Well, I actually do books on my iPad through Kindle but you get my drift. I dig reading.
Here are a few suggestions just in case you decide to use some of your precious time to support the written word:
1. The Perks of Being a Wallflower by Stephen Chbosky– Read the book before you see the movie. Fall in love with the book and never let it wander from your shelf. Let it seep into your authentic core and make peace with some of the things hidden there. I have read it numerous times since high school (I’m 29). It is just as amazing and relevant now as it was then.
2. Gone Girl by Gillian Flynn-I mean, why not? Everyone else is reading it. Great twists and turns. Page-turner. A bit sick. I still don’t know what to do with the rather unsettling ending. I just don’t know who to antagonize in this book.
3. A Different Mirror by Ronald Takaki– Read another version of the story behind all the stuff you learned in high school history class. I’ve read this book multiple times since college in an attempt to wrap my brain around our country’s history and the impact it still has on the present.
4. The Four Agreements: A Practical Guide to Personal Freedom by Don Miguel Ruiz–
The Four Agreements
1. Be Impeccable with your Word
2. Don’t Take Anything Personally
3. Don’t Make Assumptions
4. Always Do Your Best
Sounds like common sense but let’s be honest with each other, we ain’t all practicing these agreements on a daily basis. Are we? The answer is no. Read the book.
Fall is a great time to throw on a large sweater, leggings, warm socks, and a scarf while you get comfy on the nearest couch, grab a cup of coffee and have some one on one time with a good read. This sounds like a great time or is that just me?
