Summer Reading Programs

Summer is a great time to read! Take a book to the beach or sit on the deck and read. Reading is exciting and relaxing all at the same time. Many libraries across the U.S. offer summer reading programs for the kids and teenagers and some offer adult reading programs. Check out your local library for summer reading programs or book clubs, it's a great way to get excited about reading.

You should also heck out all of the great summer reading lists at Barnes and Noble, Amazon or at your local library. And, remember audio books make great entertainment for long car rides on the way to vacation destinations or on the airplane!

There are plenty of new business books available for reading over the summer along with all those biographies that you wanted to read last winter and of course you have to read a few mysteries or love stories just for the entertainment factor.

Here are some links to a few summer reading book lists including lists of books for the kids in your life:

Women on The Most Wanted List at Many Companies

A great new book called Womenomics (Harper Collins, 2009) by co-authors Claire Shipman and Katty Kay details new research that proves that women are “the hot commodity” in the workplace.

Women executives have proven to be better leaders, create higher profits, maintain a higher level of organization, and most important, they can use both sides of their brains.

A few new terms introduced include "pink profits", "asset-to-estrogen", "a new all" and the title itself, "womenomics."

Women are in big demand and the authors propose that it is a good time for women to ask themselves what they want at work and then ask their bosses for it. Flex time, or less time at the office, guilt free time off, or working from home some of the time are benefits that companies are starting to realize make good motivators and are received by women as benefits.

It is a great book with some really great statistics about women in the workplace.

This has been a very busy summer for writing assignments. Unfortunately I’ve made very few blog entries over the past several months. I vow to get better and start posting more regularly. For now, here are a few links that will take you to a few recent book reviews on Blogcritics.
