Summer only officially began a few days ago, but being a child of the Upper Midwest, “summer” reading starts in mid-May. Here’s what I’m working on this summer:
- Brand Thinking and Other Noble Pursuits. A collection of interviews between the author and the creators and leaders behind many leading brands and campaigns.
- How to Win Friends and Influence People. The classic business book on charisma. TL;DR version? Be a good person.
- Interviewing Users. An upcoming UX Book Club Philly pick. A guide to interviewing users for research purposes.
- Manage Your Day-to-Day. Could there be a more perfect book for librarians? Constant struggle to balance day-to-day with other efforts. Hoping to write a review soon.
- The Atlas of New Librarianship. Required reading for the New Librarianship MOOC. Can’t wait!
- Creating the Customer-Driven Academic Library. Even a 2009 perspective on this seems fascinating now.
- Expect More. Because only requesting one book by R. David Lankes didn’t seem quite right.
- Setting the Table. Recommended during a customer service discussion group earlier in the year.
- Start with Why. Currently reading. Loved the TED Talk, and the book is taking me deeper.
What’s on your list this summer?
