COVID-19 lockdown is slowly lifting up in some parts of the world allowing for more time to spend outside. And when you’re getting your daily vitamin D somewhere in less crowded places (nobody has cancelled social distancing yet), bring with you a few books to read in June.
Three Books to Read in June
Can you believe spring is over? It was one of the most unusual seasons for all of us. It taught us a lot and it slowed us down tremendously. The past few months gave us time to finally pick up those books to read that we were putting off for later. Now summer looks more promising. But, considering the current situation, you still have plenty of time to go through some of your favorite books to read. Without further ado, let’s open a new season with these three books to read in June.
THREE BOOKS YOU SHOULD READ IN JUNE:
Abundance by Peter H. Diamandis and Steven Kotler
Abundance is not one of the easiest books to read this month. It contains lots of scientific data, statistics, and graphs. Moreover, it might not be your first pick on a lazy afternoon. It took me two attempts to read this book. And thus, I suggest that you pair it with some other easy reads. Travel books sound more than appealing.
So, why you should read Abundance in June? Ironically, the book starts with bringing up some data from, you guess it… pandemic. The 1918 flue pandemic infected almost a third of the world’s population. And what about other problems such as lack of drinking water and malnourishment in the Third World countries? We still have all these issues, and the authors don’t try to downplay them. On the contrary, they start their book with listing all these problems in the past and compare them with the situation nowadays.
Calamities, diseases, and developing countries’ problems didn’t go away, but they clearly became less acute. And thus, both authors express hope in the future and new technologies that help make it brighter. So, treat our first book to read in June as an informative material that brings hope in this uncertain time.
Lessons by Gisele Bündchen
If you need to read a book or two books to see a person in a different light, do yourself a favor and grab Lessons. I admit, I never was a big fan of Gisele Bündchen. Obviously, she is one of the top models in the world, and you heard about her at least once. But what is often overlooked, the models are also people. And like all of us, they have their ups and downs, struggles and joys.
In her book Lessons, Gisele opens up about how to success as not exactly the right type of model in a very saturated industry. It doesn’t take mystic powers or something extraordinary. But you have to do your best, be discipled, determined, and have your goals set. Isn’t it what any career and profession ask for?
Moreover, one of the most inspiring books to read in June, Lessons includes some of the lessons from Gisele’s personal life. The famous supermodel doesn’t hide her love for yoga. But did you know that this Asian practice helped her battle severe case of panic attack in her early twenties? I had no clue until I read about it in the book.
Crushing It by Gary Vaynerchuk
Those who are familiar with Gary Vaynerchuk’s entrepreneurial style instantly figure out what Crushing In is all about. According to the author and our last book to read in June, personal branding through social media is a key to any business. Do you spend way too much time on Instagram or Facebook? Apparently, it’s not that bad, but use it wisely. Instead of scrolling through other people’s feeds, create your own stuff. Today more than ever, you need to invest time in your personal brand. However, the secret to your success lies in your determination and understanding of the social media platforms. These two are essential to any brand. Gary is not alone when he says it. Many of other entrepreneurs whose stories the author shares in Crushing In agree with him.
