I used to read, a lot – like a book a week, when I was commuting to work. Then I had kids, I still read pretty often but at that point it was mostly books about buns in the oven, boobs and milk. Then I starting blogging/working from home and my reading pretty much went to zlitch.
Last year I vowed to read more, I didn’t do as well as I had hoped (see also: not very well at all) – but I did read more, going from nothing to something is well, something. I am coining 2014 THE YEAR OF THE BOOK WORM, I have a new book and I am read to go – I hope/plan to read a book a month. I figure if I can find time to practice yoga once a day I can find time to read. These are some of the books I really want to get to this year (a pretty wide range of topics, I like a little of this and that and everything in between), and I’m sure once I get rolling there will be many I want to add to this list.
1ST ROW: a house in the sky – present shock – burial rites
2ND ROW: the tipping point – detroit – the goldfinch
3RD ROW: the wisdom of yoga – it – i forgot to remember
4TH ROW: last night at the viper room – the seven spiritual laws for parents – inside
A couple months ago I read Brain On Fire and Orange Is The New Black – both were really really great. I’m a big fan of Non-Ficton and self help books (I like books I can learn from), but a drop of Fiction here or there is also really great. There are always so many books I want to read, but I get caught up in the sticker price (I like to own a book so I can pass it on, part of the fun) and then time (usually I tell myself it’s the lack of time) talks me out of doing it – this year, I’m not going to let any of those excuses into my home.
Are you like me and need to get your nose in a book more? Or do you read a lot, if so tell me about some of the great books you have read lately?
*someone once told me, that you can tell a lot about someone by the books they read – pretty sure I just gave that person a whole lot of all over the place information, about myself.
