Reading: Very Good Lives

Last week, I read this great little inspiring book based on J.K. Rowlings’ Harvard commencement speech.

Here are the five things I loved about this book:

  1. Her parents, good parents, wanted her to go to college for something practical. Instead she spent the next four years with classical literature, which ended up being much better decision. I know another girl who studied the classics and it made all the difference.
  2. Be grateful for good friends & family
  3. Take risks
  4. Share your work
  5. Help others
