I’ve been reading so many books since my last reviews. Where to start?
For a book that will make you think, — try “Quiet: The Power of Introverts in a World that Can’t Stop Talking” by Susan Cain. Ok, maybe that describes most librarians, but I found deep thought around this topic and plenty of balm for my guilt for not being more… what? — outgoing? boisterous? charismatic? humorous?
Why can’t the world see that some just need a little space once in a while? There’s nothing wrong with that. If you agree (and even if you don’t), “Quiet” will convince you that if you’re wired such that you enjoy alone time, there is reason to create that space and hang on to it.
Oh, and there’s even a TED Talk.
