Now that the weather is nice I feel like I have been reading less or I am just too busy watching The Bachelorette… either way I usually like to write this post after reading 4-5 books but I seem to have been reading slower than usual so I only have 3 books to share with you. I am hoping to step up my reading game again.
Ellen is a hypnotherapist looking for love, she meets Patrick and feels like she finally met her match. When he tells her he has a stalker he is worried she will run for the hills, except it is actually the opposite and she becomes increasingly interested in his stalker and wants to get to know her better…
This book is a great beach read! Like most of Liane Moriarty’s books she grabs your attention right away and keeps you wanting more. I liked the mystery of not knowing what the stalker might do next. Once you get into it it is definitely a quick read!
When I Stop Talking, You’ll Know I’m Dead- Jerry Weintraub
Jerry Weintraub is a self-made, Brooklyn-born, Bronx-raised impresario, Hollywood producer, legendary deal maker, and friend of politicians and stars. In this book we follow Weintraub from his first great success at age twenty-six with Elvis Presley, whom he took on the road; to the immortal days with Sinatra and Rat Pack glory; to his crowning hits as a movie producer, starting with Robert Altman and Nashville, continuing with Oh, God!, The Karate Kid movies, and Diner, among others, and summiting with Steven Soderbergh and Ocean’s Eleven, Twelve, and Thirteen.
I was surprised at how much I enjoyed this book. I actually bought this book for Jeff but he has yet to pick it up.
I really enjoyed reading about Jerry and how hard he hustled to get to where he is today and how many really amazing people he got to work with a long the way.
Do The KIND Thing- Daniel Lubetzkey
In Do the KIND Thing, Lubetzky shares the revolutionary principles that have shaped KIND’s business model and led to its success, while offering an unfiltered and intensely personal look into the mind of a pioneering social entrepreneur. Inspired by his father, who survived the Holocaust thanks to the courageous kindness of strangers, Lubetzky began his career handselling a sun-dried tomato spread made collaboratively by Arabs and Jews in the war-torn Middle East. Despite early setbacks, he never lost his faith in his vision of a “not-only-for-profit” business—one that sold great products and helped to make the world a better place.
I grabbed this book from my office once I started working for KIND. I wasn’t required to read it I just thought it would be a good idea to see how the company I was working for started. I am really glad that I picked up the book, from an entrepreneur stand point it was humbling to see how far this company has come and just how much it has grown. Reading about the things of the past and being a part of the present success is a really cool experience. I recommend this book for anyone who has the entrepreneurial drive or is curious about how a company starts from literally nothing to a successful business.
What have you read lately?
I joined a book club with a bunch of Wellness women in Boston and our first book is 10% Happier by Dan Harris and I am looking forward to diving into that book this weekend!
