When
When: The Scientific Secrets of Perfect Timing - Daniel H. Pink

This is one of those books I think everyone should read.  Daniel Pink explains that instead of a "how to" book, he sees this as a "when to" book.  We all have daily cycles, with a peak and a trough.  For most of us, the trough is in the afternoon--typically around 2:00-3:00 (though that varies by individual).  Making important decisions during our "trough" period, according to Pink, is a terrible idea.  Surgical errors are much more likely in the afternoon, than in any other time frame.  Though there are certain types of activities that can be performed successfully during the "trough" time, so planning tasks according to our own cycles is a useful strategy.

 

Just as there are daily cycles in every person's day, there are lifetime cycles, economic cycles, and others.  Pink offers useful information and strategies on the various types of cycles--offering ways to become a "time hacker."  There are hacks to use as an individual as well as synchronizing groups.  Having listened to the audiobook, there are points I plan to review in the print book.  I might actually buy this one.

Pink and Say - Patricia Polacco

You better bring some tissues when you sit down to read this text, because you are going to need them! Patricia Polacco is the author and illustrator of this profound piece of children's literature. Polacco introduces us to the true story of two young soldiers. Many of Polacco's works are based on true stories, and this one packs a punch. This text is perfect for lessons about the civil war. I recently used this text to write my own lesson plan; I required students to read the text and research their state's role in the civil war. The students were then asked to write a persuasive piece detailing why they would or why they would not live in their state during the civil war.

Review For: Buying the Heiress by Stella Stone
Buying the Heiress (Alpha Billionaires Book 1) - Stella Stone,Stella Stone,Pink Ink Design

Buying the Heiress by Stella Stone is the story of Sterling Montgomery and Tilly Harrington.  
Tilly finds herself on a auction block after her former rich parents can't pay their bills.  Tilly is not sure what will happen next to her but when she looks up she sees Sterling in the buying room.
Sterling and his other rich friends are board of the same old same old.  When one of them invites them to go to an auction to break up their boredom they go for it. Sterling thinking this is a dumb ideal until he looks up and sees Tilly.  Sterling knows of Tilly through what he has heard trough her parents circle.  But when he sees her at the auction he knows that she is his.
This was a hot, quick instant love book.   This was my first book by this author but I so enjoyed this one that I hope to read more of her books soon.

Murder Strikes Pink - Josephine Pullein-Thompson

Like most girls, I first encountered the Pullein-Thompson sisters by reading one of their horse books. In my case, it was the bound volume of Black Beauty’s Family, which is criminally underrated and includes a better horse in WWI story than Warhorse. The BBF was so good that years later when as an adult, I received two other collections by sisters from friend who was saying, “I know they are kid books, but”, I interrupted with, “awesome”. I wasn’t aware that they had written adult novels until this book was offered free for kindle (Endeavour press is awesome).

Murder Strikes Pink is a mystery about the death of a wealthy and waspy show jumper owner who no one seems to like and everyone seems to be in some fear of. The cast of characters is pretty standard for any British mystery. It has a Midsomer Murders type of appeal. 

There is so disquiet and gloss over. Honesty, one problem is a bit too easily solved. Yet, it has the small English village charm of a Christie. What Pullein-Thompson gets much credit for her is her use of characters – no one is perfect and everyone is really human.
