recent reading, viewing and books on the go
commencement speech at Wellesley High School. Footage of the event went viral as people debated the message McCullough gave his students. It's definitely thought-provoking stuff about the way we treat our kids today. One of my best reads in 2014 so far is Mistakes I made at work: 25 influential women reflect on what they got out of getting it wrong. Edited by Jessica Bacal, an eclectic group of women tell their stories - essential for anyone in, or anyone who's been in, the workplace - also a great resource for people beginning their careers. This must read shows the power of admitting you're wrong and what to do next.
As always, all books featured come from our local library's network throughout Victoria - I order them online and just have to pick them up from the reserves shelf when they come in - great stuff!
What have you been reading lately? Is there room on my bedside table for more?
