It's Monday! What Are You Reading? Meme GraphicLast week, I reported that I was reading The 3-Day Solution Plan by Laurel Mellin, Play of Passion by Nalini Singh, and Head First WordPress by Jeff Siarto. I finished the Singh novel and loved it as much as expected. I got stuck with the 3-Day Solution Plan because I couldn’t get myself prepared for the full-blown 3 days as outlined in the book, so I decided to give myself a break and do only the parts that most interested me. I’m on Day 2, but the odd energy of today with an approaching snowstorm, prevented me from working with it as much as I hoped, so I’ll try Day 2 again tomorrow and then move on to Day 3. I seem to have temporarily abandoned the WordPress book, but it sounds like that’s just the sort of thing that Bloggiesta is designed for, so I’ll pick it up again then.

Besides the Singh book, I started and finished The Year of Magical Thinking by Joan Didion. We’re going to see the play next Sunday, so I’ll wait until then to write more about it.

Currently, I’m reading Never Say Diet by Chantel Hobbs as part of my resolution to read 34 books that support my healthy lifestyle in 2011. I’m also reading Think and Grow Rich by Napoleon Hill for a book club that Chris Brogan is running through his newsletter (at least, I think that’s where I saw it). That will be the first electronic book I have read cover-to-cover. And, tonight, I’ll start The Warmth of Other Suns by Isabel Wilkerson for my real life book club.

If all of that isn’t enough to keep me busy through a snowstorm, I picked up a stack of books at the library. Some people get milk and bread when the forecast is for snow; I get books.

    • This WordPress book is a bit more for businesses, I think, with background on how WordPress works under the hood. Although, there are certainly some hints along the way. For more of a hints book, I liked WordPress for Dummies.

  1. I really like your New Year’s idea of reading 34 books that fit your healthy lifestyle! Sounds like you’re already reading some great ones! Thanks for stopping by my blog. 🙂

  2. Hi,

    I’m happy you’re reading The 3 Day Solution Plan, but the book and the method have been updated to be easier and power powerful.

    The latest book is Wired for Joy and there are groups, website tools, etc. to help you do it. The new “functional medicine” is about the chemical effects of “getting to Brain State 1” where everything is easier.

    Also, if you have a drive to overeat (and who doesn’t), we developed a new Survival Circuit tool that gives you techniques for rewiring the addictive drive for comfort food. It’s discussed in the Wired for Joy book, too.

    Thanks for adding to the JOY of my day!!!
