Five Non Writing Books That Improve Writing

I read a lot. Not surprising since I am a literature major and a writer, I suppose. However, it wasn’t until the last couple of years that I discovered the magic of non-fiction work. Now my reading time is divided almost evenly between fiction and non-fiction. I can’t get enough of reading about what other people have researched and lived.

Book Discussion: The Bromance Book Club

If you have ever thought about reading a romance novel, but are unsure the genre is for you, pick up The Bromance Book Club by Lyssa Kay Adams. The characters are flawed but likeable, the premise is interesting, and the story kept me turning pages. In short, it is a fun read.

Book Discussion: Who Moved My Cheese

I was introduced to Who Moved My Cheese by Spencer Johnson, MD several years ago via a text from a friend. It said, “So, every day they went to Cheese Station C, found no cheese, and returned home, carrying their worries and frustrations with them.”

When I receive a random quote text, I immediately determine where it came from and how I can learn more. The book is short and could easily be read in a few lunch breaks, but the message is big and can be applied to all areas of life.
