So Many Books … So Little Time

Like many readers I know, I’ve usually got several books going at a time. I don’t read a lot of fiction these days, so I don’t have trouble keeping the plot points and characters in the right place (although I have had that happen!).

Currently on my nightstand:

  • Man’s Search For Meaning, by Viktor E. Frankl. I’ve read this book, many years ago. Initially, I read it for Frankl’s concentration camp survival story, but now I’m reading it for the shorter section on logotherapy. I’ve become fascinated with meaning, and that essay is — if I remember correctly — an excellent introduction to finding the meaning that I believe is inherent in everyone’s life.
  • Reinventing the Body, Resurrecting the Soul: How to Create a New You, by Deepak Chopra. I’m not very far into this book, but it’s already made me stop and think. I totally believe that our minds have a big influence on our bodily conditions, so the book is (so far) easy for me to follow. I love the subtitle, too. I like the current me pretty well, but the idea of creating a new me? Love it!
  • The Fire Starter Sessions: A Soulful + Practical Guide to Creating Success on Your Own Terms, by Danielle LaPorte.  I read this book right after it first came out and absolutely loved it. Now, I’m reading it again in an online book circle.  I’m actually doing the worksheets this time through. This chica’s got some pretty revolutionary ideas on success and happiness — and how to achieve both. I need to get the audio version of the book, simply because I’ve heard that it sounds like poetry when Danielle (she doesn’t known it, but we’re on a first name basis!) reads it out loud. After listening to the short video she has on her website (A Credo for Making it Happen) dozens of times, I can hear the poetry of her words and her voice in my mind.
  • The Coaching Blueprint by Kate Swoboda (aka Kate Courageous). This is a workbook for coaches aimed at helping them build their practice. I’ve been following Kate (we’re on a first name basis, too!) for a long time and I’ve watched her grow and develop what appears to be a thriving coaching practice. I had the pleasure of meeting her at Christine Mason Miller‘s launch party for Desire to Inspire (Kate is one of the contributors to that very special book.) and she was as gracious as she is lovely.

That’s what I’m currently reading — don’t even get me started on what’s on my library hold list!

    I loved Man’s search for meaning. I read it for the first time last year. It had somehow escaped my radar untill then. The next two are on my kindle still to be read.
