Many of the organizations I know have donors who mysteriously disappear for months on end in the summer. (Who are these people? What are they doing? And how do I become one of them?) Most of my pals, on the other hand, take a few weeks off and generally keep working through the summer but count on a sort of slow-down so many of us need in these hectic times.
For me, summer’s a great time to try and squeeze in some extra time to read. I’m usually reading a few books at once, trying to mix personal and professional interests. Here’s what’s on my summer reading list:
“Social Media Success” by Janet Fout (a self-described ‘social media enabler’) also looks great and, from the bit I’ve already read, seems like a must-read for nonprofit communicators.
Just for fun, I’m also listening to the audiobook of “The Girl Who Played with Fire”- the second in Stieg Larson’s mystery series. The first is “The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo” which is a great beach read/listen: a compelling mystery that’s actually well-written without too much extraneous garbage and compelling characters.
What’s on your reading list?
