      My morning #businessbookview. Been trying to read a bit each week, keep the saw sharpened. ๐Ÿ“š I tend to read different books at different times: reflective and devotional after my prayer time, then sometimes business in my first hour of work, and later in the day is hodgepodge depending, but usually books for review or fun (or both). How do you read? ...

      Iโ€™m saw Leonard Sax speak are the end of February, right before all the fun started. I ordered Boys Adrift that night, but didnโ€™t start it until months later. I finished it in a day. ๐Ÿ“š Girls on the Edge was much harder to read and has been a journey. Maybe itโ€™s because my girls are older, or that Iโ€™m a woman. Whatever the reason, it was good. Needed. Convicting, as I expected it to be. ๐Ÿ“š What reading has your mind whirring? ...
