Book Beginning: What's Going Well?: The Question that Changes Everything by Greg Bell

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

MY BOOK BEGINNING



Since I can remember, I've been preoccupied with the question of why some people reach their full potential and others don't.

What's Going Well?: The Question that Changes Everything by Greg Bell. Greg wrote the popular and powerfully motivating book, Water the Bamboo. In his new book, he teaches how to build a habit of optimism.

Wouldn't we all like to learn to be a little more optimistic?





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.

I'll check back to see if you've put up the linky. Mine is set to post at 12:01 a.m., so I can't leave a link in the comments ... yet.

Ah, the linky didn't post I guess. I'm optimistic this will work instead :-)

Karen and I are starting the literary fiction novel Extremely Loud and Incredibly Close for our reading challenge.
