Bout of Books 24: Day 5

You guys I’m tired. It’s supposed to be the end of the week, but I don’t have that Thank God It’s Friday feeling because my next day off is actually next Thursday. I know it’s my own fault, shift swaps and what not, but its leaving me with no energy left to read. That’s it, enough moaning, onwards and upwards now as I have had my mini rant. We have 3 days left of this readathon, let’s see how much we can all read.

Bout of Books 24: Day 3

Today is a much needed and hugely appreciated day off from work, and even though there is lots to do around the house, I think I am going to try and have a bit of a relaxing day, because once today has gone, I don’t have another day off until next Thursday. I am really enjoying the actual reading in Bout of Books 24. I have been so busy with work that I must confess that I haven’t done as much chatting and socialising with you all yet, but I am loving what I am reading and I really enjoyed the sprinting last night. I am thinking about doing some more this afternoon, would you be up for that?

Description:

Changing how you think is possible. I wasn’t always so sure that was true until I experienced it myself, but I know now we don’t have to just accept unhappiness. Not always anyway. This book is my collection of tips and suggestions that have helped me achieve happier thinking. It’s sort of a gym for my mind. I’d love to tell you it was easier than the real gym but well… it’s not really. It takes time, effort, and practice but it’s absolutely well worth the rewards.

*I was sent a copy of this book by the author in exchange for a fair and honest review.*
