What is the Best Book that You Have Read Recently?

By Sixty and Me December 29, 2015 Mindset

Like many women in our community, I am always looking for good book recommendations. I love books that make me look at the world differently.

It doesn’t even matter what genre they are. Sometimes, I love to curl up with a cup of tea and a good novel. Other times, I love to walk in the park, while listening to a psychology or history book. Do you do the same?

In any case, it occurred to me recently that I don’t do enough to help the women in our community to share their book recommendations. This is a shame, because, as a group, we do a lot of reading!

Well, there’s no time like the present, so, I’d love to get the conversation started now. Please take a few minutes to let us know about one book that you have read recently that you loved.
