What I've Been Reading

As a 'new' Personal Trainer and less than part time blogger, I decided I needed to increase my daily reading, first to know more for my clients and second to be more well read. When I became a mother, reading started to slip through the cracks and I read only 3-5 books in two years. Reading has always been something I love to do so this year I decided to try and read one book a month, and so far I'm ahead of schedule!

Here are the most current books that I buried my nose in  :

This book was fantastic. I started reading it because I wanted to start blogging more about my personal training. There were a few times that I felt he was telling me things that I - as a seriously part time blogger - would never use, but most of the stories William told were so well thought out and beautifully written. It did really make me feel like I could be an author! The way Zinsser describes how to be a writer was so easy to understand. I know I won't be putting out any novels anytime soon, but thanks to this book I know my writing has improved - more than a little. The biggest thing I took from this book was just to WRITE. Sit down and put thoughts to paper (or type them). The more you do it, the more you will learn your style and be able to write more clearly - even my texts have become more clear and concise!

I honestly couldn't put this book down. I still can't believe half of the things Ronda has done in her lifetime. She wrote this book so honestly and descriptively. It opened my eyes to how hard you have to work to EARN that position as the best. I genuinely cannot do this book justice - just go read it. Seriously.
