These have been on my bookshelf in the last two weeks. “The Still Point of the Turning World” had me crying from page one. She doesn’t spare the reader, the book starts with a punch and continues. I cried a lot. But I see a lot of things in my parenting differently. “Prodigal Summer” is all about sex, but it’s not what you thought just now. A novel describing the shared animality of humans, regardless of their efforts to subdue nature. Three interwoven stories set in the magnificent Appalachia. One of my favorites books of all time.
Pippi Longstocking is just so full of awesome. I love her to pieces. Yes yes, I read it to the kids, of course ;)
Two books that are on my iPad:
The One Skill: How Mastering the Art of Letting Go Will Change Your Life. It’s free, just grab it, it’s a quick read and it will at the very least make you think.
The freaks shall inherit the Earth. It’s a business book. I’m about halfway now and have been taking notes frantically. Planning, listing. The chapter on discipline and the daily structure, just what I needed to read right now.
And one book for the future: The Nesting Place. I think it’s the first time that I saw a book about home decor and got excited.
Have a wonderful weekend and see you on Monday.
