Goodreads Challenge (25/25)
Done and done. Today I reached my goal of reading 25 books in 2012.
The final book was Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince (book #6). I am glad to have completed it over a month early, but it did cut into my NaNoWriMo start time. To keep my sanity through November I’ve decided to sit this year’s writing challenge out, however I won’t be completely absent from that world. I plan to lurk on the various NaNo sites and forums and watch my fellow writers zoom toward their goals. Who knows? I may even stop by a local write in.
Are you doing NaNoWriMo or NaBloPoMo?
Mini-review: Start with Why
My rating: 3 of 5 stars
“Start with Why” by Simon Sinek is an analysis of how visionary leaders are able to cultivate success and others are not. they do this by simply communicating the concept of why they believe what they do which draws others who believe the same thing to their cause. I enjoyed the first 65 pages or so, but then book seemed to start over and repeat the same thing (using the same examples). I would recommend this book for those who want to experience the concept in the author’s TED talk in a different way, but I tend to agree with Loy Machedo’s review.
