What book is in your bag?

It’s normal to see books inside a student’s bag, but you don’t see one in just anyone’s bag. When I was in college, I’d manage to sneak a novel or non-school related reading material into whatever schoolbag I take with me. It doesn’t matter that it makes my stuff heavier.

These days, I’ve been toting this book along with me to work:

It’s one of the two books I received from BookSneeze last month. I posted the review for the first one a week after receiving them, but this one I have yet to finish reading. But truth be told, I liked the first few chapters that I’ve read. I think the gist of the message is to live your life in a way that after your death, your work lives on. Your life work outlives you.

And no one is excluded from that call to do something. No matter who you are, where you are, or what your circumstances are, there is always a higher calling for you. You don’t need to present detailed curriculum vitae or to have an extensive medical resume to be called to act. You can help in any way, or shape that you can.

I’ve still a few chapters to go, and I’m excited to do this review. Stay tuned! Smile

Now what about you, what book is in your bag?
