He’s a zoologist and decides to take a year off from teaching to just live simply in a cabin in the woods. His observations of birds and their habits has got me noticing the sounds and behaviors of the birds where I live (Illinois). The magazine Taproot is another something I’ve read off and on, no ads, all just articles by people getting back to the land, natural living and simplicity.

I have way too many books, in real life and on my ipad! Ipads are nice for reading in the middle of the night (3am) when DH is sleeping cause I don’t need to turn the light on … but books are LOVELY.

I just packed a whole stack away, from my bedroom, this afternoon … gardening, cooking, saving money, going green … all the ones I dip into every now and again.

I just finished a Debbie Macomber book today, and Im still busy with Nora Ephron’s I remember nothing. language is a bit colourful but very funny.

If I read that much nonfiction at once my drama-loving brain begins to weave them all into a confusing soap opera and I can’t keep my facts straight.

I’m also reading Bring up the Bodies by Mantel and then Before the Fallout: from Marie Curie to Hiroshima. I have no idea if the Marie Curie book is going to be good, but I will read pretty much anything with her name on it.

Her writing is sublime. And I’ve just bought The Rhyming Rabbit by Julia Donaldson and Lydia Monks for my kids – what a treat! Makes kids walk around trying to rhyme simple things like, ‘it’s time for dinner, what a winner!’

I love it. But I wind up reading a chapter and putting it down. Perhaps a novel should make its way to the top of my stack. It would be good to love a story enough to finish it!

Wonderful read!

Thu, 04 Apr 2013 02:59:38 +0000 http://www.designmom.com/?p=34012#comment-451855 I absolutely loved “Imagine: How Creativity Works” by Jonah Lehrer. You have probably read it, but if you haven’t, it’s just fantastic. I found myself underlining almost constantly.

I’d guess you could probably buy the supplementary text(s) from your college bookstore.

It’s about the occupation of France during WWII and the fate of those who resisted and were caught. It focuses specifically on a group of women resisters. Fascinating and horrifying!

Next up, Speaking from Among the Bones (Flavia de Luce #5) by Alan Bradley, because now I need something light!

It always inspires me. I can’t wait to read Dare Dream Do and The Honest life. She did such a smart turn in her career. I admire her.

I mostly read on the Kindle though, so I don’t know if I can count it as time away from technology. /

There are bits and pieces I know really well, and some bits I’ve never even opened. So this is the year I get thru it all!

It has really been eye-opening. There’s so much I just thought I “knew.” But I was so wrong. There was a class in college I wanted to take – “The Bible as Literature.” Never taking that class is one of my regrets.

It’s just starting to storm outside my window, and this post is making me want to curl up with a good book. :) Nothing like reading during a rain!

Between Shades of Gray by: Ruta Sepetys http://www.betweenshadesofgray.com/

House Rules by: Jodi Picoult
http://www.amazon.com/House-Rules-Novel-Jodi-Picoult/dp/0743296443

And 9 Secrets of Women that Get Everything They Want by: Kate White It’s actually my blogs reading selection for this month as well. Lot of great tips to act on.
http://www.southnorthsouth.net/p/reading.html

I am going to look into The Honest Life. I have seen that book before and have always admired Jessica Alba, so it looks like a good read. Thanks for sharing these, I might have to add to my stack of books now. :-)

Wouldn’t mind a Kinfolk issue laying around either :)

I’m always in the middle of several books, too. Currently it’s Rational Optimist by Matt Ridley. A very hopeful look at our future.
