Stacking the Shelves – July 2020

#stacking-the-shelves

Stacking The Shelves is hosted at Tynga’s Reviews & Reading Reality. It’s all about sharing the books you are adding to your shelves, physical or virtual. This means you can include books you buy in physical store or online, books you borrow from friends or the library, review books, gifts and of course e-books!

This month I have received several great book recommendations.

On the non-fiction shelf, there are a few business and personal growth books:

  1. Wisdom of Crowds (currently reading) This one has been on my TBR for a long time. I finally downloaded the audio book and I am glad I picked this one up. It helps me, as a manager, remember that diverse teams of creative and independent thinkers make the best decisions. I aspire to make that happen for my team and this book is a great reminder.
  2. Radical Candor (currently reading) This book has been recently recommended to me. Again it is a management book and seeks to help you balance your role as a manager with your human side.
  3. Chain of Title: How Three Ordinary Americans Uncovered Wall Street’s Great Foreclosure Fraud (TBR) Finance and fraud stories are always of great interest to me. It amazes me how some people manage to get away with so much without inviting trouble before things finally go out of hand of the smartest crooks.
  4. Trade Is Not a Four-Letter Word: How Six Everyday Products Make the Case for Trade (TBR) This book claims to help understand modern trade without a PhD in Economics. I could get behind that and it is now on my TBR list.

On the fiction shelf, there are some new books and there are books I want to reread:

  1. Little Women – I have been wanting to reread this one for a really long time but this month I am reading the Little Women Cookbook. So many amazing parts of the book are mentioned there that I simply can’t resist picking this one again.
  2. Night (The Night Trilogy, #1) I recently learned about this one. A friend called it a classic and I had not even heard about it! Needless to say I am piqued and have added this to my TBR list.
  3. The Secret of the Nagas (Shiva Trilogy #2) It has been a while since I read the first in this series and was mesmerized by it. Since then, Amish has written several bestsellers. I have just been reminded what an amazing writer he is and so I aspire to finish reading this Trilogy
