Dons' musings about O Fallon Mo : So What Are You Reading?

So What Are You Reading?

So What Are You Reading?

Well, I don't read very often and when I do it is normally something to do with motivation or personal development.  Very seldom do I read anything just for pleasure that is for my lovely wife to do and trust me she will read enough for the both of us.

I have just finished two books and for me that is a bigger milestone than my first blog post.

The first one is,

All Buts Stink!  How To Live Your BEST LIFE and Eliminate Excuses written by Walter Bond.  This is a very short book, under 100 pages, and a very easy read.  This is a very good read and will help you with getting rid of the BUTS in your life.

All Buts Stink by Walter Bond

 The second book is,

Bulletproof Principles For Personal Success written by Mike Schlappi.  Two things that you may want to know about Mike Schlappi, one is he is a 2 time Paralympic Gold medalist in Basketball and 1 Bronze medal in Paralympic Basketball.  The other thing is he is wheelchair bound and does not view himself as handicapped just disabled which are two different things in his opinion.  His motto is, "If you can't stand up, Stand Out".  This is another short book under 100 pages and it has pictures. 

 Bulletproof by Mike Schlappi

I hope that you enjoy these two books by two inspirational writers.

Dawn,

All I did was read a chapter a night and if I really felt ambitious I would read two.

I am thinking that you will like both of them and then you will be passing them around.
