Books I’m Reading Now

Here’s what’s on my desk:
Ladies Who Launch: Embracing Entrepreneurship & Creativity as a Lifestyle. My husband discovered this book for me. It’s fantastic– a way to re-examine what you are doing with your career and any other component of your life. There are also Ladies Who Launch meetings across the country. Check out Ladies Who Launch.

The Mother’s Guide to Self-Renewal: How To Reclaim, Rejuvenate and Re-Balance Your Life
by Renee Peterson Trudeau. This workbook helps you re-examine your life, your priorities and how you spend your time. On line you can find out information about joining or starting a PRG, or personal renewal group. Personally, this book helped me realize that I needed to make time to exercise; I remembered how much I missed taking modern dance classes. So I’m giving it a go again…after a four year hiatus. Ouch.
Now…for some chick-lit. Momzillas by Jill Kargman. On the surface, this is nothing like The Mother’s Guide, but in many ways it has the same message. A new mom searches for her place in the hyper competitive world of being a mom in New York City and finally finds her calling. I’m impressed by Kargman’s ability to take the little details of life…the things we all see every day…and weave them into a narrative.
Motherhood, The Second Oldest Profession. This is an Erma Bombeck classic from 1983.
Finally, A Perfect Mess: The Hidden Benefits of Disorder. This book taught me to embrace the inherent state of disorder in our apartment, and look at it as an indication of fun, energy and creativity.

I LOVED A Perfect Mess. It allowed me to relax a little and to not feel so bad about some sentimental things I have lingering in plastic bins.
I will definitely check out Momzillas. I need some lighthearted reading. I read Harry Potter over the weekend which was an emotional rollercoaster and am now reading The Road which is depressing stuff.
