanying my travels and soul searching this summer?
Martha is one of Oprah Magazine’s life coaches. This uber-accomplished, yet easy-to-digest author teaches you step-by-step how to live up to your life’s potential with lots of exercises, examples and inspiration.
This mother-daughter duo have probably penned the book most women have been seeking. They discuss the unsurmountable pressures today’s women face in having to find the perfect career path and how to breakthrough it.
The incredible woman who started this blog also found time to write down her best dream wisdom. When I told her I was stuck with my own dream, she so kindly suggested I read this book. You should, too.
Seth is my former health coach. His new book is all about how to execute a purposeful, productive and fulfilling vocation in your life.
Now it’s your turn–What summer reading books will you be taking to the pool, beach or backyard patio with you?
