Book It!!

So am I the only one who remembers the Book It program back in elementary school? I used to LOVE getting those free pizza coupons for Pizza Hut!!  Not to mention, my mother was a reading teacher so I kind of had no choice but to grow up reading. Unfortunately, as I got older I haven't been able (or made the time) to read as much as I would like.  But lately, I've been trying to turn that around.

Right now I have 2 books I'm reading that I thought I'd share with you all in case you are looking to read more too! The first book is Treasure Your Silent Years by Dale Carnegie Bronner.  When I tell you this book is awesome, I mean it! My co-worker shared this with me one day and I love it.  It's written by the pastor of Word of Faith Family Worship Center and it really speaks on how to deal with the "silent years" in life and how the Lord uses these times to help us grow. 

The second book I'm reading is a very popular book and national best seller and for good reason...its called The Tipping Point by Malcom Gladwell.  My husband suggested I check it out and once I started reading it, I couldn't put it down.  I literally read half this book in a car ride back home from DC one day.  It basically talks about the tipping point phenomenon and how little things can make a big difference.  It will definitely make you look at things differently.  It's a must read!
**Okay that's my educational message for the month.... now back to our regularly scheduled program! :)


  1. I never finished the Tipping Point but I read Outliers which is PHENOMENAL!!! I also started reading Blink but never finished it but it's time to read another book so I'm gonna pick up Tipping Point again

  2. Yeah I still have to finish Tipping Point too! I may have to check out Outliers though
