When I was younger, bed time was 9 p.m.  But we could stay up 30 minutes longer if we were in our rooms reading.  I took full advantage of that extra 30 minutes and to this day, try to squeeze in a little reading before I go to bed. (which on most nights is still around 9 p.m).

Today’s reading habits are a bit different than they were when I was younger.  Sure, there will be the occasional “beach read” tossed in the mix and there are the books I need to read as part of my book club, but today’s reading selections include business newspapers, magazines and books, industry blogs and newsletters and of course, social media posts.

I just got back from St. Pete’s where I attended Counselors Academy, one of my favorite professional development conferences. The breakout sessions dealt with topics of interest to agency owners and managers.  And almost every one of the presenters referenced a book or two that they had read recently that had an impact on how they approached business and a life.

Our agency has an every-once-in-awhile book club where one of us reads a book and shares with the team.  You can find some of the reviews here.

President Harry S. Truman is quoted as saying “Not all readers are leaders, but all leaders are readers.”

Tell me, what are you reading right now?

  1. Abbie, reading is one of my favorite past-times as well. I’m currently reading a fascinating book called “One Day She’ll Darken” by Fauna Hodel. I met Fauna’s daughter at the nail salon in SF and her mother – who is white – was born in SF, then adopted and raised by a black family in Reno. All the time, she thought she was half black and half white. It’s a story of a struggle of race with some surprising twists and turns – but it’s all true. It’s such a page turner that TNT turned it into a special called “I Am The Night.” I highly recommend it. And all because I started a conversation with the person next to me getting their nails done! Cheers, David
