It's Lit: Six "Real World Reads" to add to your fall reading list / by Jasmine Tate

I’ve planned to read 12 books for the past two years. I haven’t achieved this yet, but this year I’m getting close. I started working toward a dozen with “The Wait” by Meagan Good and Devon Franklin. After diving back into the communications with TGR Foundation, I revisited assigned readings from grad school.

I’m currently reading “Social Media: How to Engage, Share and Connect” by Regina Luttrell taking tips from her experiences interviews and communications model. With social media being a big part of my responsibilities, I’ve enjoyed learning from an experienced practitioner with input and advice from other legends in the marketing, public relations and communications disciplines.

While I may not get to them all or reach my goal before the end of 2018 the following books are on my reading list. The best way to finish is to get started, and I believe 2019 will be the year I check a dozen books off my list of annual goals.
