Sunday Salon...Read Along

The Sunday

The Tipping Point by Malcolm Gladwell is a great book that I am re-reading ...The subtitle of this book is How Little Things Can Make a Big Difference.
I enjoyed this book when I first read it and reading again at a new place in my life has been rewarding for me. I love to watch people and how they respond to one another...this book will make you see those interchanges in a new light! Change is inevitable but it is human nature for most of us to not respond favorably when we feel it is happening.

Because I like driving myself somewhat crazy and I just plain love to read...I am reading three other books right now...all good!
I am missing a great Sunday School class today because I am working but the book we are reading for that class, and while I am only on the second chapter it has been very interesting! It is by Paul F. Knitter and it is called Without Buddha I could not be a Christian.
It's probably an intriguing title to Christians and to Buddhists but I have found it to be sensitively written and very thought provoking!

I am reading Water for Elephants by Sara Gruen for Blogging book Club this month and for my brand-new-no-name-yet-in-real-life-thank-God-I-have-it-book-club!
I do like it and I will share more later in the month!

The fourth book I am just finishing up is a must-have for any young woman leaving college or as I am, any woman reentering the work force. It is Cathie Black's Basic Black...this book is terrific and has given me just the pep-talk I needed!

I am off to work today and I am actually happy to as I will be at the Florida Fairgrounds working at a booth for work ...which is fun for me!
Happy Sunday and Happy Reading!

I read Water For Elephants and remember totally enjoying it, but if you asked me right now what it's about I couldn't even tell you! The rest of the books you're reading are definitely not my cup of tea. And how do you read 4 books at the same time? Arghhhhhhhhhh!

I'm reading Stephen King's Under the Dome at the moment and I'm lurving it!!!!

Btw... what kind of job did you get? I don't remember you saying.

Justine :o )

Thanks for sharing what books you are currently reading. I'm glad to konw that I am not the only bookaphile on the block. So, you made me feel better about having so many books going. Have a great week.

BOOKS BOOKS BOOKS! I always have to be reading something - for a while there, I wasn't getting my reading done, and life just wasn't the same *smiling* Now, every night I have a book on my bedside table and I read each night...

Justine, I think you would be surprised about the other books but...books are just like cups of tea not everyone likes the same flavor! :)
Reading is just the best, right?

I haven't read any of these but I'm always looking for new things to read and I always read more than one book at a time. I'm going to pick at least one of these up.

The Buddha Christian book looks like it would be very interesting. I, also, catch myself reading several books at once. And I always have a couple of magazines handy just in case I find I have an extra minute (what is that???).

Water for Elephants was so good. I am not familiar with these other books so I'll have to check into them!
