As I may have mentioned here before I have a bittersweet relationship with books. First, I love books. I love going to book stores. I love looking at all the beautiful covers and reading their descriptions. I get excited at the thought of adsorbing the information they can give. I love their stories. If I could I’d have a whole library of books in my house.
But, there’s one problem. I really don’t enjoy reading. Every year I try. I hit up Amazon, order books with the absolute best intentions, read a few pages, and then I’m done. It’s horrible. I guess I have a hard time sitting still. I want to be doing and creating.
But, here I am again, ordered books from Amazon, best intention in my heart, we’ll see how this goes.
I actually ran came across these three books from various sources … blog land, instagram, magazines. So I ordered The Seven Spiritual Laws of Success by Deepak Chopra (I think I found a quote I liked by this author) , Heaven is Here by Stepanie Nielson (she has a blog and is in Holiday with Matthew Mead), and The Accidental Creative (found from an Instagram picture posted by Centsational Girl [at least I think it was her]).
All of these books seems to have great reviews. So, again armed with the best intentions, I’m hoping to read at least read two of these at some point this summer. It will be a good excuse to step away from my darn computer, soak up the sun, and escape a bit.
Oh, and I also purchased The Fault in Our Stars a couple months back. That is also on my reading list. I just remember this and it was of course after I took these photos. Oops!
Have you read any of these books? Thoughts?
What’s on your reading list this summer? Or are you like me and would rather be out doing rather than sitting and reading?
