Getting ready

May 02, 2012

For these months, I  decided  to turn aside to a different bookshelf- 
Self Help

I gotta be prepared for the upcoming "Welcome to the real world" battle. Thus, a little help from these paperbacks would be a good idea. So here's the list of what to read, though I started some of them already.

The Happiness Project by Gretchen Rubin
I actually finished this and after reading it, I feel like doing a Happiness project of my own. Though I still know how to. I have so many ideas but they seem so cluttered on my brain. "Organize!" must do that as soon as possible. (and oh, that's was part of Gretchen's January resolutions) So, that's how I should start it.  
Anyway, what I love with this book is that while I was reading it, I'm thinking that I was just having a conversation with a friend on a hot afternoon. I wonder how many times I nod, said "yes, that's right!", and laugh every time she points out something that seems similar with my thoughts.. 

How to win Friends and Influence People by Dale Carnegle
An old book I borrowed from my aunt a couple of years ago. But since I still don't have a good relationship with books way back in high school, I wasn't able to finish it. Since its part of the list of recommended self-help books (based on my research), why not give it a shot.

Be the Miracle: 50 lessons for Making the impossible possible by Regina Brett
I always see this book at the best sellers shelf every time I passed by a bookstore. Aside from it's eye candy cover, The title also caught my attention. I have a thing for lists. So, I am currently reading this one and I'm on the 5th lesson. Let's see if this one will make a big difference on me.

7 Habits of highly effective people by Stephen Covey
I've been hearing this book for a  long time. Fortunately, I've found a cheaper copy of it on Booksale (haven of budget-friendly books!)  185 pesos for a hardcover. Not a bad deal, I guess.  

After finishing this set, my next target would be most probably something about Mythology. I find it interesting after my high school friends and I talked about it last Sunday. But we'll still see if I'm gonna have a change of mind.
