Rejuvenate & Renew Challenge Update: 6/15 to 6/21

As a reminder, the Rejuvenate and Renew Challenge is about reading non-fiction that builds, teaches, focuses, or simply pushes you to improve yourself. I often get so caught up in reading my huge mountain of fiction novels, and books I need to read for teaching, that I don't often get a chance to read those "help yourself" (yes, like self help) sort of books that help me change or grow in some way.

So, how am I doing? Finished--
  1. Suze Orman's Action Plan for 2009
  2. TBA
  3. TBA
I'm still on track, but will continue reading Elie Krieger's novel. I actually also purchased her cookbook The Food You Crave, as I'd checked it out from the library a month ago and found it to be a pretty great cookbook. I'll try to make something and post a picture, and even review it with Krieger's book, Small Changes, Big Results. (For more information about Krieger's cookbook, see The Food You Crave: Luscious Recipes for a Healthy Life)

How are you doing? If you're part of the challenge, leave a comment. If you're not, join today and tell us what you'd like to read!

Well, back to the islands for me. I fly out tomorrow afternoon, and am actually looking forward to some great reading time on the plane!


  1. I want to finish the Egyptian Art book by the end of Thursday so I write about it for the bloggiesta. It's actually pretty good--I'm glad I'm making the time to read it!

  2. I checked out the Food You Crave too and really enjoyed it. Look forward to you cooking something from it and telling us what you think!!

  3. WOW...I need to read this one :) thanks
