This week I’m celebrating a rich book stack.

I can’t believe I have COLBY SHARP’S new book in my hands. I opened it late last night while I was waiting for my daughter to get out of band practice. I’m torn between wanting to give it away to every single person I know. I keep reading one more bit and then a little more. This is going to be a sweet resources for teachers of writers in all grades.

Brene Brown’s new book was released. I can’t wait to read it. I know I should try and savor it, but instead I’m sure I’ll gulp it in one big bite.

One day I will be in the same room as Simon Sinek. I hope you know his TED Talk regarding The Golden Circle. This gem is written by David Mead & Peter Docker and guides you in finding your Why…and helping teams and organizations find their Whys. It’s written like a workbook and I’m inspired as a human and a writer.

You may remember that I’ve been inspired by cacti. Christy Rush-Levine did and she gave me this sweet calendar. I’m using it as a writing notebook of sorts — collecting all kinds of ideas each day as possibilities to write about. My brain is exploding with ideas and there is no way I will ever remember them all. I like the way I’m encouraged to collect snippets so I can have a place to jump off into blog posts, articles and book chapters.
If you haven’t had a chance to get the preview of my new book, feel free to do it now. Just add you email to the box below. Right now Stenhouse is offering a free eBook with the pre-purchase of a hard copy

  1. I can't wait to read Colby's new book. It look amazing! I, too, have Brene's book. I think I'm going to listen to it because I love hearing her voice. The last book and author is new to me. I'm going to watch that TED talk right now! Thank you for sharing!

  2. I'm slowly reading your book, Ruth, and enjoying it very much. Sometimes (I'm sure you know) I think that the chapters apply to more than writing! Thanks for these other books, too. I know about Colby's new book, but the one by Brene Brown is new, and sounds wonderful. I'll check out Simon Sinek, new to me! Happy Weekend!

  3. So jealous you were on the receiving end of Colby's book. My pre-order has been placed and I will just have to be patient and wait until spring. (Or perhaps you could bring it to St. Louis and I could get a sneak peek in November.)
    I'm so glad you are jotting all the ideas that bounce into your life on the calendar. One day they will be sent into the world. Hugs!

  4. Love the book recommendations – all new to me (except yours of course). I keep trying to shorten my want-to-read list, but it's impossible! I need to get back to collecting more snippets. You always inspire me!

  5. Creativity Project is awesome! I'm savoring it too. Lots of the responses to the prompts have me thinking which I really love. I'm so excited for Brene's new book! I have to order it, I can't wait! Also, a shout out to Crystal for helping me remember to post this weekend. 🙂
