  1. Did you finish re-listening to Harry Potter? I’m in the middle of book 5, but Jim and I are going to start The Cursed Child anyway. He’s still at the end of book 4. We can’t wait the couple months it will take to finish our re-listen. We’ve listened so many times, it really doesn’t matter. 🙂

    • I haven’t finished listening to them. I got bogged down in #5, but am close to the end with it. I need to pick up my pace because the book club retreat where we’ll discuss the series is next month!

  2. I have seen so many people mention the Miracle Morning book – I really need to check it out. I wonder if my library has an e-book version…

  3. I’m interested in The Miracle Morning. Is there really anything new to the idea of waking up before the kids and starting on your to-do list? I’m not a morning person, but need to be. Thanks for the link up!

    • So far (I’ve only read the first two(?) chapters, the only real difference is that it’s not focused on moms. So if you don’t want a book that is targeted at why moms should get up early etc etc. then this would be a better pick.

      He also does have a real rah-rah tone – he’s got a sales background and it shows in his writing style.

      I may adjust my comments after I read more, and discover more ways his book is a unique perspective. Or I may not, if that’s really the only difference. 😉
