Another nice day, a bit warmer and quite still, 84F.

Audible was yelling at me yesterday, saying I had to use up one of my credits, so I picked something kind of on a whim... the 1936 classic, How to Win Friends and Influence People, by Dale Carnegie. It's the daddy of all the self help books and has intrigued me for a while. I'm just in the introduction right now, but who knows- it may change my life ;)
