Here are a couple of quick reads that provide a good value for a short time investment.
Almost Everything, by Anne Lamott
The inside flap of this book promises an exploration of ‘life’s essential truths,” which sounds pretty heavy, but don’t be dissuaded. Lamott is known for her wry wit, and in this book she acknowledges many of life’s challenges while also offering a beautiful perspective on the many reasons for love, joy, and hope.
Tell Me More, by Kelly Corrigan
I could not put this book down once I started; Corrigan is funny and insightful! The tagline – stories about the 12 hardest thing I’m learning to say – offers a glimpse of the wisdom she shares in this quick read. I highlighted many passages in the chapters titled “No” and “I Was Wrong,” so I know what I need to work on saying. I wonder what will resonate the most with you?

Are you looking to apply some strategy around your family’s time management as you enter a new school year? Lencioni uses his fable-style approach to tell the story of how a frantic family learned to appreciate their unique relationship dynamics, and how they set new priorities to drastically reduce daily chaos.
