Summer is dying down, although September tends to be the hottest month of the year here by the beach in Los Angeles. I devoured so many books this past month, thanks largely in part to traveling over 30,000 miles across the United States this past month delivering speeches, including a keynote to my largest group ever – over 5,000 employees of Edinburg CISD at the Convention Center in McAllen, Texas. It was awesome!
Can I give you a great little reading tip? One of my favorite publishers nowadays is Minibük (www.Minibük.com). They literally create zillions of little books you can fit in your pockets, and the books are delightful. I can go through close to a dozen on some flights. They read like super-interesting and helpful brochures. I’ve read a potpourri of their titles, from Deborah Gilboa’s Teach Responsibility: Empower Kids With a Great Work Ethic to a variety of hiking guides by John McKinney to Beth Terry’s Thinking About Thinking to a clever six-Minibük with business card series by speaker Tony Jeary that lays out for audiences an action guide for his message (ingenious!).
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.
Have a wonderful September, and enjoy your books!
