Hi folks!

I hope you are all enjoying fantastic adventures. My wife and I (well, mainly my wife) have been spending many sleepless nights lately with our beautiful new son, Sean Daniel Brassell. He weighed 6 lbs., 1 oz., but he is gaining weight by the minute, as this child can eat. I am so proud of how well his older sister Kate has been adjusting. If you do not have a family of your own, I highly encourage you to do so. Nothing is as rewarding.

Enjoy the books. I admit that I am sort of a freak, as I read at least a book a day (keep in mind that many are scratch-and-sniffs and pop-ups). You’d be amazed how much you can read if you do something as simple as turning off the nightly news, which I consider to be the most depressing and violent show on television.

I’ve been reading a variety of titles. One great new book that I am quoting almost daily is Harvey MacKay’s We Got Fired!…And It’s the Best Thing That Ever Happened To Us. MacKay managed to get all sorts of successful people to tell him about their lowest points, and the book proves to be inspirational and instructional in how to overcome adversity and persevere. I once spoke to a group of teachers and told them that I thought résumés should highlight our low points rather than our accomplishments, as I believe that we learn a lot more from our mistakes than successes. That is what MacKay’s book is all about (at over 350 pages, unfortunately, I cannot put it on our “lazy readers” list). If you get a chance, I highly recommend you pick up a copy of this book.

Anyhow, enjoy this month’s book selections below. I hope you are all reading some wonderful books. Make sure to tell me all about them. If you're an author or a publisher and would like to send me review copies of your book(s), please send them to the address listed for authors and publishers.
