It's hard to believe another month as buzzed by.

I just started reading Emotional Intelligence 2.0 by Travis Bradberry and Jean Greaves. The reason I chose this title is that I've run across several men recently who refered to their Emotional IQ and this little book. So I thought perhaps the Universe was giving me a message to read it. ;-D Maybe yes? Maybe no? I'll report back soon about what I've learned.

 

How about you? What are you reading right now? And share with us how you like it and why you are reading it................... BeWell



BeWell and wishing you only the best ! ..................;-D

BEWELL<<<< I finished the OCEANS APART book weeks ago and could not find a book to sink into so I am reading a small version of "YOGA for DUMMIES".. It has my picture under the word dummy? Hmmm.. Wonder if there is something to that? HA! Glad you saw the grandbaby recently... I better still have a few more years til that happens, but will I ever love it!! :)))) 

 

CLASSY~~~~ ROMANCE... I don't read romance that often but read one about a year ago.. and did it ever get my blood pumping.. (and NO, it wasn't an "article" in Hefners story book! LOL) I read Bertrice Small .. TO LOVE AGAIN...

BeWell -- You can find Richard Wiseman on the internet.  Just search on his name and you will find it among lots of stuff.  He has a regular ongoing blog for want of a better description.  It is about as much fun as his books. 

Forgive me if you have already mentioned this.  I forgot if you did.

Be Well...

 

Just found a book that I haven't read for ages. It's called Poplollies & Bellybones: A celebration Of Lost Words" written by Suzan Keltz Sperling. It's all about antiquated words we seldom or no longer use. They're unique and funny and many should have never been laid to rest.

 

It can be found on Amazon (and read on site if you wish) if you Google it.

I have just finished a brilliant booked titled "A Street Cat Named Bob." It is a true story about a recovering drug addict on the streets of London who encounters a stray cat and they become companions and help one another. It was one of those kind of books you just could not put down. The cat would follow the guy when he went out busking and became the centre of attention with passers by. There are video clips on you tube if you look for bob the street cat. There are also television interviews with the pair too. Just adorable!!

Quoting rmac22:

BeWell -- I found (by interlibrary loan) the first book you mentioned, "Quirkology," by Richard Wiseman.  So far, I like it.  I liked his others that I have mentioned so that is not surprising. 

 

 

RMac

 


Hi RMac,

 

 

 

So excited you were able to order Quirkology through the interlibrary loan system. Isn't it wonderful to know that we can read almost any book because of that wonderful system. Hope you enjoy Quirkology as much as I did.

 

 

 

FYI... Richard Wiseman is going to be speaking in Nashville at the CSI Conference October 25-28th. You can read about it at csiconference . org. I accidentally stumbled upon the announcement today. Ha! Thought you'd be interested. I may try to read another of his titles, Did You Spot the Gorilla next......Enjoy..........BeWell



BeWell and wishing you only the best ! ..................;-D

Quoting Timeless2012:

I am reading Madame Bovary by Gustave Flaubert which I've read a few times, great literature.  I highly recommended it! it was also made into a movie more than once...French movie....



Timeless,

 

Hurray for reading a classic! That is one that I don't believe I read when I was on my classic literature quest. Please let us know your thoughts when you finish it. I'm looking forward to hearing all about it............... BeWell

Quoting rmac22:

I am currently reading, “The LUCK FACTOR:  Changing Your Luck, Changing Your Life:  The Four Essential Principles,” By Dr. Richard Wiseman.  I am reading it because I really liked “59 seconds, think a little change a lot,” by the same author.  I am maybe about 1/4th into it.  I am having to reread a bit to keep track of what I am learning, but it is interesting.  Changing your luck would appear to be a bit difficult in as much as it would involve changing your personality.  It is nice to know however, that the reason some people are perpetually lucky and / or unlucky is not due to anything deep dark and mysterious.  We all could perhaps, with profit, start behaving more in the ways that lucky people do.

