Read with Us: My November and December Picks

Believe it or not, despite the busy holiday season, I’m still trying to squeeze in some reading time.  I wanted to be sure and reach my 12 books for the year goal. It doesn’t sound like a big goal but when you have two little kids and run a website, it’s a HUGE goal. :)

In November, I mentioned in my Creating Good Habits series that I was starting to work on creating a weekly cleaning schedule. Several of you referred me to FlyLady. And I am so thankful to you all for that. While digging around on her site, I found that she has a book out called Sink Reflections. I’ve been reading it off and on and getting quite a bit of inspiration from it. I’m motivated now that my house can look great all the time and not have so much cleaning chaos to it. Since my plate is always pretty full this time of year, I’m just taking some notes of things to work on for next year. But I really do love this book and highly recommend it.

A few weeks ago, I was flipping through my iPhone and remembered I had the Amazon Kindle App. I was so lucky to have snagged a free version of The Simple Dollar: How One Man Wiped Out His Debts and Achieved the Life of His Dreams (no longer available for free, though. Sorry!)

I always try to read some type of finance book towards the end of the year. It gives me the inspiration I need to put my heart back into getting back on track with our budgeting and paying off our house. I’m only partway through this one, but so far, it’s pretty good.

These are my book picks for November and December. I’ll be doing a giveaway for them later so be sure to keep your eyes open for it.

I haven’t decided if I’m going to proceed with my book picks for 2011 or not. Have any of you found these picks to be useful? Time to chime in before I discontinue the series!
