What I’m Reading [September 2015]

Project management books

I’m still reeling from having a library round the corner from the office and I’ve been there several lunch breaks since discovering it last month. I don’t get long for lunch so I’ve taken to picking things from the New Arrivals shelves.

This month I picked up *. I read all Meg Cabot’s Princess Diary stories when I was not that much younger and now Mia is all grown up and still getting into scrapes. If you enjoy aimless chick lit and are familiar with Princess Mia Thermopolis of Genovia and her friends then you should definitely get this. If you have pre-teen girls in the house then introduce them, starting with The Princess Diaries.

I also read Delirium by Lauren Oliver. Another teen/cross-over novel, it reminded me of The Handmaid’s Tale (thanks to that comparison sprawled on the cover). It’s the first part of a trilogy but I think it stands alone. It was pretty miserable, but totally believable. Maybe that’s what made it scary.

We borrowed I’m Not Sleepy by Kayt Manson from a friend and the boys love it. Unfortunately they love it so much it’s now tattered and the back cover is almost coming off. So I will probably have to buy a new one to give back – you can’t give back books in a worse state than they came to you, it isn’t right.

In project management reading I worked my way slowly through the Autumn Project magazine and I’m sad that editor Sally is leaving as she’s done such a fantastic job.

I also finished Practical People Engagement: Leading Change through the Power of Relationships by Patrick Mayfield. Read a guest article on Agile that he wrote for this blog.

Finally, the only book I actually bought this month was Cesar Abeid’s Project Management for You: How to Turn Your Ideas Into Reality, Deliver On Your Promises, and Get Things Done on Kindle. Look out for my review of that here in the next few months.
