Noteworthy Reads

  • The Happiness of Pursuit: Finding the Quest That Will Bring Purpose to Your Life by Chris Guillebeau - I highly recommend this for anyone seeking to do more, has an inkling there is more to life, is yearning to find and pursue their purpose. Guillebeau also has a podcast called The Side Hustle, which inspires listeners by sharing stories of people who have turned their side hustle into their main bread and butter.  

  • The Storied Life of A.J. Fikry by Gabrielle Zevin - Loss. Surprises. Friendship. Mystery. Love. Oh, and books! While the story of A.J. Fikry isn't deep and is mired in somewhat lackluster logic, it is a quick and easy read that packs in a mix of happenings and fills a need for a decent story that doesn't require too much thought or time. 

  • The Paris Wife by Paula McLain - This was an eye-opening look into living in the glamorous and sometimes unsettling world of Ernest Hemingway from his first of four wives. The Hemingways become the golden couple of a group of creatives living in Paris in the 1920s and cavort with the likes of Gertrude Stein, Ezra Pound, and F. Scott & Zelda Fitzgerald. 

  • Lift by Kelly Corrigan - I've had this by my night stand for years. After hearing praise for Corrigan's work, I finally picked it up. While it didn't knock my socks off or impress me much, I'm going to check out some of Corrigan's other works in hopes those deliver more impact.
