Whats on your nightstand September 2011

This month I am joining with other bloggers to bring you Whats on Your Nightstand.

Since my last book review I read: License to Pawn by Rick Harrison and I Can Make You Sleep by Paul McKenna.

If you like Pawn Stars you will like License to Pawn.  Its delves into the history of all the major stars, has the history of the shop and how they got started doing a reality show.  Its full of funny stories both personal and business.  I enjoyed this book and it was a quick easy read.

Paul McKenna is a hypnotist, the book comes with a cd but I have not had the chance to listen to it.  But as a writer his work is clear and concise.  The directions are simple and easy to understand.  The book worked wonders for me and I highly recommend it.  Quite honestly you aren't gonna be any worse off if you read it, but you can be if you don't.

I also read Decision Points by George W. Bush.  I enjoyed this book, but it was difficult to read. So many bad things happened in the 8 years he was president; from 9/11 to Katrina to the collapse of the economy. It was like reliving all those things.  It was nice to get an inside view as to why he made the decisions he did and how he would have handled things differently.  Overall it was a good book. 

For the month of October I hope to read: The Broken American Male by Rabbi Shmuley Botech, The 101 Most Influential People Who Never Lived by Dan Karlan, and if I have time Going Rogue by Sarah Palin. Although, I might push Palin's off if I find something more interesting in the meantime (no offense).

  1. The 101 Most Influential People sounds like an interesting read. I hope you have a great reading month! :)

  2. So far 101 is annoying. Different writing styles and one of them was actually written from a dog's point of view. Interesting and education none the less.
