Ever since Bret and I met, he has checked out for on CD for me to read/listen to in the car. I have probably listened to/read more than a couple dozen books since.....Hmmm, I never actually have analyzed the impact of this (all the books I've read in the past 4 years) -- but I just got the idea to write another blog just on listening to/ reading books, stay tuned!
I am not working right now so I have a little more time. For the last month, I have been working on finishing my thesis (!), getting organizing , getting used to my medication and relaxing (I have a doctor's appointment at the end of the month and I am not sure what to expect; it has to do with the seizure I had in August). So what else have I been doing with that "little more time"? I've been reading. A lot! (My driver's license is suspended, so I don't listen to books, that is why I've been actually reading them ;)
Last Saturday, Bret and I went to the Santa Monica library. He picked up movies on DVD and books on CD; I walked over to the new books, non-fiction section (my favorite). The Charisma Myth: How Anyone Can Master the Art and Science of Personal Magnetism by Olivia Fox Cabane caught my eye, so I checked it out. The book is 250 pages and it's super interesting! It's all about psychology and self-awareness of body language and emotions. This is my kind of reading, I love psychology! I am 2 short chapters away from finishing it; I want to finish reading it tonight!