 

RMac 


Hey there rmac,

 

 

 

Please forgive me for not responding sooner. Had a business trip pop up and it took me a few days to catch up once I got back.

 

 

 

Luck Factor sounds wonderful. Wiseman is a wiseman, isn't he? Will try to find a copy and check it out once things slow down for me a bit. ;-D Hope all is going well for you............. BeWell

Quoting fireglow:

I just finished reading Middlesex by Jeffrey Eugenides.  It is a compelling story of genetics, male, female, and intersex.  It makes one examine what we understand as gender, sex, and social roles.  Very good!



Hello Fireglow,

 

Forgive me for getting back to you so late. Been out of town.

 

Thanks for sharing about Middlesex. Sounds like it has some excellent perspectives. Will try to check it out soon...... BeWell

Quoting Hoping4Love2000:

BEWELL! 

I had a book called "EMOTIONAL INTELLIGENCE"... By Daniel Goleman... in my hand the other night as well as "BURY THE LEAD" BY David Rosenfelt.. I selected the latter.. 

I am guessing your book is similar in nature to the book I almost selected... 

Let me know if you learn anything from it, as I find most men have the "Emotional Intelligence" of a GRASSHOPPER! Bwahahahaha!! :) 



GREAT pic of the grasshopper Hoping!

 

Sorry it's taken me so long to get back to you. I've been out of town on business and it's taken me a few days to get back to normal.

 

I'm sure the Emotional Intelligence book I read was good. I just couldn't get into it. Had a lot of other stuff pop up that took my focus away. Plus it was a library book and to get the full experience of the book one needed to take the test which is only available to people who buy the book. Oh well.... BeWell ;-D

BeWell...
 
A friend just sent me a link to preview a new cookbook titled "50 Shades of Kale." The preview is written by a Dr. Drew Ramsey with recipes by Jennifer Iserloh, a well known cookbook author. The preview Dr. Ramsey wrote, if you didn't know it was about a vegetable, would rival anything in a XXX love story. If you Google it, there are sites that offer a preview. What a gas! Never expected to hear that kind of smooth-talking in a cookbook! Read the intro and tell me what you think. Iced tea would be a good choice for your beverage.


Windrider,

Just recently got back from a business trip. Will check out that Kale book for sure. Thanks for suggesting it. I'm sure others on this blog will appreciate it too....... BeWell

Quoting Forever_Classy:

BeWell, hope all is well with you.  How is that baby grandson of yours?  No books this month, been travelling too much.  I love reading about the books this blog talks about such as 50 Shades of Kale. 

 

Windrider, I glanced at the preview on site as you suggested and this is one book I will definitely purchase.  I eat a lot of kale and usually go to the local market to purchase the dried variety which I add to various dishes like soups, rice, salads, etc.  I also juice kale when juicing vegetables, totally my favourite drink.  Ice tea?  Definitely worth a try!  I will let you know once I am able to find the book.  Hope all is well with you also.



Hi Forever_Classy,

All is well. I've been traveling too, for business, but it was more like a much needed vacation. I was working on a project with old friends and in an elegant facility in a spectacular setting.

 

Thanks for asking about my baby grandson. He's almost 6mos. old now and is doing quite well. My daughter invited me to come for a week, so next week I'll be off traveling again. Can't wait to hold that sweet baby in my arms. He's laughing now and has discovered his toes, nose, and fingers and more.... ;-D

 

I'll have to check out that kale book. I just wish they hadn't called it 50 Shades of Kale. Being a book marketer I don't like it when publishers ride on the coat tails of other books' successes. That's stealing fame in my book. Oh well...... BeWell ;-D

Classy...

I'm emailing you the link. Click on the book on the left side of the page and a screen will come up so you can read parts (all?) of the book. The introduction is what cracked me up...it's priceless. Let me know what you think.

Hi BeWell,

So far just the blogs. They're difficult enough to keep up with lately. Cunningham's Encyclopedia of Magical Herbs is sitting on the sideline waiting to be read when the brewhahaha ends...which I think it has.
