101 in 1001: Update IV and Book Review

It's time for a 101 in 1001 update. Now first you may wonder what 101 in 1001 is. In 2009, I first heard about the concept. The goal is to complete 101 goals in 1001 days. I am now on my second second 101 goal list. For those of you who have become used to seeing my 101 list on the left side of my blog it has a new home under the 101 in 1001 tab. The side column was providing too many formatting challenges for me, so you'll have to check out the tab to see my progress.

I am now up to 38 goals being checked off. Good thing I have until November 14, 2015!

A few things that I have am proud that I am working on is reading more books. I find it pretty impossible to make time to read. However, thanks to the Boy I have found a great app to listen to books called Audible. He listens to books in the skidsteer every morning while he feeds the cows. Now whenever I travel I also listen to audio books. Not only have I completed two books this way, and I have added the additional goal of listening to five hours of audio books a month.

So what books have I read?

Lean In: You must read this book. Seriously. I think I have brought up this book to ever women friend I have. The author Sheryl Sandberg has an amazing career and wonderful personal life. She is also extremely motivated and successful, two things that our society don't always associate as positive attributes for women. I plan on buying a hard copy of this book and rereading it. You will definitely be inspired by this read.

The Duck Commander Family: How Faith, Family and Ducks Built a Dynasty: The Boy and I are big fans of Duck Dynasty. I would consider this book a lighter read, but it tells a great story of how hard work faith and sometimes doing this the unconventional way can bring you closer to your goals. It is really interesting to learn where the Robertson family started and the hurdles they have overcome.

Spoken From the Heart: This is Laura Bush's book. I have just started reading (listening) it it and I have 8-plus more hours today. So far so good, but I definitely need to get farther into it to give a full review.

p.s. Now for a Beauty Swap update. Be watching the blog because next week I will be sharing the details of the March/April Beauty Swap!
