Making the Most of Monday: Get Your Read On!


If you are new to the magazine, Making the Most of Monday is a regular part of our features. Mondays  signify one important thing, a fresh start. It's like a new years resolution at the start of every week.

Hopefully by Monday you've taken some off time during the weekend to rejuvenate, spend quality time with loved ones and friends, which makes Monday your chance to really get to work and make the most of your week.

It has been awhile since my last Making the Most of Monday feature, as in the start of fall 2009! I think I was in a Monday funk, which is totally not like me. Mondays are fresh, Mondays are new. I should have been practicing what I preach right? Well, today I woke up feeling good. It finally felt like New Years to me. Spirits are good this morning so I'm going to take advantage of it and enjoy it. 

Lately, I've been focusing on adding more education and reading to my own life. I've started to keep a book list. I think it will be a great idea to see what I've read throughout the year and it will feel good to cross them off my list after I've read them. I thought I would share my book list with you and if you have any that you'd like to suggest, I'd love to see them. 

These books are not listed in my Amazon store. I plan to just link directly to them. Maybe after I read them I'll add them to the store.

2010 Book List

I know I'm forgetting some and this certainly won't be enough for the year so I'll add them to this list as they come to me.

I hope I've inspired you to create your own book list for this year.

Have a great Monday!

I am exactly on the same wavelength today. Scurrying around with my to do list and not wasting time is a huge priority. So much to do and learn and improve in.
Happy reading to you!

As Thomas Jefferson stated "I cannot live with out books".
In fact, I would much rather read than write. ;)

I used to keep a log of all the books that I read. I really liked looking at it whenever I would add a new one. I usually like historical novels. My fav author is Leon Uris. He's great :) Right now I'm reading "Julie & Julia" and liking it!

Hi Katie! Happy New Year!

This past December, I read My Life in France by Julia Child. It was really good. After seeing the movie Julie & Julia, I think they got an enormous amount of detail from Julia's book. I recommend it, although I'm partial to Julia. I grew up with her on PBS.

Ooooh, the Clutter to Clarity book looks really interesting---I'll have to look for it at the library tomorrow. I like to keep track of my books over at Goodreads.com, mostly because I think it's fun to move a book from the "currently reading" to "read" shelf. :D
