Love Yourself to Grow

Sharing my love of Books!

Today’s plans were cancelled due to unforeseen circumstances so I decided to take a break and go to one of my favorite places to unwind…. Barnes & Nobles!!


I LOVE going to B&N! I can literally spend hours in this store!! I love books! 

Call me old fashioned but I still love holding books while I read them and being able to write in my books for notes or just carry them where ever I go. And I love actually going to the store and choosing a book in person. I know I can look online at reviews and pick that way but it’s just not the same…. something about actually going to the store calms me.

Today I chose to get Rising Strong by Brené Brown… Love her insight!!!

With that said I decided to share my love of books with all of you!

Here’s a list of personal development books that I have read and enjoy!!

There are so many others available and my list probably is incomplete compared to what I’ve read but it’s a start.
