#NewYearBooks Final Check-in — 4 Comments

  1. I read Big Magic, and had hoped to be more active in the Resolution Reading Challenge, but I’ve become unexpectedly unemployed, so job searching has been taking up a lot of my suddenly increased amount of free time. Thank you for all your event organization to try to get us off on the right foot for 2016!
    My New Year’s resolution was to Think Positive, so the book I read for the Resolution Reading challenge was to help me in the job search, Brag: The Art of Tooting Your Own Horn Without Blowing It by Peggy Klaus. It’s a quick read, and I found it helpful. I have been working on the exercises that she recommends, such as creating a “Brag Bag” and answering the questionnaires from the book to develop into customized “bragologues”.

  2. I’m almost done with Red Moon by Miranda Gray, about the power of the menstrual cycle. Still have some reading left, though tbh it’s mostly for the sake of completeness, like going back where I skipped ahead to a more interesting part.

    • Red Moon looks like the book I wish I had in my twenties when I was working through my identity as a woman. For a few years, I charted my cycle with the moon phases and it was a powerful thing for me.
