Lots of travel this quarter, so seems like a lot of these pages were turned on planes. Much of it was for business but there was one trip down home to Nova Scotia because a very dear, very loved uncle passed away. Plenty of tears and hugs and laughter and tea and squares.
The photo above is one I snapped on that trip. It’s the boring everyday view from my cousin’s brother-in-law’s camp, which is an easy 5 minute winding drive through the woods from my cousin’s home. Gorgeous, right?
Anyway, on to the books. I didn’t write commentary for any but the one I need to warn you against. Oh, and the one I read for work. Assume they are perfectly enjoyable if I didn’t blurb otherwise. What can I say? There were deadlines and pressures and squares to eat! I feel like I’m missing a couple, but here’s what I have in my brain or my notes at the moment…
My Favorite Husband by Pam McCutcheon. Here’s the thing: I have a compulsion to finish the books I start. I hate leaving books half-read and have seldom done so. The crapitude of this book, however, broke me. Maybe it gets really, really good after the first few chapters? I’ll never know.
The Devil Died At Midnight by Cheryl Bradshaw.
Live and Let Chai by Bree Baker.
The Art of Client Service: The Classic Guide, Updated for Today's Marketers and Advertisers by Robert Solomon. Okay yes, this one is an outlier on my list. It’s for work, but read on my own time so here it is. It’s actually the second time around for me reading it; this is a new updated edition. Many hard-learned lessons in this book from an industry veteran. I’d highly recommend it if you’re in marketing to get great advice or if you’re considering the field in just about any capacity to get a feel for the culture.
