Book Beginning: A Year of Living Kindly: Choices That Will Change Your Life and the World Around You by Donna Cameron

BOOK BEGINNINGS ON FRIDAYS
THANKS FOR JOINING ME ON FRIDAYS FOR BOOK BEGINNING FUN!

MY BOOK BEGINNING



Stories of kindness are everywhere . . . if we look for them.

-- from Chapter 1, "Being Nice Isn't the Same as Being Kind," in A Year of Living Kindly: Choices That Will Change Your Life and the World Around You by Donna Cameron.

I loved the idea of this book as soon as it caught my eye. I can't wait to dive in and the title of the first chapter intrigues me. What does this mean, being nice isn't the same as being kind?




Please join me every Friday to share the first sentence (or so) of the book you are reading, along with your initial thoughts about the sentence, impressions of the book, or anything else the opener inspires. Please remember to include the title of the book and the author’s name.

EARLY BIRDS & SLOWPOKES: This weekly post goes up Thursday evening for those who like to get their posts up and linked early on. But feel free to add a link all week.

FACEBOOK: Rose City Reader has a Facebook page where I post about new and favorite books, book events, and other bookish tidbits, as well as link to blog posts. I'd love a "Like" on the page! You can go to the page here to Like it. I am happy to Like you back if you have a blog or professional Facebook page, so please leave a comment with a link and I will find you.

TWITTER, ETC: If you are on Twitter, Instagram, Google+, or other social media, please post using the hash tag #BookBeginnings. I try to follow all Book  Beginnings participants on whatever interweb sites you are on, so please let me know if I have missed any and I will catch up.

TIE IN: The Friday 56 hosted by Freda's Voice is a natural tie in with this event and there is a lot of cross over, so many people combine the two. The idea is to post a teaser from page 56 of the book you are reading and share a link to your post. Find details and the Linky for your Friday 56 post on Freda’s Voice.

  3. Funny, I just read a book that explained the difference between nice and kind. Oddly, it was about improving brain function.

  4. Oh Wow!

    I read your question about the difference between 'kind' and 'nice', so checked out a few more of the opening lines of the book on Amazon.

    Big Mistake! From Donna's interpretation at least, I appear to be quite a 'nice' person, but that in no way makes me a 'kind' person. The differences could not be any more clearly written, so perhaps I need to keep on reading this first chapter at least ...

    Look out for the new 'kind' me soon :)

    Thanks for sharing and enjoy the book :)
