February reads.

One of my New Year’s Resolutions is to read more in 2017. Here are the books I picked up in February. The genres I read this month were (in order): nonfiction and fiction.

The Responsible Company – Yvon Chouinard & Vincent Stanley

For a while, I’ve been very intrigued by socially responsible businesses. How can companies make ethically sourced products and have superior company culture without sacrificing quality, efficiency or cost? As Patagonia can attest, it’s really difficult. But it is also very well worth the effort. This book is a brief look at how Patagonia became the company it is today and how more companies can emulate its learnings to create a more positive change in our world. If you’re a business major, I’d even go so far to say it is a must-read if you’re at all interested in corporate social responsibility.

Lucky You – Erika Carter

I was a part of the Book of the Month Club for a while and I received this book. Honestly, I didn’t enjoy it. It follows the stories of three women in their twenties in Arkansas as they navigate what their lives are becoming. I related to the characters on some level because I’m obviously in my twenties trying to figure out who I am, too, but their characters are very self-destructive. The entire time I was reading the book, I just wanted them to stop feeling sorry for themselves and be productive. Instead, they find themselves entangled in a potential hippie commune. There really isn’t a resolution, which might be what bugs me about it.

Next up: Citizen – Claudia Rankine

What good books did you read last month?

  1. Why me? By Mindy Kaling! I LOVE her and loved her first book, so I was stoked to finally get around to reading the second one. I would check it out if you haven’t already!

      1. Of course! OMG if you haven’t read the first one then two suggestions! I love them because I really do feel like we’re two friends just sitting around gabbing. Good luck! 🙂
