I'm someone who loves to read business, leadership, marketing, and overall Professional books 24/7 however I've been challenging myself to read other books recently to try to balance things out and not burn myself out on professional reads.

The two books that I've been really enjoying are Billy Martin: Baseball's Flawed Genius & The Bomber Mafia.

So I'm curious, what books have you been reading that are more Fun reads vs. Professional? How do you keep yourself balanced?

I have it on my book shelf but haven't read it yet! Going on vacation in a few days and it may be joining me... what have you thought so far  Arnie Malham ??

I loved Everybody Fights by the Holderness' and Greenlights by Matthew McConaughey. I also have been loving Ruth Ware books. :-) I have a strange range of genres I like to mix and match depending on my mood. ;-)

I've heard that if you read page 66 of Everybody Fights out loud while wearing your Christmas jammies, it will summon Penn.

I'm currently making my way through Murakami's books. 1Q84 trilogy at the moment.

I've been reacquainting myself with some of the dystopian and sci-fi classics, like 1984, Slaughterhouse-Five, and Brave New World.

I highly recommend The Night Circus. Fascinating story that's beautifully written. And the end is ... well, you'll just have to read it!

I like to constantly alternate between novels, non-fiction, memoirs, and self-help/business/leadership, so I don't get tired of one genre too much in a row. Right now I'm reading The Radium Girls, and it's fascinating. Next up, I will finally be getting on the Essentialism bandwagon.

I've heard good things about The Radium Girls. Have to add it to my list.

I'm guilty of reading too many books at once but right now most of my focus is on: 
"Don't You Know Who I Am?": How to Stay Sane in an Era of Narcissism, Entitlement, and Incivility by Ramani S. Durvasula.

The book is super intriguing but she also has a super interesting YouTube channel as well where she explores narcissism and other issues.

We've been doing a book club within our marketing team at my company but tbh it's been feeling more like a chore since books usually aren't one size fits all for differing roles. We just finished The Power of Moments and I have mixed feelings about it!

I decided to re-read the Harry Potter series and just finished the first book yesterday! I'm going to try the second book on audio to switch things up next. As far as keeping myself balanced, I almost always try to have a fun read and professional read going at the same time. So many books, so little time!

I'm reading Brooklyn by Colm Toibin. It's absolutely lovely.

I like big books and I cannot lie. I'm reading the fourth book in Brandon Sanderson's Stormlight Archive, Rhythm of War.
