When was the last time you read a book or a substantial magazine article? I’m a little embarrassed to say this but recently my reading habits center around tweets, Facebook updates, Instagram posts, and directions on the Waze App.
Yes, if you’re like me, life has been busy and you’ve fallen out of the habit of reading. I have definitely been missing out.
This month I’m reading our beloved former FLOTUS Michelle Obama’s Becoming. If you haven’t picked up a copy yet, you can buy it here from Amazon Purchase your copy now https://amzn.to/2ViMut5
It is the autobiographical memoir of former United States First Lady Michelle Obama. Described by Michelle as a deeply personal experience, the books talks about her roots and how she found her voice, as well as her time in the White House and more.
Did you know there is a free reading guide offered by her publisher? I didn’t either until today. You can download it here http://assets.crownpublishing.com/wp-content/uploads/2018/11/becoming-michelle-obama-reading-guide.pdf
In her memoir, a work of deep reflection and mesmerizing storytelling, Michelle Obama invites readers into her world, chronicling the experiences that have shaped her—from her childhood on the South Side of Chicago to her years as an executive balancing the demands of motherhood and work, to her time spent at the world’s most famous address. With unerring honesty and lively wit, she describes her triumphs and her disappointments, both public and private, telling her full story as she has lived it—in her own words and on her own terms. Warm, wise, and revelatory, Becoming is the deeply personal reckoning of a woman of soul and substance who has steadily defied expectations—and whose story inspires us to do the same. – Excerpt from publisher
