Introducing Sunday Reads

I don’t know about you, but I can’t read fast enough to keep up with the information coming at me through email, social feeds, friends and more.

But, I like to read, particularly about local government, downtown revitalization, placemaking, parking and transportation, economic development and whatever else happens to capture my attention.

In an effort to help myself read more and quit keeping 20+ tabs open of articles I’m meaning to read, I’m launching this, the Sunday Reads post, to be more efficient with my time, read more and share the knowledge with all of you.

What I’m reading: books on community, revitalization, economics and food

My plan will be to share lists of what I’m reading, what I came across this week that relates to Great Falls issues and things I find interesting.

Got a good read for the week, send it my way:

Happy reading!
