I am a word person and books lover. From my Clifton Strengths 34 themes personal report:

“1. Learner

By nature, you absorb all sorts of information from books, publications, or other written materials. You display a voracious — that is, never fully satisfied — appetite for knowledge.

You devour the written word to savor useful facts. For you, a great day is one during which you have added new insights to your mind’s storehouse of ideas.

Because of your strengths, you treasure books and other publications because they are rich sources of information. You regard the written word as a gateway to a vast world of new ideas. Your quest to interpret events, grasp facts or understand concepts appears limitless.

Frequently you read to broaden your perspective on very familiar as well as altogether unfamiliar topics.”

Spot on. Resonating louder.

Fiction. Non-fiction. Visual books. Business books. French ones. International ones. Bring them on!

Here is below why I am reading and will read over this Summer and beyond.
