If you are a New Year’s resolution maker, then we at Career Contessa think it’s a safe bet to guess that something about reading more crept onto your list this year. Technology is amazing and we love having an infinite amount of resources at our fingertips, but sometimes your eyes and thumbs (texting carpal tunnel is a real thing) need a break. And need we remind you of the dangers of blue screens before bed? We didn’t think so. So if you have fallen off the wagon with your resolutions already, pick up one of these books and dedicate your lunch break or Saturday morning to some good old fashioned self-improvement.
