Finally get around to read Good to Great: Why Some Companies Make the Leap And Others Don’t by Jim Collins.  Actually I am reading it on my iPhone 6, and I have to say I don’t mind since my reading time is squeezed to and from work during commuting.  When you barely have any wiggle room for your hand on a super-packed train in the morning, reading off a small screen is the only option you have, unless an iPhone 6-size paperback version of the book exists out there.

I’ve heard of servant leadership which I thought it’s the ‘highest level of leadership’ or the ‘newest leadership in 21st century’ but have never heard of Level 5 Leadership. I am on chapter 3 but the book is already adding to my existing ‘leadership literature’ database.  Can’t wait to finish it!

Currently reading: The Luther College Story, 1913-2013: A Century Of Faithfulness In Education

Luther College is a high school located in Saskatchewan, Canada. Last month I went to a reunion and got the book and token as gifts! I hope I can finish the book in a few months.

A trio of books

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

I can’t remember the last time I took out books at one of HK’s public libraries, I really can’t. Today I took out 3 books, 1 on Twitter and 2 on survey – the research kind.

Not sure what I want to get out of the 2 on survey but I guess  I will skim them through and see what jumps out at me. The Twitter one is definitely an easier read no doubt about it. It’s social media! and I have been trying to brush up my Twitter techniques. I have been using more of the blue birdie but found it hard to master. I am looking forward to reading this book.

A movie for male authors, writers and bloggers?

Ruby Sparks (2012) starring Paul Dano and Zoe Kazan.

The girl of your dream materializes from your very own words?! I have to see this movie.

Rings of……

 

I’d need a spouse wouldn’t I for the third option. For the first two rings, I realllllly don’t want to be tempted by either of them, heck of a temptation to resist. So I am running to the pub for a proper drink, and that’s why I didn’t vote.

Horns of……

I just realized,

Horn of Joramun, brings back giants from the ground (Game of Thrones)

Horn of Valere, brings back dead heroes (Wheel of Time)

Horn of Cahbhadh, brings back ancestors from the spirit world (Merlin)

Which one would you pick?
