Very Productive

Good Books to Read for Business & Pleasure * September 2014

This September, it’s about productivity.

Summer is almost over, people. It’s a matter of days.

Frankly, I’m happy. This summer wasn’t the easiest one for me, juggling the single mom and solopreneur things. I know, you’re crying tears of sympathy, but this was my first year in four not spending a month in France.

Since business has amped up (a very good thing), I’m glad we’re heading into fall. As the days grow shorter and colder, even here in California, fall is an excellent time to be productive. I won’t have to feel guilty spending time indoors, enjoying the rays emitted by my laptop instead of natural sunshine by the Mediterranean.

Good Books to Read


Write. Publish. Repeat by Sean Platt & Johnny B. Truant with David Wright.

As you may or may not know, I’m getting ready to begin publishing my work. I have started easing myself into “personal” writing from seven to eight am weekdays. This is, for someone who doesn’t have time to go on vacation, a huge challenge. For me Write. Publish. Repeat. was an inspiration. The message is that if we are willing to hone our craft and behave like business people, we can share our work and thrive.

If you would like to have this book for your very own, purchase Write. Publish. Repeat. at the Anna Colibri Amazon shop.

(Sweet) Pleasure

tiny beautiful things by Cheryl Strayed.

The reason tiny beautiful things is a sweet pleasure is that it’s written by an advice columnist named “Sugar.” Actually, her name is Cheryl Strayed (she chose that name herself — a woman after my soul) and is a successful author. Let’s hear it for successful authors! The advice she gives is very sweet and wise. Even when she is trying to be tough, this woman has a heart of gold. I know if you read this book, you’ll learn something about life, and something about yourself.

If you would like to have this book for your very own, purchase Tiny Beautiful Things at the Anna Colibri Amazon shop.


Mister Max by Cynthia Voigt.

As you know if you read these recommendations regularly, I’m not really a fan of teen horror or dystopia or whatever the genre popularized by Harry Potter is called. Mister Max is a sweet, well-written book about a boy who is forced by circumstance to get out of his comfort zone and get productive.

If you would like to have this book for your very own, purchase Mister Max at the Anna Colibri Amazon shop.

Enjoy these three books — see if you can read them all before the September 23 equinox (now that would be productive).
