In Stacy’s Book Notes, I share the most relevant and helpful takeaways for the smart and caring from a variety of books–not just the ones you might expect.

I also add mention of my knitting or gardening just for fun.

In Stacy’s Book Quotes, you can get a quote and a photo of the book I am currently reading and my current knitting via InstagramLinkedInTwitter, or FaceBook once a week, usually on Tuesdays. Search for and follow #stacysbooknotes or #stacysbookquotes.

Newsletter subscribers will automatically receive a digest each month.

Two important notes: 

  1. I only write Stacy’s Book Notes or post Stacy’s Book Quotes for books I discover on my own or a client, student, newsletter subscriber or personal contact recommends. I do not accept free books or pay.
  2. Please note that by writing a book note or book quote, I am not necessarily recommending the book or endorsing all of the author’s ideas. I am only sharing the parts I believe would be useful to you–usuallyl because I find them useful.
