I am a voracious reader and every week I come across either a book, online piece or website I want to share with others. I’ve decided to curate these gems and highlight them on Friday. I hope you find these faves as insightful as I do.
- I loved Susan Cain’s, “Quiet: The Power of Introverts in a World That Can’t Stop Talking.” She is publishing a new book in May of this year called, “Quiet Power: The Secret Strengths of Introverts” (A guide for introverted kids and teens). She talks about her upcoming book in a question and answer format on NPR, titled “How Parents and Teachers Can Nurture The ‘Quiet Power’ of Introverts.”
- “The idea that listening to another opinion can help fortify your own is almost unheard of these days.” Megan Daum writes about the unlikely connection between Antonin Scalia and Ruth Bader Ginsburg in her piece in the LA Times, “Scalia and Ginsburg: The End of a Beautiful Friendship.”
- “I never knew a son could be a soulmate.” I was in tears reading Lexi Behrndt’s piece, “Soulmate” in Brain, Child magazine. There is beautiful wisdom in this poignant essay.
- There is a quiet power in Patti Smith’s words. I urge you to check out both of her books, “Just Kids” and “M Train.” If you want a brief preview, read “Patti Smith’s Advice About What Really Matters In Life Will Give You Chills.”
What were some of your favorite reads this week?
Now, I was just going down to clean my basement- a task I have put off for months. Looks like I have to delay again. These pieces look too good to pass up!
Hope you enjoyed reading these pieces, Stacey!
You picked especially poignant ones this week! I think I’ll spend an hour on these right now.
These were insightful reads and I learned something from every one of them.
