I try to get in a few books each quarter, but February and March were so “whack” that I fell painfully behind!  So, I made a new list of books I want to read in April, May and June in 2016 and I wanted to share with you in case you wanted to get on board.  All of my reaching choices are not business-related — A girl’s got to get some personal development in too!

So, here are my 7 books for the next three months — If you are interested in checking them out, you can click on the title link (above each book picture) to purchase them from Amazon.

Contagious: Why Things Catch On by Jonah Berger

I’m almost finished reading this book (and, I heard the author speak earlier this year).  It’s worth the read for entrepreneurs.


The Power of I Am: Two Words That Will Change Your Life Today by Joel Osteen

I heard Joel Osteen speaking to Oprah about the power of words, “I am . . . .” and it really resonated with me.

Talk Like TED: The 9 Public-Speaking Secrets of the World’s Top Minds by Carmine Gallo

I teach in the hospitality department at Prince Georges Community College, and I recently noticed that Ted Talks are successful in holding my students’ attention.  So, I am looking into my own teaching style.  Has anyone read this book?  Let me know what you think.

Year of Yes: How to Dance It Out, Stand In the Sun and Be Your Own Person by Shonda Rhimes

Go Set a Watchman: A Novel by Harper Lee


Quiet: The Power of Introverts in a World That Can’t Stop Talking by Susan Cain

This book is actually a re-read for me, but I definitely believe it is worth it!


Take care!  Love & Soul Always, Kay
