Disappearing Acts and Learning New Tricks

My summer started out great.

Reading list picked out, making progress, less going on at work so more time to catch up on my reading and do my personal challenge. Great!


I get called in to the manager’s office and told that I will be training in another department as well as doing my usual duties. Now do not get me wrong, it is a great opportunity, but the schedule is a whole other story.

My shifts went from predictable to wonky. And by the time I got home or went on my lunch break, reading was the last thing I wanted to do. I just wanted to sleep.

So after a few weeks I realized that I just need to change my method. Audiobooks. The great thing about my training is I am pretty much working unsupervised most of the day and I have minimal interaction with other staff members or customers. So I could work and listen to books with my headphones.

I am currently on my fifth book and it has been a really great experience.

My completed list so far is as follows:

  1. The Millionaire Next Door by Thomas J. Stanley
  2. Proof of Love by Chisa Hutchinson
  3. Firefighter Sea Dragon by Zoe Chant
  4. The Subtle Art of Not Giving A Fuck by Robert Petkoff

I look forward to finishing my fifth book which is Neanderthal Seeks Human by Penny Reid.

It has been a truly great experience, one I plan to continue, but paperbacks and my kindle pad with always be my first choice. And when my vacation comes, I will be turning pages and tapping away with glee.

Happy Reading!!!
