Who’s Les Brown?

27 Jul

AUGUST:BOOK OF THE MONTH- Live your dreams by Les Brown

HAVE YOU BOUGHT YOUR BOOK? hmmmm I bought mine… I hope you bought yours too :D. If you don’t know about the author, here’s a little bit about him.

( WATCH THE VIDEO BELLOW, IT’S ONLY 8 MINUTES, I PROMISE YOU WON’T BE DISAPPOINTED, THIS COULD PERHAPS CHANGE YOUR LIFE…)

Les Brown is one my favourite motivational speakers! He inspires me in so many ways- in the fifth grade he was mistakenly identified as “educable mentally retarded” , and was put back from the fifth grade to fourth grade and stayed in that category until he left high school, he was adopted when he was 6 weeks of age and has no college education. However despite of what everyone said he persevered through all the hardships and proved everybody wrong! He is also one of 6 siblings and regardless of his circumstances he NEVER STOPPED DREAMING.  He is now among the best motivational speakers (Zig Ziglar, Anthony Robbins and Bob Proctor).

I really hope you enjoy this book and remember stop and drop your book review, comments or questions in my blog.

P.S for those of you that don’t know about Les Brown, here’s a video that shows what Les Brown is all about.

I PROMISE YOU’LL NOT BE DISAPPOINTED

Live Your Dreams by Les Brown

I’ve never read this book and I must say I am extremely excited to see what Les Brown has to offer.

P.S Remember this is the book for August as well because we are in the middle of July! So NO EXCUSES- You have enough time to buy the book, read it once, read it twice and make notes :D

Reading List!

15 Jul

Hello Book Club Family! Thank you all for joining. As you can see below is the list of the books we’ll be reading! If I missed any books or you have suggestions please message me and I will add to the list! On SATURDAY 17TH OF JULY I will be doing a random selection of the first book: D

Since we are in the middle of July,the book chosen will be the book for AUGUST! This will give you enough time to buy the book, read it, learn it and make notes lol and if you think of any discussion topics while reading the book write it down and save it from discussion day

P.S don’t just read the book once and put back in the shelf! Read it twice if can! Repetition is the mother learning! And maybe highlight things that you find interesting or didn’t quite understand.

Have a wonderful day
