Compiled a book list of what I have been reading lately, still working on my latest bed time readings, it will come in the next post ( I think i could finally hit my reading goal this year !) :

Slow is beautiful | 慢,理想的生活提案  作者:辻信一

書裡講了各種慢節奏生活的方案,有時候在快節奏的生活中停下來,想一想事情,享受當下也是極好的。快節奏的生活確實會節省很多“時間”,但是仔細想想節省的“時間”都去幹嘛了呢?匆匆忙忙的做一些自以為是很有效率的事情?重複著機械式的布驟?

Received this book as a gift from Michelle, “slow” is never a theme of my lifestyle. Most of the time is all about being efficient. It’s an very interesting reading, it got you start thinking about how you managed your time, where do you spend most of your time and most importantly how do you enjoy your time.

84, Charing Cross Road   By Helene Hanff, Brian Clark | 查令十字路84號

在从泰国回家的国泰航班上看了北京遇上西雅图2,里面的故事情节巧取了查令十字路84號並加以改編。也是因為這樣才萌生了看這本很有名,一直在書單排行榜上的書。說實話,看完書之後覺得電影實在是太爛了。海倫跟書店經理的書信往來樸實而又溫馨,側面反映了當時英國的時局,又不失有趣。

Been seeing this book on numerous reading list, never made a decision to read it until I watched a film. Got the Chinese version because the English one was sold out in the book store. The book consists of a collection of letters between Helene and the book store manager, delightful stories.

乖,摸摸頭  作者:大冰

從朋友家書架上隨便拿的一本書,裡面講述了好多真實的故事,人生百態,值得一讀。總體來說同作者的另一本書 阿彌陀佛 麼麼噠 讓人看了更加有感觸。

遇見未知的自己 作者:张德芬

也是前段時間病了窩在家裡從朋友書架上隨便抓的書。 絕對是一本透過講故事來講道理的心靈雞湯!說的都在理,喜歡看心靈雞湯或者故事的可以看一看。

我做媽劇停   作者:Derek Ng & Michael Leung

前同事寫的一本關於Marketing職場的書,書裡各種廣東字眼,各種形容都十分貼切。我看的時候一直都在默默點頭!書裡很多笑點,也有一些多年Marketing老手給新人的小貼士和建議。如果你也做Marketing,看的時候必定會會心一笑!

Inner Peace by Paramahansa Yogananda

之前Conference嘉賓送的一本書,他說看我一天到晚跑來跑去,忙前忙後,覺得我會很需要它。 打算在泰國之行看完,未遂;後來終於在西雅圖之旅的某晚看完了。講了好多關於尋找Inner Peace的方法,什麼是正確的inner peace, 非常適合心煩意亂的時候找個地方靜靜的讀幾頁。 印象最深刻的是:吃豬肉跟牛肉。會讓人容易煩躁跟發脾氣。好久都不吃豬肉了,但是戒牛肉真的好難,做不到啊!

Having lots of money while not having inner peace is like dying of thirst while bathing in the ocean.” Quote from Yogananda. This is so true ! The books talks about be honest with yourself and actively finding an inner peace. Inner peace doesn’t mean you sit in a corner quietly and it will comes to you. Before reading this book, always had this illusion of  peace = passive resting without movement and talking , or simply spacing out. A good read for everyone.
