A Balanced Bookshelf

A balanced bookshelf is beneficial on many levels, from engaging your creative side, to learning new vocabulary, to improving your writing skills, and to increasing your overall knowledge on all types of subject matter.

Therefore, we at StasisLife thought it would be a really great idea to have a page dedicated to having a bookclub! Once every month, we will post a book that we think you should read from the following genres: fiction (anything from sci-fi to fantasy), non-fiction, and self-improvement. Because after all, you shouldn’t be reading just one genre of book. Life is all about balance and we believe books are a key ingredient to a balanced life.

So, for the month of September here are the finalists:

  • Fiction: Good Omens by Neil Gaiman & Terry Pratchett
    • This is a great time to start reading Good Omens if you haven’t yet done so. Especially with a T.V. show of it coming out soon. With fantastic humor in a wonderful fantasy world, it is a must read!
  • Non-Fiction: The Devil in the White City by Erik Larson
    • This is the fascinating story of a serial killer during the 1893 World’s Fair in Chicago. Larson does a fantastic job of painting a picture for you while simultaneously giving you a history lesson, which doesn’t actually feel like so much of a lesson.
  • Self-Improvement: The Power of Habit by Charles Duhigg
    • This may not be for everyone, but here at StasisLife, we strongly believe that the formation of habits can be the difference between success/balance and falling behind in life. Duhigg really finds a way to make the topic of habit interesting, and he did incredible research for this book. Give it a read if you are looking to incorporate the power of habit into your life!

Hope you all enjoy! Any feedback is very welcome, so please leave a comments and discuss with each other!
