If you could please just bring me food and wood every once and a while. I'll just be living in this tiny cabin reading all of the books!!
So, I didn't read much in September. In fact the book that I read to read on vacation remained in my suitcase. Although, I did manage to catch up on reading my magazines.
All the Light We Cannot See by Anthony Doerr was completely engaging. I was absolutely entranced by the story and the characters. It has been awhile since a book swept me up into it and I was lost to the world. 4/5
Real Artists Have Day Jobs by Sara Benincasa is a must read even if you aren't an artist trying to make your way in the world! She has such a refreshing voice and point of view. I also greatly appreciate how she talks about depression and how she found her way through it. 5/5
African Textiles Today by Chris Spring was beautiful. I love textiles so this book was like food for my soul. It was a really great look at the history and language of African Textiles and how they are being used today. 4/5
Losing My Virginity: How I survived, Had Fun, and Made a Fortune Doing Business My Way by Richard Branson. The first section is a bit like navel gazing and quite honestly Richard Branson in the 70s was a bit sexist. It does get better and I found the most intriguing parts were when he was challenging the status quo. An interesting read but not the best book. 3/5
Have you read anything new lately?
