Books that are making me very happy while I am hunkered down with day 21 of sore throat:
A Year of Mornings: 3191 Miles Apart: I remember seeing this web site years ago and was struck by the photography and simplicity of their idea: a daily photo conversation between two friends that live 3,191 miles apart. It is now a book, and has a mysterious, elemental beauty that is striking and resonant.
Be Yourself, Everyone Else is Already Taken: Transform Your Life with the Power of Authenticity My pal, Mike Robbins (author of Focus on the Good Stuff) just came out with his newest book. I like how authenticity is making a comeback, how we are connecting again to what it means to be our true selves and the power we can find in that one promise to ourself.
The Bright Side of Disaster: A Novel Just started Katherine Center’s debut book on the airplane and she had me hooked immediately. Very fun and easy to enjoy.
Love Walked In I know nothing about this book and haven’t opened it yet, but the cover appeals to me so much I will happily just put it by my nightstand to look pretty.
Because I Love Her This collection of essays is such a powerful, funny and moving look at having a daughter and being a daughter. It’s a great gift for mother’s day.
The Creative Family: How to Encourage Imagination and Nurture Family Connections Another book that had me at the cover! I’m looking forward to soaking in Amanda Soule’s philosophy on parenting and creative living.
