Quiet by Susan Cain. It gives great insight to introverts and understanding others.
Can you explain more about it? Should I read it?
Excellent book, especially if you’re an introvert.
I need to read this, as I too am an introvert ? Thanks for the suggestion!
Is it self-help or a different type of non-fiction?
I will say, it’s a bit of a “tedious” read (took me a long time to get through it, as it’s kind of like textbook — for me anyway! Found myself wanting to take notes!) I’m a very outgoing person, and my oldest is an introvert, and after reading this book, it helped me to understand him so much. It just helps you understand others instead of judging them. Here’s the BN link: https://www.barnesandnoble.com/w/quiet-susan-cain/1101870221?ean=9780307452207&st=PLA&sid=NOK_DRS_NOOK+EBooks_00000000&2sid=Google_&sourceId=PLGoP77128&gclid=CjwKCAjwuO3cBRAyEiwAzOxKsvBoqdUE_PWEveNPnyo2I2tlXq0G6Y4rCAAXQYUQu7Vin7CJWt61ZBoCAicQAvD_BwE#/
Seems interesting. I will give it a try.
@Mohitosh not a self help at all. Personally, I think it’s a good read for both introverts AND extroverts. Like I said, I’m an extrovert, and my oldest is an intro. I also have friends that are introverts and it helps me understand them as well. It’s just another insight to understanding ourselves and others, but mostly understanding introverts.
Wasn’t that a TED talk????
Just started reading this!
@Paula yes, I believe there is a TED talk on it as well.
I can’t choose between one.
Of Mice and Men
The Scarlet Letter
Number the Stars
A Midsummers Night’s Dream
Flowers in the Attic
How long did it take you to read that and what was your favorite part?
Oh no, I keep it for reference only, like a phonebook. However, it is quite interesting to learn words that I have never used
My favorite part is the example sentences
When my son was in fifth grade he read the dictionary, just as if he were reading a book. He used a highlighter for words he especially liked and would bookmark where he left off each day. When I asked what his favorite part was he gave the same answer as you, the example sentences. When he was finished he was fascinated by how many words there are versus how few we actually use.
Jane Eyre by Charlotte Bronte
That’s my choice too ?
I feel like anyone who chooses this one should be friends, because I rarely come across anyone who does. Lol
@Sara I agree! I read it for the first time this year and it quickly became one of my favourites ?
Great Expectations by Charles Dickens.
Love in the Time of Cholera, anything by Khaled Hosseini, and Portrait in Sepia as well

Adding to my list!

GIFT FROM THE SEA
by Anne Morrow Lindberg
The Grapes of Wrath. Just so we can appreciate what we have.
Miyamoto Musashi’s Book of Five Rings
1984 should be required reading for everyone.
Something they really enjoy. Something they lose themselves in. Something that will stay with them long after the end. To me, this is what reading is about.
A favorite of mine, friend. 🙂
my favorite too my friend
@Rachid 1984 is good movie and some things mentioned in book u could say are real or happening

I like this book too but my favorite one by Mitch Albon it’s “Tuesday with Morrie”
@Pedro thanks for the info, I will add this to my list.
Terri Copeland Shank You won’t regret to read this book. It’s gonna be your favorite one too !!!
…I promise !
None. But let’s go with something humourous.
I am fairly close to finishing The Autobiography of Malcolm X, and it’s unlike anything I’ve ever read, on virtually every level. It’s truly eye-opening and powerful (brutally honest,) in a completely transformative way. The highest recommendation!!
I agree. It was on my short list but didn’t make the final cut, partly because I just assumed we were supposed to name fiction and I already had one non-fiction.
I was reluctant to read “The Glass Castle”, but when I did I loved it. Extremely well written on a difficult subject.
War and Peace or Don Quixote.
How Full is Your Bucket? By Tom Rath
