This week, I honestly didn’t do a lot of internetting. I finished my book from last week so I’ll be speaking on that. I also finished another book that’s kind of similar so those thought are below as well. Lastly, I’ll also share one of my favorite reading resources. Hope you guys like to learn because I’m about to give you a hidden gem.

You Are a BadAss

If you read last week’s Millennial Moments, you’d know that I started You Are a Badass by Jen Sincero. While the book was longer than I anticipated, it was actually a good read.

I like self help style books and books that are mostly autobiographical because I’m obsessed with people’s stories. This book provided a ton of self help and insight into thought processes and patterns.

This book isn’t going to be for everyone. It tells you to do some silly things and makes you get pretty real and uncomfortable with yourself. But if you stick it out till the end, you’re sure to get a few nuggets of wisdom and tactical advice.

The Subtle Art of Not Giving a F*ck

Now this book is also in the self help category but takes things to a different level. To be honest, I started this book half way through You Are a Badass, and I finished this one before the other. It was that good.

It basically says that everything you want to accomplish can be summed up in what you give a f*ck about. Mark Manson, the author, basically calls everyone on their shit and put it in a book.

There are stories of honor, heroism, being afraid, etc. But Mark basically says that those who win, win because they only care about the things that are important. They don’t waste their f*cks on meaningless shit.

I’m doing the book a disservice in this little blurb but I highly recommend you check it out if you haven’t already. If you need a kick in the ass for the start of the year, look no further.

Libby

I love reading. It’s actually one of my favorite things to do. However, I also love to do several other things and I only have 24 hours in a day. Living in the 21st century provides me with several advantages to soothe my reading itch. One of those is Libby.

Libby is my library app. I check out books (actually audio-books) for free, read them, and they are automatically returned. Libby has allowed me the joys of listening to books I probably would have never gotten around to actually reading.

It’s pretty simple. If you have a library card, simply download the app, put in your card details and it will link you to your local library. From there you can check out e-books, audio books, or whatever else your library has to offer.

Libby has probably been my favorite app of the end of the year. Like I said it’s how I was able to read all the books I read at the end of the year. I have several on my wish/waiting list, and I’m looking forward to devouring them.


That’s all I have for this week. Let me know if you enjoy this or learned something. I’d love to hear your feedback.
