I finished fewer books than usual this month, although I am not sure why.
Abundance by Peter Diamandis and Steven Kotler
This book was deeply inspiring regarding how much technology can still benefit us, not be our destruction. It was less about seeking solutions or mapping how to get somewhere and more about revealing what is already going on so to provide a foundation for building more success in a conscious way.
Cross-Functional Teams by Glenn Parker
Abstract Painting by Hennie Reimer
An odd mish-mash of an art book, some practical technique, some philosophy and mindset.
Another good book on art journaling, one that strikes a nice balance between the emotional impulse - "moving emotion from gut to page" - and the technique/art prompts. I'll keep this one.
Identity by Stedman Graham
Interesting enough personal development book while I was reading it but it didn't particularly stick.
The premise intrigued me - the young naive X-men meeting their older counterparts, one in particular who has done things they could not have imagined once. The start was interesting but I'll look to see what else occurs in the next volume before drawing a full conclusion.
My husband really likes this series, and pretty much anything Gail Simone writes (although she only worked on the last of the three in this list) and has been encouraging me to to read it so I went through the first three graphic novels this month, although there was still a lot of story missing that he said was incorporated into other collections. The character interplay between Oracle and Black Canary is definitely amusing and I'll be reading some more off his shelf.
