Summer of Intentionality Part 3: What I Want to Read

Curious about the Summer of Intentionality? Check out Part 1 :What I Want to Learn and Part 2: What I Want to Do

What I Want To Read:

I am participating in the Sacramento Public Library’s Summer Reading Program {and trying to win an iPad 2}.

You can too! If you read my books, let’s get together for tea {or online} to discuss.

My Summer 2011 Reading List

Good Enough Is the New Perfect by Hollee Schwartz Temple and Becky Beaupre Gillespie

Don’t miss It’s All Yoga’s author event with Hollee on June 25th!

Gifts of Imperfection by Brene Brown

Watch her Ted Talk – if this doesn’t make you want to read this book, I don’t even know what to say.

Beautiful You by Rosie Molinary

In addition to being an accomplished author, Rosie is also an adoptive momma. Her adoption posts are some of the best I’ve read.

What to Expect The First Year by Heidi Murkoff

Better find out what we’re getting ourselves into with Miss Ruby!

Toddler Adoption: The Weaver’s Craft by Mary Hopkins Best

One that’s been recommended by many.

Anything you think I should add to my list?

What’s are you reading this summer?

  4. I went out and bought The Gifts of Imperfection today. And am reading it now as part of my summer of dissertating. :-)

  5. I just finished reading The Gifts of Imperfection. So very eye-opening, and true, and difficult. So glad I read it. I second Rosie’s recommendations of the Happiest Baby and the Happiest Toddler books. In fact–if you’re interested–you can have our copy of the Happiest Toddler. And I’m definitely going to check out Rosie’s book. Thanks for the recommendation!

  6. Honored to be on your list– thank you! You know, I am not sure if I posted about these books in any of my adoption posts (thanks for the compliment), but you might get some good solutions for parenting from The Happiest Baby on the Block (and its sister book: The Happiest Toddler on the Block). So need to check out Brene Brown; you are now the second person I’ve seen mention her work. I need to get her books in my hands!

    • rosie: thank you for coming by and i so appreciate your suggestions. amanda (above) has a toddler version for us – man, this internet thing is magic! plus now she is going to get your book… awesomeness.

      we need to have a virtual book club when we finish the gifts – have you seen the ted talk? i can’t recommend it high enough.
