Picks for Our Caregiving Book Club


Picks for Our Caregiving Book Club

I got behind with picking our selections for our Caregiving Book Club. Our March action (we're reading) for our Caregiving Happiness Project is getting me ahead.

Our book club picks for the next few months are:

April: The Gifts of Imperfection: Let Go of Who You Think You're Supposed to Be and Embrace Who You Are by Brene Brown

May: Wild: From Lost to Found on the Pacific Crest Trail by Cheryl Strayed

June: Back to the Summit by Omer Rains (the author will join us for a live discussion)

July: Strengths Finder 2.0 by Tom Rath

You should be able to find the April and May selections (and possibly the June pick) at your library. You'll want to purchase Strengths Finder ($14.97 at Amazon.com) because you'll want to take an online assessment. In order to take the assessment, you need to purchase the book to get a code.

In the past, I picked a book written by an author who I know will be able to join us for a live discussion. I've decided to mix it up a bit and choose books I know will lead to an interesting discussion for us. I'll keep you posted on when we'll discuss each month's pick on Your Caregiving Journey talk show.

We also have a group for our Caregiving Book Club you can join to discuss not only our month's selection but any book you're reading or recommending. Any member of the site (and it's free to join Caregiving.com) can join the group here.

Reminder: Your Caregiving Journey next airs on Tuesday, March 6, at 11:30 a.m. ET and at 9 p.m. ET. Note that we have a new time for our live call-in show on Tuesday evening. Bette has a school event for her daughter, so we'll broadcast at 9 p.m. ET rather than our normal time of 7:30 p.m. ET. We'll take your live calls to this question: What went well today? You can listen to our shows here.
