Earlier this year I decided that no matter how busy I was that I was gone pick up a book and read.
When I was a child, I used to love to read, but since I’ve gotten older and there’s so much technology and distractions, I’ve gotten out of the habit of just sitting down and cuddling up with a good book.
Last year, I bought a few books that I wanted to read and I said I was going to read them all this year, but of course I didn’t quite get around to it.
I purchased a few books by Iyanla Vanzant, Peace from Broken Pieces, Yesterday, I Cried & In The Meantime (which I love) as a way to improve some of my spiritual knowledge, inner self and being. I didn’t get around to all of them but did finish In The Meantime and it was great.
I re-read ‘You Can Create An Exceptional Life‘ because I wanted to go back and revamp some of my affirmations. Affirmations are really good to practice for your overall life, health and success. It really taught me about speaking things into existence and how to control my thoughts.
I also purchased Tyrese’s book ‘How To Get Out Of Your Own Way‘ which I have yet to pick up and read, but a friend of mine tell me it’s really good so I look forward to reading it next year.
I had the pleasure of reviewing a book by Angela James, Love’s Triangle, and baby that book kept me interested and on my toes from cover to cover. I love a book so good where you can actually imagine the scenes and what’s going on as you read. I haven’t read a book that good since The Coldest Winter Ever by Sister Souljah.
With the New Year fast approaching, I’m sure I won’t get a chance to knock out the other books that were on my list, but I definitely will start off tackling them at the beginning of the year before I decide to buy any more.
I think reading is good especially when it comes to stimulating your mind.
Books I plan on reading for 2013 include:
- Peace From Broken Pieces
- Yesterday, I Cried
- How To Get Out Of Your Own Way
- Power & Beauty
- Trouble & Triumph: A Novel of Power & Beauty
Be sure to look for my review on ‘Love’s Triangle’ later this week.
What did you read in 2012? What are you planning to read in 2013???
