Bought a Book

Posted in ADHD, Books, External Links, Posts by Renee, Women at 2:55 am by bloggingawayadhd

Well, I’m supposed to be staying up late working, and I took a “short break” and checked my email. I saw an email with a coupon for 50% off a book at audible.com, so I clicked it and ended up browsing all over audible. Then, I wanted to see if audible had any of the books in my Amazon.com wishlist, so I went to Amazon, used those titles to search audible, and didn’t find any. Then, I realized I really wanted a book at Amazon.com, but that I thought I might find it cheaper somewhere else online, so I looked on half.com. After browsing all 3 sites and looking at all of the popular books, books in my wishlist, and books that have absolutely nothing to do with anything (and reducing my available awake-time for late-night working by an hour), I settled on this book: Finding Your Focus by Judith Greenbaum and Geraldine Markel

How appropriate that I wasted an hour of time and ended up buying a book about focusing :)

Anyway, I like that the book is written by women and that it has great reviews on Amazon, so I’ll let you all know whether I like it once I receive it and have a chance to read it. Has anyone else read this book? If so, leave a comment and let us know what you thought!

    Do you read novels?

    Occasionally – maybe 2-3 per year. The last I read was “The Lions of Al-Rassan” by Guy Gavriel Kay because I read one of his other books (Sailing to Sarantium) a few years ago and liked it a lot, and I heard ‘Lions’ was being made into a movie.

    I came across your blog on ADDitude Magazine’s website. Just wanted to say “hi” and let you know I was looking around. I am the mom of an 11 year old son who has ADHD & LD. Take care and I’ll be back often.

    Great, thanks for leaving a note so I know people are reading :) I hope to be back to writing more often in the near future.

    Hi Renee,

    Great Blog and I love the design. I just recently opened a new online community for those with ADHD or related to ADHD in one way or the other. I thought you might be intersted and would like to join and meet new people with ADHD and have an easy way to promote your blog to your fellow ADDers. By the way I have the book “Finding your Focus” but, alas, I have not read it.

    Have a great day,
