In my never-ending battle to declutter, I am reading Miss Minimalist: Inspiration to Downsize, Declutter, and Simplify Miss Minimalist Inspiration to Downsize, Declutter, and Simplify by Francine Jay which is a collection of artcles written by Francine Jay. Very practical and interesting! I usually have a pen in hand as I'm going along to jot down notes.

Paul Pursell (goodreadscompaulpursellmcpl) | 4 comments I've been reading Everything That Rises Must Converge by Flannery O'Connor – a collection of powerful short stories in the southern-gothic genre. I'm really enjoying it so far; O'Connor was a phenomenal writer.
I'm also working through On the Art of Writing Copy by H.G. Lewis, which is an extremely helpful and informative guide that is helping me at my copywriting internship.

Kevin | 53 comments I finished Unfair Advantage: The Power of Financial Education by Robert T. Kiyosaki yesterday.

Basic underlining concept of the book is: get financially educated.

He doesnt repeated himself as much as he does in his other books though he still repeats some topics multiple times, which is bit annoying but not as annoying in this book.

Quiet: The Power of Introverts in a World That Can't Stop Talking is PHENOMENAL. I started listening to it on the drive to work. I've learned so much about myself and others. I find myself looking at situations more thoughtfully now, understanding just a little better my own reactions. It's a very well-researched and well-written book and I recommend it for both introverts and extroverts alike.
