Humans of New York isn’t your typical book, or movement, for that matter. I respect Brandon Stanton so much for simply doing what many of us would be uncomfortable or afraid to do — approaching strangers and talking to them about their most vulnerable moments and experiences. Or the happiest ones. Flipping through his collection of stories gives me this kind of connection to complete strangers. It’s a refreshing dose of reality from time to time through a glimpse into the lives of others.
I also love quirky books like Design the Life You Love by Ayse Birsel, The Dip by Seth Godin, Scary Close by Donald Miller, and most recently The Shack by William P. Young.
I’m the worst at reading on a regular basis, I wish I made it more of a priority. But I love having a collection of books staring at me for motivation. And the idea of a kindle and have almost bought one so many times, but I just can’t bring myself to get rid of that feeling of physically turning those pages (nerd alert).
If so, send a note! I'd love to hear from you.
