Jun 17, 2011 Summer Reading
Here’s what’s on my list. What’s on yours?
For the beach/lake/plane I plan to re-read some of Wallace Stegner’s work, beginning with Pulitzer Prize-winning Angle of Repose. If you haven’t read Stegner, dubbed “Dean of Western Writers”, begin with this one. Stegner is considered one of the premier chroniclers of the 20th Century Western American experience. He made Palo Alto his home where he founded Stanford’s Creative Writing Program.
My office reading is limited to short bursts I can do at my desk. I try to watch a couple of TedTalks and read a few blogs daily. Here’s a couple of my favorite business blogs:
- Peter Bregman never fails to deliver sage advice on how to lead and how to live. I love his writing style and his message. Though I have never met him, he seems like the kind of guy you would want to have as a friend, boss or mentor.
- Seth Godin is always at top on my list, and a must read. Short, sweet, powerful and brilliant (that might describe both him and his blog!). Seth also offers up his summer reading list – check it out here.
What’s on your list? I’d love to know. Please share your comments.
Happy Summer and Happy Reading!
