This is the last one of 2012!! Next time I participate in this it will be 2013. Feature and Follow Friday is sponsored by Parajunkie and Alison Can Read. The purpose of this event is to learn about the two featured bloggers each week, as well as to increase your own blog following by joining in on the fun! Here is this week’s question:
Q: What book do you think everyone should read? If you could gift the entire population with one book?
That’s an easy one. It’s not even a novel, it’s a nonfiction, kind of self-improvement type book. It’s called How Full is Your Bucket: Positive Strategies for Work and Life by Tom Rath. It was a book the school district that I teach in used as kind of a focus a few years back. It’s a quick, short read. But it is so important I think. It is so easy to let one person ruin your mood. It helped me to see that just one thing I say to someone, even innocently, could be the last straw for them, based on what is going on in their life. Whenever someone is rude, just because they’re having a bad day or something, I want to hand them this book, and ask them to read it. I just think it really brings up some good points and things to consider when you’re dealing with other people.
So what about you? What book do you think everyone should read?
