Can you believe it's already November and Thanksgiving is only 3 weeks away? Where has the time gone?

 

Well, I've been super-busy with several work-related projects, but forced myself to start a new book. The title I've chosen is, Click: the magic of instant connections by Ori Brafman and Rom Brafman, (Broadway Books, 2010). I'm hoping to learn how to connect better with people in different situations. I do a fairly good job connecting right now, and there are times when I'm just shut down emotionally for no apparent reason. That isn't good when you need to be at the top of your game and you let great opportunities pass you by because you got momentarily shy.

 

How about you? What are you reading right now?



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

Quoting Kenyana9:

Hey...Reading is a habit I would like to cultivate,kindly suggest something that is captivating and would also be a learning experience for me...The last book I read was an autobiography of Nelson Mandela~Long Walk to Freedom,the one before that was 'Infidel',an Autobiography by Ayaan Hirsi Ali.Thank you :-)

 


I liked these, you might too.

 

1. “The unthinkable: who survives when disaster strikes -- and why,” Amanda Ripley.

2. “The survivors club: the secrets and science that could save your life,” Ben Sherwood.

3. “Outliers: the story of success,” Malcolm Gladwell.

Finished reading Click: the magic of instant connection. Lots of interesting things in this book. Didn't realize how easily influenced we are from a subconscious level. I think a lot of the things in this book are used in, "The Mentalist" tv show. I also didn't realize how similarity and locality can play such a big part in people feeling unexplained connections with each other. This is a book I think one should read if you want to understand how to make a lasting impression in any social situation.

 

What will I read next? Hummmmm?............. BeWell ;-D

~~ BeWell ~~

 

As we had mentioned in Your October Inquiry, we were trying to get caught up with our magazine subscription from the seventies....entitled " Playboy ".  Progress has been made, with the Many time consuming Articles that We Loved.

 

As for November 2012, we are into the other subscription wherein the Captivating Articles include , ....to mention but a few ;

 

1)  Sir Roger Moore.....and amongst others...;

 

2)  The Seersucker Social Club in Washington  D C .

 

3)  The Patent that changed The Cut of The Necktie ?

 

4)  The Palm Beach Look of the 1950's ....of which I was often accused in the 70's ?

 

5)  How to choose The Best Shaving Brush....sounds petty but important, just ask the ladies

 

6)  Why Jenson Button is Not A Playboy

 

7) Profligate Socialite.....Lady Docker......and much more..

 

We hope this answers your question and as a courtesy to your followers we hereby attach a snapshot of the cover to our November reading material. We just Looove those articles..!

 

Best Regards,

 

~~ S L ~~  &  Partner  ~~ I C ~~

Kenyana,

 

Welcome to the Blogs. Some books I have found interesting are:

 

1. Rage of Angels by Sydney Sheldon.

2. The God Father by Mario Puzo

3. Cry, the Beloved Country by Alan Paton - you fing this complementary to the Mandela autobiography.

4. Weep Not Child by Ngugi wa Thiong'o

5. The Client by John Grisham

6. The Pelican Brief by John Grisham

If anything else comes to mind, I will let you know. I hope you enjoy them as much as I did when I read these ages ago.

 

Liv.

You might do as I have and compile a list of the books mentioned in BeWell's monthly book blogs.  Only those books that you might be interested in.   Her first book blog did not have the month in the title, but was in July.  I think a few others have mentioned having lists as well.

I pickied up from the library today, “The Emotional Intelligence Quick Book,” by Travis Bradberry and Jean Greaves.  I think you recommended this one. 

 

 

 

I also picked up, “His Needs, Her Needs”: building an affair-proof marriage / Willard F. Harley, Jr   This book was recommended by GrnEyesOC. In PrettyBaby’s blog titled, “I have never cheated…..”

Just started STALKED by Allison Brennan... 

 

Hope you are doing well BE WELL... 

 

HI MONICA and Newcomer KENYANA... 

 

WELCOME TO THE BLOGS... 

 

KENYANA... Several avid readers here so I am sure someone can suggest something for you... 

 

You appear to like "realism"... the only thing I could recommend at this moment is HAVE A LITTLE FAITH... By Mitch Albom... Easy read, but true story... Gave me an entirely new prospective on Jewish culture as welll as encompassing others beliefs... I found the Rabbi absolutely admirable! (as well as the pastor who had some severe hardships) But the Rabbi and I think a lot alike.. ;)

 

BEST WISHES TO ALL~~  



Hoping,

 

I'm doing well, just been a bit swamped with work projects lately. Thanks for all your suggestions. Let us know what you think of Stalked when you finish........... BeWell



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

Quoting MissMonteCarlo:

I am reading J.K. Rowling's Casual Vacancy. I have to say though I'm not really gripped by this book. It is very well written but the plot seems rather dull and quite depressing. However, I'm only into the first few chapters so may continue a little further and see if it improves.

 

Sarah :-)



Sarah,

 

Thanks for sharing about Casual Vacancy. I was thinking about reading it.

 

Looks as if J.K. Rowling should stay with fairytale fantasy fiction. I just love her success story. Wish I could create an empire like she did with Harry Potter. ;-D.... But I don't think I have a magic wand like hers. Ha!............BeWell....;-D

Hi Kenyana,

 

If you would like a great learning experience,  may I suggest a new book I've read, Today I Begin A New Life--Intentional Creation: Og Mandino for the 21st Century by Dave Blanchard. You can read about it at the Ogmandino. com website. The book is not about Og Mandino, who wrote the best seller,  The Greatest Salesman in the World. It's more about the profound principles of life that he discovered through his life's journey as a road warrior. Blanchard explains the life principles as they apply to the 21st Century, through an interesting collection of modern stories.

 

The book helped me determine things that are blocking me from the doors to success like no other book ever has. There are interesting antedotes in it for redirecting your life so you can create what you want. It also helped me develop more compassion for other people as I understand why they do the curious things they do. I think this book will eventually put a lot of therapists out of business, and keep the divorce rate down. Ha! ........ BeWell....;-D



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