Like most people who love to read finding time is a huge barrier in our reading life. I have to say though, over the summer the kids, especially Dart and I did lots of reading. I'm really trying hard to keep my reading streak going. Right now I've kind of shifted from books for pleasure to books about business.
The book I'm currently reading is Craft, Inc.: Turn Your Creative Hobby into a Business. So far I really love this book. I've checked it out a few times and just never got around to really diving into it like I wanted. I've learned a few things from it and have already started applying them to Pink Owl Crafts.
Others on my list of to read soon include:
Kick-Ass Creativity: An Energy Makeover for Artists, Explorers, and Creative Professionals. I had it checked out from the library and started it. About 5 pages in I realized I LOVED the book and so I decided to order it so I could highlight all the important stuff. I started Craft Inc while I waited on this to come in so as soon as I finish the other one I'm starting this book!
The Creative Habit: Learn It and Use It for Life. I've had this book for a while and recently added it to the read soon stack. I've kind of skimmed it and am excited to start it soon.
The Handmade Marketplace: How to Sell Your Crafts Locally, Globally, and On-Line. Another that I've checked out from the library a few times and never really read like I wanted to. Next time I have a break in books I am reading this one!
Any other great crafty business books or craft books I should add to my list?
