in Reading Notes

Books Read in May ’16

May was the finishing up of Season 2 of The Real, followed by three weeks in Portugal (along with two nights in Istanbul, Turkey) for our honeymoon. The long flights, train rides, and beach time left a decent amount of time for reading, including books nabbed at a charming bookstore in Lagos and the airport in Lisbon.

Best May BookTurning Pro by Steven Pressfield – I read Pressfield’s War of Art a few years ago, so I am late to the game with Turning Pro. It espouses a mindset I’ve worked toward for a long time, and despite setbacks, I still endeavor toward a seriousness in my projects, my writing, and my work.
