All Things Books: March Round-UpFriday, April 01, 2016
All Things Books
"Books can be dangerous. The best ones should be labeled, 'This could change your life.'" Helen Exley
When was the last time you picked up a book that really did change your life? Maybe just for the day, the week...? I know many people who search for such a book, can't find it, and therefore they just stop picking up books to read. It's sad. I, on the other hand, keep picking up books seeing which book with truly impact me...
Now here we are at the end of another month. March had some slow spots for me, mostly because the weather started to trick me into spring, just to slam winter back in my face. With spring, a new season has brought new life and new hope, and a ton of new books!
Just like last month, I have been coming across some great posts from others that have helped to uncover new destinations for me in the world of books. In case you are wanting some quick reads, some new perspectives or even just some new suggestions for books to read, I would love to share them with you.
Please consider seeing yourself as a lover of books, a join in the goal of finding a book you love each month this year.
- So I guess technically this one is from February, but I just saw it this month - Modern Mrs. Darcy put together a list of nonfiction books that you can read in a day... as she says these are "20 Life-changing nonfiction books you can read in a day."
- Since I'm sharing older articles, might as well share this flashback... Bustle shared a list of books they claim everyone should read in their lives from late 2015... "17 Quick & Easy Reads That Everyone Should Read At Least Once."
- Clearly I am all for finding books for all audiences, but this next one was interesting to me because I pick up book that inspire me because they are written from Christian authors - this list, from Popsugar, is completely secular... 25 Feel-Good Books That Will Boost Your Mood.
- If you love the classics, but are looking for something new, here is a great collection: 15 Newly Released Adult Books to Read Based on Your Favorite Classic Novels.
- For those of you who are big fans of series, this fun article from Barnes & Noble could totally be worth checking out: 5 Fictional Worlds That Are Bigger Than They First Appear.
- And because no list is complete without some books to read with your kiddos, this one covers it all: 100 Best Read-Aloud Books by Scholastic.
I hope you found a thing or two from that list that caught your eye, maybe you could reserve a book at your library, or add to your Goodreads to-read list. If you want some encouragement as you find books you love, please join our group on Goodreads, we'd love to be there as you fall in love with books.
