March Book Club: More or Less

March absolutely snuck up on me! But alas, it is here, and that means it’s time to move on to our next book—one that is very much in line with my word of the year. The book I’ve chosen is called More or Less, and it’s a book about having enough, sharing with others and choosing excessive generosity. Sounds pretty amazing, right? From Amazon…

In More or Less, Jeff Shinabarger calls readers to create their own social experiments to answer the question, “What is enough?”

It all started with one idea: What would happen if we created a culture in which we gave away whatever was more than enough for us? How would our habits change if we shed the excess of money, clutter, and food in our lives? In More or Less, readers will learn how to draw a line of “enough” in their consumer choices, how to see generosity as a chance to experience freedom in a greedy world, and how to make small changes now that will help others forever. As Shinabarger reminds them, defining “enough” is more than a responsibility—it is an opportunity to give hope.

I can’t wait to see how this book impacts my view of what I own and buy, as well as my view on generosity in general. Even though I’m not quite finished with The Body Book, I think it’s safe to say I won’t be able to resist diving into this book tonight.

Okay, let’s hear it…who’s reading along with me this month?

    I will definitely be reading this after I’m done with the current book I’m reading. This lines up perfectly with my word of the year, generosity. Plus, my husband and I are trying to downsize our possessions in the spirit of owning less. Our impending move has also motivated us to getting rid of our excess.

    I just placed my order! This came at the perfect time as I’m “spring cleaning” and re-organizing this month. Can’t wait to read about knowing where “the line” in consumerism is, and to learn more about generosity.
