What does the Eltham Library Branch Manager read?

I have been a Library Branch Manager for over 30 years.

Over that time my reading interests have slightly varied, but generally it has remained the same.

What has changed has been the format. I have moved from hard copy to, ebooks, to audiobooks.

Here are a few of my recent highlighted reads:

The Emotionally Sensitive Person

This is a very practical book with lots of insights into how to control your high sensitivity when you are under stress through behavioural and mindfulness techniques. The book also includes a test to see where you are on the scale of sensitivity. The author, Karyn, is an emotionally sensitive person so she writes from a place of understanding.

Daring Greatly

Brene is a wonderful storyteller and a writer who I found gets to the heart of issues, such as being happy with your own abilities.

Atomic Habits

In this book James suggests it is our system, not us that are the cause of our inability to break habits. We need to look rise to our goals to be successful.

Fight Cancer With A Ketogenic Diet

I have always had a strong interest in nutrition, but it became essential when my mother was diagnosed with Dementia and my girlfriend and husband were diagnosed with cancer.

This book is one of many that I have read about the Ketogenic diet, but it is one of my favourites. I found it easy to read with great examples of what a Keto diet looks like.

Finally, you may now be thinking that I only read non-fiction!

This is so not true. In my busy stressful life I need some “de-stress” time and for that I turn to Romance Fiction. My favourite romance authors are Kristen Ashley, Susan Elizabeth Phillips and Penny Reid. Authors who write about strong women who are in control of their destiny.

So what does a Library Branch Manager read?

I don’t know about other branch managers, but I love Romance Fiction, nutrition and, self-improvement books. Sometimes I deviate away from these areas, but mainly these are my go-to interest areas.
