To Do Lists

I don't know what possessed me to check out so many books from the library at one time, but something did. I must have caught aid worker fever or something of that sort these past few days. Or perhaps I was feeling extremely motivated the other day! Luckily enough, all the books I got are all ones I should hopefully enjoy. I'll be sure to share what I thought of them all...that is once I actually finish them all. I'm grateful it's summer and I have time to read these books because I know in less than 30 days from now I'll most likely have no time at all and wishing it was summer again. Here is what I must tackle these next coming weeks (and hopefully a few more thrown in there) - 

Yes. Good luck to me. My actual reading list (indeed, I do have a true 'reading list') has probably over a hundred so I must put my nose to the grindstone! I'm always open for suggestions though, so if anyone knows any good books about humanitarian issues anywhere in the world, I'd love to hear them! Along with getting through all these books I've also got to get cracking on working on this blog if it is to become what I hope it will! So here's to long night full of hot tea (despite the 90 degree weather), books, and hard work.

    Hey there!

    It's great to hear about what you're doing to better this world. My girlfriend is just like you and wants to be a humanitarian. We've just graduated from college so we're a few steps ahead of you, but it's great to hear about someone else that wants to do good in this world. I support you, my gf, and others with the same good intentions.

    Just thought I'd share some good book titles. Do you know about Paul Farmer? Try reading Mountains Beyond Mountains by Tracy Kidder. It's all about Paul and his work developing Partners in Health. Also try reading 3 Cups of Tea and Stones into Schools. One other book is Ishmael which is more about how people treat the earth but it's a great read.

    I wish you good luck on your journey.

  2. Hey!
    Thanks for all the kind compliments and for visiting the blog! I've heard of 3 Cups of Tea and Stones into Schools before and they've been on my reading list for quite some time, but as for the other three, I've never heard of them so thanks for the recommendations! I'll make sure to let you know what I think of them!
