I’ve been away for a bit, and so there was no challenge last week, but I brought back some treasures with me… books that belonged to my mother.
If you love to read (and my guess is that most of you do), you probably have a few favorites – books that you would have tried to save if the house were on fire, before e-readers put them in the cloud for you.
What books do you rely on? Do you have a Bible or other religious scripture at your bedside? Is there some book you keep close, because you just love reading it again and again?
This week’s challenge is to think about what books you would take with you to your next home, if you only had space for a limited number. And, maybe, which would you give away?
As part of my retirement theme, I offer this weekly Thursday “Future Challenge” to get people of all ages thinking in general about their futures and/or retirement. Each challenge goes with a post of my own on the same general topic. Hopefully we’ll start some interesting discussions!
If you’d like to share what you think, or post on it, that’s great – and I’d love it if you’d share those thoughts in a post or comment (please tag posts TRS Future Challenge and link to this post) so others can also see them.
If you choose not to share them, that’s fine too – but with any luck, you’ll still gain some insight on where you’re headed (or would like to be), and how you can get the most out of your own journey.
For my own take on this week’s challenge, see my post The Portable Magic of Books.
