The Summer is Going to be Filled with Great Reading

I stopped at my local bookstore today and found a wonderland filled with many new books by some of my favorite authors. I had a great time looking through the new titles. I had to purchase a few including "Early Warning" by Jane Smiley, "The Stranger" by Harlan Coben and "God is Always Hiring" by my all time favorite local author, Regina Brett.

When all of you are making plans for summer travel and trips, make sure and include a stop at your local bookstore. I can't wait to start reading while sitting in the sun on my patio, while sitting on the beach or while sitting at a table at an outdoor table at my favorite coffee shop. It's going to be a great reading summer.

Marketing Fifty Shades of Gray a Success

It started out as a three book series. Then social media took over and turned the series into a must read, bestselling story. Next, came the movie. Then social media took over again. Now there's a bestselling soundtrack according to Twitter, https://twitter.com/AOL/status/568803770286501889/photo/1.

I can't image there is someone who hasn't at least heard about the books, the movie or the soundtrack, but in case you haven't, here's a link to the books on amazon.com, http://www.amazon.com/Fifty-Shades-Grey-The-Trilogy/dp/0345803485.

I did read the first two books of the series and gave up on the last one. Don't know why exactly just got a bit tired of the storyline. I bought all three books at one time so it may have been better to purchase them and read them one at a time. The movie has gotten mixed reviews so I think I'll wait for the release on blue ray to watch.

It's making history in more ways than one. The marketing machine on Fifty Shades of Gray has made it a phenomenon. The author may never have to write another word.

Books about Horses and So Much More

Why does a review post about books on horses belong on a business book review blog? Readers will be amazed at how horses are being used to teach leadership and communications skills these days.

I've been reading three books in particular in this first go around. They are not new books but they are representative of how horses are used to teach horse sense to humans.

Horses have played major roles around the world for centuries. They were a vital form of transportation until the invention of automobiles. Horses have fought in battles and wars and they carried people from the east coast to the west and southern coastlines to help build populations across the U.S.

Today, horse handlers are finding the characteristics of horses can teach humans many valuable lessons.

The three books I'm currently reading include:

  • Horses Don't Lie - What Horses Teach Us About Our Natural Capacity for Awareness, Confidence, Courage and Trust by Chris Irwin with Bob Weber
  • Dancing with your Dark Horse - How Horse Sense Helps Us Find Balance, Strength and Wisdom by Chris Irwin with Bob Webber
  • Horse Sense and the Human Heart -What Horses Can Teach Us about Trust, Bonding, Creativity and Spirituality by Adele von Rust McCormick, Ph.D. and Marlena Deborah McCormick, Ph.D.
These three books are only the tip of the iceberg on the topic of horse sense. Check them out at the library and let me know what you think of the lessons we can learn from these amazing animals.
