Today is World Book Day. It’s a special day for me because it’s a time to celebrate books, authors and, of course, reading. About 100 countries take part in World Book Day each year. As you’ve probably guessed, I love to read books…especially the traditional type. I believe I’m like most of you in that regard, according to the New York Times; I read more printed books than e-books. That’s why, today, I’m sharing with you my seven favorite paperback books, ranging from productivity to wellness. I’ll share the Amazon links, so you can check them out yourself. Here goes:
LEARNED OPTIMISM – HOW TO CHANGE YOUR MIND AND YOUR LIFE, by Martin E. P. Seligman: With a more joyful outlook on life, the author explains that we are in a much better position to enhance our well-being.
GOAL BETTER (A PRODUCTIVITY JOURNAL), by Modern Script Designs: Essentially, it will become YOUR book.
DOMINEZ VOTRE ANXIÉTÉ AVANT QU’ELLE NE VOUS DOMINE, by Albert Ellis: In the pursuit of wanting to become a better person, a better wife, a better professional, a better creative, a better friend, a better daughter, a better tourist, etc…some chapters are helping me. Apart from jetlags, this book gives me excuses to have more fun and not care so much – especially if I know I am doing the best I can every single day. J’ai une routine du tonnerre.
LONELY PLANET CALIFORNIA 8th Ed, by Andrea Schulte-Peevers: My daydreams consist of the sound of ocean waves, beautiful landscapes, nonalcoholic cocktails, plenty of sunshine, bright colors, a zest of philosophy, baguettes and croissants, a ton of romance, dynamic music, gentle pranks, smooth horseback riding, sweetness and appreciation…and California, at the moment.
CONTENT MACHINE, by Dan Norris: For those of you who want to excel at content marketing, this is worth a read. How I perceive marketing has fluctuated over the past few years. As a result, I took back older books that I used to love and they invigorated me to go forward.
CANDIDE, by Voltaire: A classic piece of satirical work required as a school reading, penned by a truly great author and which has stood the test of time.
SO GOOD THEY CAN’T IGNORE YOU, by Cal Newport: Is life about loving what you do or doing what you love?
Bonuses (not available in the paperback format as of yet):
THE ART OF DIPLOMACY, by Bruce Heyman: The book will bring you one of the most important bilateral relationships in the world—the relationship between Canada and the US.
THE MOMENT OF LIFT, by Melinda Gates: The book introduces us to remarkable women and shows the power of connecting with one another.
