ThePeopleAlchemist Edit: books can be your best friends, keeping you company and helping you to dream, and your pocket mentors – every page a mini-lesson waiting to be absorbed – #amreading December
Hello, my lovely readers and reading community.
I’m sure you know by now that I love love books, and I read like my life depends on it. And as a published author I read even more; to learn more about the craft and see how other authors are developing their stories.
BOOKS ARE NOT JUST FOR LEARNING
I have mentioned many times before that, if you need to solve a problem, answer a question, or learn a new skill, there’s a good chance you can find what you’re looking for in a book. But to make the most of it and find your ‘virtual mentors’, you need to digest the books, ask them questions. What did the author intend when writing? Then make notes, summarise, underline…. treat them as an experience. A conversation.
And so usually I talk about non-fiction/self-help books in the hope that are as useful to you as they are to me.
This month though I’d love to share with you my love of both non-fiction/self-help and fiction – beautiful stories, excellent reads. Perfect to cuddle up with some nice cocoa. Or perfect for gifting.
Life is a never-ending journey, with experiments and lessons at every corner and a book to match them – ready?
