Street sign saying 'Time for change'
This autumn came with a rather big change for me. I have been preparing it since May, when I first realised what I wanted to do. And now it’s official.
It seems this September I read mostly non-fiction, developmental books. There were two notable exceptions, one of which very enjoyable.

As deciduous trees are shedding their old leaves to prepare for a restful winter and then a renewed spring, so should we shed unhelpful or old habits, useless stuff, toxic relationships.

August had a bit more books in it, mostly because I managed to read 4 books during 5 days of holiday (by the pool) in Menorca.

Subtitle: A Practical Guide for Brilliant Women Like You. I loved this book. It’s full of great practical advice and, for me, somewhat revelatory.

It is a lesson in determination, passion and grit. Samantha Cristoforetti is a true role model for young women and girls everywhere.
