Reading Is Self-Care: 2020 Edition


“You can’t pour from an empty cup.”

On Monday I shared that reading is the ultimate in self-care for me and that I have not read a full book for pleasure while quarantined. Later, I realized that I haven’t read a book for pleasure in 2020. I started the year with plans to read ‘Becoming’ by Michelle Obama. I didn’t complete the first chapter before I shifted my time to preparation for teaching an undergraduate sociology course. Then I went full speed ahead without looking back or taking time to pause. And then you know the rest…

I decided that I will not buy a book to read, I will choose an unread book from my bookshelf. Here are my book choices:

  1. Becoming – Michelle Obama
  • The Science of Getting Rich – Wallace D. Wattles
  • Mayor For Life: The Incredible Story of Marion Barry, Jr. – Marion Barry Jr. and Omar Tyree
  • The Power To Prosper: 21 Days to Financial Freedom – Michelle Singletary
  • 13 Things Mentally Strong Women Don’t Do: Own Your Power, Channel Your Confidence, and Find Your Authentic Voice for a Life of Meaning and Joy – Amy Morin
  • Think and Grow Rich A Black Choice – Dennis Kimbro
  • Fervent – Priscilla Shirer
  • Picture Your Prosperity: Smart Money Moves to Turn Your Vision into Reality – Ellen Rogin and Lisa Kueng
  • Reinventing You: Define Your Brand, Imagine Your Future – Dorie Clark

Which book should I choose?
