It’s summertime, and the reading is easy! I love to crack open a good book when I’m catching Florida sunshine by the pool or killing time in an airport. Recently, I reread some old classics that I read as a kid. Funny thing is, this time around I got way more out of Ayn Rand’s “The Fountainhead” and “Atlas Shrugged” than I did as a kid. I highly recommend them.
I’ve got a dozen books loaded up on my Sony Reader and waiting for me this summer. I’m like a kid in a candy store when I visit the online ebook store. Some of my books are just for fun, and others are selected to help me think outside the box or enlarge my skill base. James Bryce, a British politician said, “The worth of a book is to be measured by what you carry away from it.” I agree with his assessment; I like to carry a good message away with me after I close a book. (I love Any Rand’s books because they are fiction filled with romance, intrigue, plot twists, and philosophical and political messages that really make you think about your own values and beliefs.)
Because this is a business-related blog, I’d be remiss if I didn’t mentioned a few great reads for career women. So, click here and take a look at my post over at associated content. You’ll find a review of five fabulous, fun, and inspiring reads for women. Let me know what you think! Happy reading!
