Wichita, KS (PRWEB) July 05, 2011
After a difficult breakup, Kristian Strom, a seller of rare and antiquarian books, decides to challenge himself by cultivating a number of healthy habits over the next year.
"Last month, I found myself beginning to slip into the once familiar forest of depression (I think I realized this on the night I listened to the last track- "Still Life"- on the new Bob Schneider album for the seventh time in a row), so instead of dwelling on the negative, I have made a decision to begin cultivating (or in several cases re-cultivating) some positive habits in my life. They say it takes 21 days for a habit to become part of your routine. I'm not sure I agree with whoever says that, or at least I would have to add that it only takes a long weekend in New Orleans to fall right back out of any one. My 21 Day challenges will simply consist of taking action 21 days of each month, because I know that life happens, my schedule is usually booked pretty solid and I want to set a goal that is attainable without being daunting."
Here is the slated schedule of 21-Day Challenges:
June: Begin the Project with the Abridged 21 Day Reading & Writing Challenge, to be continued throughout the year...
July: 21 Days of Walking the Dog / 21 Days of Writing Letters
August: 21 Days of Family / 21 Days of Vacation

Kristian is encouraging his friends, family members and readers of his blog to join him on their own version of a 21-Day Challenge, and is giving out free 2011 Calendars to anyone willing to rise to the occasion. Join him on his journey at http://www.kristianstrom.com. You can also view his inventory of one-of-a-kind rare books at http://www.lowestcostbooks.com
Lowest Cost Books was started in the basement of this guy named Kristian in the summer of 2001. Disenfranchised with his slew of typical nine to five jobs (including a stint as the Nutcracker, Easter Bunny, and Santa Claus at a Holiday Gift Store, working at an ice cream shop in Nantucket, mowing lawns, walking dogs, accounts receivable, furniture salesman, etc.) Kristian began selling his families' old books on the Internet as a hobby, and it quickly grew into a passionate pursuit and full-time job. He now spends his time traveling around the Midwest on the hunt for the most exciting books he can find. The rest of his waking hours are spent either in his basement/library at the computer or out on the golf course when he needs some fresh air. He sells books of his own primarily, but also sells rare books for the Wichita, Andover, Newton, Salina, Hutchinson and Manhattan Public Libraries.
