My bucket list goal to read 12 books by the end of 2019 is off to a good start! Crazily enough I'm already half way through, which I'm pretty blown away by since March is here super suddenly if you ask me...
I think less TV consumption has aided me in getting this far so fast. Here's what I've delved into thus far:
- Living Nonviolent Communication by Marshall Rosenberg
- Eat, Pray, Love by Elizabeth Gilbert
- Standing at the Edge by Roshi Joan Halifax
- Gluten-Free Baking Classics by Annalise G. Roberts
- The Help by Kathryn Stockett
- The Art of Gathering by Priya Parker
I've loved each book in its own way, but as a former event wrangler, my latest read, The Art of Gathering is spotlighted today. It's so cool to think about how a small gathering of four or a huge conference requires equal finesse and attention to detail...as an aspiring dinner party host, I learned so much about how I can care for guests and make the experience special.
To work towards my goal, I've been visiting the SF Public Library and using the Libby app. I'm also encouraged by the Indie Bookstore Finder website, as supporting independent retailers is an important mission for me.
