Some of the words used to describe Lenny’s Book of Everything include exquisite, compelling, rare, classic, perfect, piercing, humorous and uplifting… just to name a few. Written for children aged 10+, this is being enjoyed by both children and adults alike.
The winner of the Children’s category of the 2019 Indie Book Awards, Lenny’s Book of Everything is about finding good in the bad and will break your heart while raising your spirits in the way that only a classic novel can.
Lenny, small and sharp, has a younger brother Davey who won't stop growing - and at seven is as tall as a man. Raised by their mother, they have food and a roof over their heads, but not much else.
The bright spot every week is the arrival of the latest issue of the Burrell's Build-It-at-Home Encyclopedia. Through the encyclopedia, Lenny and Davey experience the wonders of the world - beetles, birds, quasars, quartz - and dream about a life of freedom and adventure. But as Davey's health deteriorates, Lenny realises that some wonders can't be named.
Yes, it’s still winter in Norway!😒 But at least I can go on a couple more ski trips! I’ve discovered a love of alpine skiiing all of a sudden.😱 I’ve always found skiing really really BORING but that’s because I’ve only been cross country skiing🤦🏻♀️
Have you been skiing before? Did you enjoy it?
: “Shopaholic and Sister” is a fun & easy read. . After returning from her world-wide honeymoon trip, Becky Brandon (nee Bloomwood) comes home to London. She expects her family and friends to admire her for her adventures and the trinkets she brought home from exotic lands.
But, she discovers that everyone is busy living their own lives. Her best friend Suze has made a new friend, Lulu, who makes Becky feel out of the loop. Even her parents are acting funny around her. Her husband Luke slips back into his work-life as if nothing had changed, so Becky is feeling a bit lonely.
Then she discovers she has a long lost sister.
All her life Becky was a pampered only child, and now she is happy to learn that she has a half-sister, Jessica. Becky thinks Jessica will be able to fill that gap in her heart, but when she actually meets her, Becky is surprised to discover that Jessica hates shopping.
This week the ACIW Mumbai Book Club met to discuss 'Nomad: From Islam to America' by Ayaan Hirsi Ali - a perfect book for the Women's History Month of March. While there are always fascinating discussions, this was especially the case with such a controversial book as 'Nomad'. As always, we have two dedicated members running the show. Thank you Farhana for hosting us in your home and Sangeeta for a marvellous job in guiding the conversation.
“Many of us learn to construct a clear and precise vision of what we want, but we’re never taught how to enjoy what we actually have. There will always be more victories to strive for, more strangers to charm, more images to collect and pin to our vision boards. It’s hard to want what we have; it’s far easier to want everything in the world.” ― Heather Havrilesky, What If This Were Enough?

The other day I was sitting at the bar of a Brooklyn coffee shop, nervously sipping my latte while I prepared for the launch of #awomanisnoman (which was scheduled to start moments later at @greenlightbklyn), when I looked across the room to find @ffmirza, author of #APlaceForUs , typing into her laptop. I recognized her immediately, and the next thing I knew I had stood up, walked over to her table, tapped on her shoulder, and said, “I’m sorry to bother you, but I just wanted to say that I loved your novel and you’re even more beautiful in person.” She replied, “Thank you so much. Can I give you a hug?” Aww!💕 After a small conversation, I told her I was an author too and that my event was in a few minutes at the bookstore next door. She said she was sorry she couldn’t make it, but she would love to read the book. We said goodbye and I headed next door to @greenlightbklyn to prepare for the event. A few moments later, @ffmirza walked into the bookstore, bought #awomanisnoman , and asked me to sign it. Long story short: you know when you like an author based on her work but then you meet her and instantly fall in love with her character even more? That’s what happened with me. Forever a fan of @ffmirza. ✨

Learning is key to become successful. It's also something that people don't put much thought into.
You may read books or study, but do you ever think about the learning process? Do you ever consider how much time you spend learning it how much you remember after you're done?
I know I didn't. I was always focused on cramming and getting as much in knowledge in as I passive. As time went on I realized that I was forgetting a significant portion of what I learned. That's not a good use of time and no one wants to waste their time.
That's when I set out to find a new way to learn. I came across this book and it changed everything. Prior to reading this I had the same routine for learning. After reading this I realized that changing my routine regular causes me think harder and thinking harder creates better memories.
I've also come to realize that cramming it's useless. A better way to do it is testing yourself on small sections a little but at a time. The more times you think about something the better you remember it.
It's crazy to think that these were just 2 of many lessons I learned while reading this book. What's even crazier is I went from a 2.8gpa in high school to a 3.9 in college. I spend significantly less time learning and retain so much more.
I highly recommend this book to everyone, especially autodidacts and college students. You won't believe how much better things are when you are learning effectively.

When you go on holiday do you venture into bookshops? Do you look at local maps and books in foreign languages? 🙇🏻♀️💭

Our little local book club of five lovely ladies, chose this book to read (thank you @opheliastephanie for my copy). We'll all be reviewing it together at a later date.
I'm half way through and I just don't want to put it down! 😭
Have you read this book, or do you plan to? It's obviously had a lot of hype, but so far it is living up to it.
