I see you!
You've got (at least) three books on the go.
That sensible business book. A book next to your bed. And one that sort of floats between rooms. That you pick up and read one chapter of at a time. Or two.
Reading is great. If only you could actually finish some of these books you start!
THAT's what we'll be doing in the Pick 'n Mix Book Club.
Come and join us in Pick 'n Mix, the community for creative and multi-passionate women. And join Book Club every other month!
What do you say?
I LOVE reading. I literally have read hundreds - if not thousands - of books in my lifetime. Books on art and spirituality, careers and change, business and leadership, feminism and happiness.
Do you want to know my Top 5 books on career change or what I thought were the best books I read in 2021? Or the six books that shaped my life?
Yeah, I probably wrote a blog about it. Or a book review
I can't wait to meet you all in Pick 'n Mix and talk about books. And hear what YOU thought of it!
We're reading about Happiness!
Not one but TWO books

Solve for happy
What Amazon says:
How can we make it easier to be happy? Using the latest cutting-edge research, Professor Paul Dolan reveals that wellbeing isn't about how we think - it's about what we do. By making deliberate choices that bring us both pleasure and meaning, we can redesign our lives for maximum happiness - without thinking too hard about it.
Solve for Happy is the equation for happiness. A startlingly original book about creating and maintaining happiness, written by a top Google executive with an engineer's training and fondness for thoroughly analyzing a problem.
One of Solve for Happy's key premises is that happiness is a default state. If we shape expectations to acknowledge the full range of possible events, unhappiness is on its way to being defeated. To steer clear of unhappiness traps, we must dispel the six illusions that cloud our thinking (e.g., the illusion of time, of control, and of fear); overcome the brain's seven deadly defects (e.g., the tendency to exaggerate, label, and filter), and embrace five ultimate truths (e.g., change is real, now is real, unconditional love is real).
By means of several highly original thought experiments, Mo helps readers find enduring contentment by questioning some of the most fundamental aspects of their existence.
