I love to read and it’s one of my favorite ways for self care. Books are expensive now days and I can’t afford them brand new. When I am in need of a new book, I turn to Thriftbooks. Thriftbooks is a online used bookstore with discounted books. The books I buy revolve around topics I am interested in and are typically self help or educational books. Three of the books I picked up in a recent thriftbooks haul:
- The Tipping Point by Malcolm Gladwell
- Peaceful Parent, Happy Kids by Laura Markham
- Look Me In The Eye: My Life With Asperger’s by John Elder Robison
The Tipping Point is a book about human behavior and how people are influenced. I picked up this book because I have seen a huge increase in certain fields or topics and how they have become popular.
Peaceful Parent, Happy Kids is a parenting book about how to create a more peaceful home while kids listen. I try to always pick up a new parenting book and expand my knowledge.
Look Me In The Eye, I picked up because I have a son who has autism. I like to get other perspectives on other families who also have special needs children since every situation is different. It makes me feel less alone in the sometimes crazy household we run.
