Many people find that summer is a good time to relax and enjoy a good book. Our team would like to share with you some of our recommended reading list that you may find helpful in making your next choice!
Brendon’s picks:
  • The Circadian Code, by Satchin Panda, PhD – when we eat may be as important as what we eat.  An in-depth explanation of the circadian clock – why it’s important, how it works and how to know it isn’t working.  Dr. Panda’s life-changing methods show you how to prevent and reverse ailments like diabetes, cancer, and dementia as well as microbiome conditions like acid reflux, heartburn and irritable bowel disease. 
    • Pick up this book if: you’re interested in living a healthy lifestyle
  • The Harley-Davidson and Indian Wars, by Allan Girdler – a colorful tour of the men and machines that competed to dominate the American motorcycle industry.  From the days when Harley-Davidsons were built in the Davidson family’s back yard to the tragic demise of the Indian Motorcycle company.
    • Pick up this book if: you like motorcycles and/or history
  • Honorable mentions
    • America’s First Motorcycle Company by Darwin Holmstrom
    • Cujo: The Untold Story of My Life On and Off the Ice by Curtis Joseph
    • Capital Gains: Smart Things I Learned Doing Stupid Stuff by Chip Gains
Molly’s picks:
  • Girl wash your face by Rachel Hollis - “You, and only you, are ultimately responsible for how happy you are.” Rachel exposes the 20 lies and misconceptions that too often hold us back from living joyfully and productively, lies we’ve told ourselves so often that we don’t even hear them anymore.  This book shows you how to live with passion and hustle—and how to give yourself grace without giving up. 
  • Next up: Katerina by James Frey. Many may be familiar with James Frey as he has been noted as one of America’s most controversial writers with his originally marketed memoirs- A Million Little Pieces and My Friend Leonard. Large parts of both books were later found out to be exaggerated or fabricated which sparked a media controversy. I look forward to his latest work as I really enjoy his writing style.
Lauralee’s pick:
  • Karmic Palmistry by Jon Saint-Germain and, no, I am not out of my mind! It’s fun & interesting stuff to me! One of beginning chapters called ‘The Law of Karma’ really captivated my attention.  I took notice of how the interpretation around the concept of Karma is fairly universal.  I thought about how many times I’ve heard comments such as, “you reap what you sow” or “what goes around comes around” and many more of the like.  So, I think, basically the concept of Karma works this way:  an initial deed (action) sets into motion a chain of events (reactions).  This chain of events leads to good or bad situations depending upon the nature of the original deed (action).  Hmmm? That isn’t such are far-fetched way to think at all, is it? …now, you’ll have to ask me later, though, how this applies to and is read in the lines on our palms, so stay tuned, I haven’t gotten that far into my book yet!       
Let us know what you think if you have read or decide to pick up one of our recommendations. Enjoy the rest of your summer and happy reading!
