For those of you who know me personally, I am a book whore. Ever since I learned to read, I become Ms. Book Zombie in bookstores, libraries, small boutique book shops, amazon.com, and basically any store that has a book section. I vividly remember a road trip with my family down to Pennsylvania shortly after getting a grasp on reading. I would read every sign-exit sign, street sign, restaurant, and on and on and on. Fast forward 20 years and I still read before I go to bed every night, even if I have been out late dancing, or if it was a tough week at work. Reading for me is my mini-vacation.
Here's what I am currently reading and wish to finish:
The Joy Diet-Martha Beck
The Atlas of Love-Laurie Frankel (Seattle Author)
The Not So Big Life-Sarah Susanka (Part of Kimberly Wilson's online book club)
Living Your Yoga-Judith Lasater
Here's what's on the docket:
Teachings On Love-Thich Nhat Hanh
Writing Begins With the Breath-Laraine Herring
Listening Below the Noise: A Meditation on the Practice of Silence-Anne LeClaire
Living Artfully-Sarah Magsamen
Slow Is Beautiful-Cecile Andrews (Seattle Author)
Real Happiness-Sharon Salzberg
The thing about reading is that it is what grounds me. At the end of the day, when I turn off my blackberry, I put on sweatpants and make my sleepytime tea, there is nothing more self-loving that curling up with a book and enjoying your own company.
