A couple months ago I joined a dear friend for a week-long working vacation in 80 degree, perfectly sunny Mexico. I was working on a new online course, Feminine Genius At Work (which will be ready for you soon, so stay tuned).
I’m not kidding with the “working vacation” thing. Really. I got a ton of work done and still had beach walk-and-talks with my friend and lazy afternoon snoozes in the hammock. And a nice little tan. The vacation part of it actually FUELED the working part of it.
Anyway, when I was checking out of the hotel, I spied a little cabinet by the door with a few stacks of books — a traveler’s library.
You know the kind: a motley mix of dogeared best-sellers, water-warped spy thrillers, and obscure German-titled paperbacks. With or without front covers. Well loved.
You know the drill: you read a book or two on your vacation and then leave ‘em in the “library” for the next traveler — and maybe even take a new-to-you one for the plane. Rinse and repeat, all over the globe.
Why didn’t I bring a few extra copies of Feminine Genius to leave there? I thought as I got in the taxi.
It hadn’t even crossed my mind to, but it would have been very cool if I had.
And I will next time.
So, would you too?
Would you stow a couple copies of Feminine Genius in your luggage next time, and leave those beauties in the travel library at your hotel, in the local cafe, or in the airport coffee shop for the next traveler to pick up — and to dog-ear, water-warp, and love well?
If you’re all stocked up with an extra two or three copies, great! You’re all set to join the Sisterhood of the Traveling Book.
If not, great!
Come and join this merry band of traveling tricksters spreading Feminine Genius into unusual locations throughout the wide world.
Not to sound like an infomercial, but when you purchase one (or more) copies of Feminine Genius, you not only get my heartfelt, tail-wagging thanks, you also get two bonuses. A masterclass with me on your “Oracle,” the compass between your thighs as I cheekily call it. And my Book Club Kit, including my best practices for creating a women’s group, to journey through Feminine Genius together.
When you purchase 3 (or more) copies of Feminine Genius, you can also get my Cyclical Self-Care Guide, the “map” I use to track my moods and energy ups and downs, for more graceful time-management, scheduling, and organization.
Ten (or more) copies of Feminine Genius gets you a free 60-minute coaching session with me.
Simply email support [at] liyanasilver [dot] com with your receipt and what bonuses you want, we’ll get you all set up along with a big high five.
Viva Sisterhood of the Traveling Book!
PS: One of my favorite novels ever, The Time Traveler’s Wife, I found in a traveler’s library on the tiny island of Gili Trawangan in Lombok, Indonesia. It’s still on my bookshelf, dogeared, water-warped, and well, well loved.
I believe that books need to do a little world traveling, too.
