Living With Less – Simply Books

August 19, 2012 in Simple Living Book Club by Lorilee Lippincott

I got the privilege of reviewing Joshua Becker’s new book Living With Less this month.  It was released last Wednesday Aug 15.

It was not my intent to turn this blog into a bunch of reviews and now I am doing 2 in one month.  Trust me, this is not going to be the new norm :)  Just a coincidence that 2 of my favorite bloggers happen to be publishing in the same month.

For full disclosure I received a free digital copy of this book.  Joshua had a post up on his site asking for bloggers to review and I applied to be a reviewer in exchange for a book (a pretty cool perk of blogging).  I am not being paid in any other way.  I agreed to post about the book, but this is my honest review of the book.

I enjoyed this book.  It is a shorter book but it covers the topic well.  It has everything I love – minimalism, Christianity, and personal story all wrapped up into one.

Wrecked – Passing the Pages

August 12, 2012 in Simple Living Book Club by Lorilee Lippincott

We have passed on 3 books so far, here is the 4th.

This month I am passing on Wrecked: When a Broken World Slams into your Comfortable Life by Jeff Goins. I reviewed it a few weeks ago.  To put in a short summary, I loved this book :)  To me it defined ‘really living’.

I got both a kindle version and a paper version for being part of the launch team.  Now I am done and I want to pass it on (cause I live in a tiny apartment and have a very small bookshelf :))

Wrecked – The Book

I have been so excited to share this post with you all month.  I have been reading “Wrecked” by Jeff Goins and have loved it.

To start with the disclaimer.  I am on the launch team for this book.  What that means is that I got a free copy of the book and got to brainstorm with about 100 other super cool people about how to help Jeff get the book launched.  I am not paid to be part of the launch team, paid for my review of the book, or paid if you buy the book.  There are no affiliate links in this post.

I have read Jeff’s blog for the last few months, and honestly, it has been the only one I have kept up with.  I used to follow more blogs and hope to in the future because so many are amazing, but lately it has been just Jeff’s.  I like his ideas, the way he expresses himself and the way he thinks.

So when he got his first book published (that he has talked about off and on) I knew I would read it.  Then I found the book site this summer and I was hooked.

Simply Books – June

June 24, 2012 in Simple Living Book Club by Lorilee Lippincott

I read two books this past month:

The $100 Startup: Reinvent the Way You Make a Living, Do What You Love, and Create a New Future – I was very excited to read this book and it exceeded my expectations. This is a huge book motivating, storytelling, and explaining how to create value and freedom in the form of a business. I loved this book because it doesn’t talk about creating a million dollar idea (which isn’t bad… just less likely) or building a huge businesses. It is about creating income to meet your personal needs, dreams, and goals.  These were mostly small businesses, started with very little capital (hence the name) and provided good money as well as personal freedom for the owners.
