Time to Read

by Jenni Kraft

I know I have expressed my feelings of missing school in a previous blog, but I think I’ve found a rather simple solution to this concern. I’ve actually started reading books for fun! I have found that I am more interested in books that have some connection to development rather than story books (at least for now). Granted I haven’t gotten very far as I have only started this past week, but I can tell you that I have already begun to enjoy it! I actually stared with “The Happiness Project” by Gretchen Rubin at the start of the year and noticed that I hadn’t made very much progress. I wanted to finish the book since I knew that every time I began reading it, I would have trouble putting it down. Now it’s been 4 days and I’ve only got 50 pages left! This had me wondering a book store with a friend who suggested a few other books. The “Tipping Point: How Little Things Can Make A Big Difference” by Malcolm Gladwell has started off more business-y than the others but has a positive message about the little things. I’ve only gone one chapter in but I’m excited about all the positivity. The next book on my list is “The Contrarian’s Guide to Leadership” by Steven B. Sample. My friend read this during her graduate program and said it was a great read, so I’m looking forward to it. My new goal is to have all three of these books (if not more) finished by the end of the year.

I think this will be a good challenge for me as, in addition to all the job responsibilities, I am dyslexic and struggle with reading all the time. My positive thought is that if I continue reading for myself I will surely improve little by little… which will surely help with my future plan for a doctorate degree J

Are there any books you would recommend?
