What I Read In June

Orange Is The New Black by Piper Kerman. So I originally picked this up because I was having OitnB season 3 withdrawal symptoms, but it turned out to be really good. I mean yes, it was interesting to see the similarities between the book and the show but I mostly enjoyed it because reading about life in a women’s prison was surprisingly fascinating. If anyone knows of more books like this could you please leave them in the comments.

Manage Your Day-to-Day: Build Your Routine, Find Your Focus, and Sharpen Your Creative Mind by Jocelyn K. Glei. I try and treat this blog like a job, simply because its good to have something to work on everyday what with my CFS stopping me from being able to actually work. This was really useful, in fact it could be really useful for anyone working from home or freelancing. Its a bunch of interviews from various freelancers who give you tips on how to spend your time more effectively and get more done. Though I wouldn’t say its so useful that its worth the full RRP, maybe try and see if you can get a second hand copy.

    I read OITNB when it first came out, and tried to watch the show but I HATED it. I want to get back into the show to see if I’ll like it now, that some more time has past but I’m not sure I will. What do you think?

      I don’t know. I enjoyed the TV show and the latest season was very good. However its the sort of thing that you need to watch from the beginning to understand whats going on. Maybe give it another try?

    Thanks for mentioning the ‘Manage Your Day-to-Day’ book. I am a busy mom and part-time university student and also a lover of time management ideas! I have added this book to my reading list.

    Thanks Emma for the reviews. I especially like books related to working in the modern world so interested to see what you thought about “Manage your day to day”. I always try the library for books like this to save the pennies and thanks to your review I will go hunting.
