Kindle Book Deals!

It’s a great day for some Kindle Book Deals! I have found that Sundays tend to have the best daily kindle deals and today was a goldmine. When I saw that two of my 5-star non-fiction favorites were deals of the day, I knew it was going to be a good one.

The Third Rainbow Girl by Emma Copley Eisenberg

Book Summary:

In the early evening of June 25, 1980, in Pocahontas County, West Virginia, two middle-class outsiders named Vicki Durian, 26, and Nancy Santomero, 19, were murdered in an isolated clearing. They were hitchhiking to a festival known as the Rainbow Gathering but never arrived; they traveled with a third woman however, who lived.

The In-Between

Hello! I hope you are enjoying this time between Christmas and the New Year. This week of the year always throws me off because the kids are home from school but Lucas is quite busy at work during this time of year, so he doesn’t have a lot of time off.

So while it is festive, it is also kind of like normal…except we have none of our regular routines or activities scheduled! We tend to thrive off of this stuff, so each day is kind of a mixed bag. 😉

Holiday Breaks Expectations vs. Reality

Checking In:

Good morning! I hope you had a wonderful holiday and that you have some time to kick back and relax now. We hosted Christmas Eve and Christmas so there wasn’t a lot of reading time around here but I am hoping to have a low key day today. Lucas is back at work and the kids are excited about their new gifts and are having one of their buddies over, so I am hoping the stars align for some lazy daytime reading on the couch.

The Power of Showing Up 

Book Summary:

One of the very best scientific predictors for how any child turns out—in terms of happiness, academic success, leadership skills, and meaningful relationships—is whether at least one adult in their life has consistently shown up for them. In an age of scheduling demands and digital distractions, showing up for your child might sound like a tall order. But as bestselling authors Daniel Siegel and Tina Payne Bryson reassuringly explain, it doesn’t take a lot of time, energy, or money. Instead, showing up means offering a quality of presence. And it’s simple to provide Read more...

You’re Not Listening by Kate Murphy

At work, we’re taught to lead the conversation.
