3 Books To Read For The Month of September
As the year is quickly coming to an end, we all want to end it with a bang. This means improving ourselves physically, emotionally and of course --- intellectually. This can be either, learning a new skill, enhancing our vocabularies, or expanding our general knowledge; all of which can be done by reading a good book.
I know, finding a good book is hard; especially when you're working and realistically have no time to spend hours scouring titles in your local bookstore. So, to help with that, here are some recommendations for your September reading list!
1) Weekend Language
This book is all about how to tell a good story. It moves away from the more traditional methods of presentation, and praises the use of simple conversational dialogue which can lead to great communication. This approach is less conventional; but, it teaches readers how to be more memorable and relatable.
Isn't this what we all want?
Whether you're a CEO headed to a major meeting, a manager responsible for leading team presentations, or novice speaker looking to win over a crowd, this ones for you!
2) How to Win Friends and Influence People
A book can literally change your life if you let it, and for me this one already has! I actually came across this book while watching a YouTube video about success and the amount of tips that I've learned is insane! From exploring best ways to deal with people, to learning how to listen to others and pay attention to them, this book has enhanced my life tremendously. In fact, I find myself using its best practices on a daily basis.
Of course, I know every "How-to" book promises to teach you some great secret to success, so i was a little skeptical at first; but I have been actively incorporating the tools suggested in real life scenarios, and guess what .... they actually WORK! I have this book on Audible from Amazon, so if you have an Amazon account, I would suggest getting the book this way for free.
3) Return to Mango Hill
I have to admit, I was skeptical about including this one because [DISCLAIMER] it was written by my great-aunt BUT after actually reading it, I couldn't help but include it!
Return from Mango Hill is a complete change of genre from the first two books I've recommended, but, it still keeps with the theme! This pseudo - autobiography tells the life of Sammie who ventured from the islands to Paris France. It tells the story of overcoming and following your dreams. This is something we all can relate to because everyone has something they want to pursue in life and has struggles on the journey to achieve their goals. The book showcases the need to keep pushing and maintain a positive attitude despite misgivings and is a wonderful flagship piece for life and love.
