For those who do not know me, I have a peculiar relation with technology. This time, I decided to review reading Apps. For so many years, I have struggled reading using an Ipad, a Kindle, or any other technology. To be honest, I still do not. However I recently discovered a few interesting Apps that… Continue reading My top six reading Apps
I have been away for a few weeks. They were tough two weeks. I discovered that when I am not well I find no joy in writing. I thank God I have a friend like Ken. He contributed once again to my blog. He reviewed a book we both read and enjoyed. It is fitting… Continue reading A woman in Arabia: the writings of the queen of the desert By Gertrude Bell
To be completely honest, I have had a tough week at work. It was long, demanding, included travelling, and more. I did not have a chance to write a personal blog post. But, as usual, my dear and now standing contributor Ken saved me. It is not like something bad would happen if I do not blog once a week. However this is a level of consistency I am committed to. Also when you are so overwhelmed with the readers' reactions, comments, shares, and likes - you feel that you have no choice but honor every reader's expectations. Ken reviewed a book I have not read. His review will surely make me read it. I hope it does that to you too. Enjoy.

I started to follow Joyce Meyer back in 2005. Since then I have read two of her books (Battlefield of the Mind and Making Good Habits). I also got addicted to her audio-book series around offense. I personally like Joyce Meyer for a very simple reason: she realized that the Bible is the best leadership book. She also activated this realization in her ministries, books, and other platforms. My friend Ken likes her as much as I do. He reviewed her flagship book, Battlefield of the Mind. I thank him for this; hoping Ken and I are able to inspire you in leading a life of love, respective, mindfulness, integrity, forgiveness, kindness, and joy.
My friend Ken McKellar was generous enough to contribute for the second time to my blog. I happen to have read this book. I would definitely not have been able to review this book as beautifully as Ken did hereunder. Enjoy reading!
Dear book addicts, I am so happy that the request from guest contributors is increasing. Here is a post by Farah Al Dabbagh. Farah is a very talented young Saudi woman who I got the chance to work with. She literally embodies a future thought leader. I am honored to have her write on my blog as we share a common passion: books. I wanted to make sure that she is given the space to express herself, freely. I am thrilled to have a woman guess contributor from the Kingdom.
I read this book about a year ago and it soon became among my favorite books. In French we call it “livre de chevet”, a book you keep by your bed, one you read more than once, one you open at random pages at random times.
I decided to review the book of a person I discovered through a YouTube video rather than a book. I got to know her as I watched her commencement speech at Smith College in 2013. I fell on her bestselling book. I am speaking about Arianna Huffington who wrote Thrive where she basically redefined success through health, wellbeing, wisdom, and wonder.
This is a book written by George Leonard. The author is an aikido master. He describes in the book how this practice helps him realize increased fulfillment throughout his life. However, he does not restrict his research and his thoughts to martial arts. In fact, he draws upon many other examples from various walks of life.
I usually honor my promises. This is the first book review for “Grit” by Angela Duckworth. I read this book earlier in October 2018. I was initially fascinated by Angela’s TED talk about perseverance and passion.
