i would say that for the past 3 years i've been wanting to do more reading... but finding (or making, rather) little time in which to read. the 2nd biggest benefit to becoming car-less, (+ public transport dependent) has been the time it's given me start reading again. (the first biggest benefit being all the walking my little feet are doing) i've read 3 books cover to cover in the last 3 weeks + feel the voracious appetite of a hungry reader upon me. (sidenote, given the somewhat nomadic nature of my lifestyle, although i would love to have an enormous room dedicated to books alone, i'm trying to only actually own books i will re-read. i'm a big fan of getting free books @ the library, or 2nd hand books for cheap, + then giving them away. + recently just discovered the literary version of netflix through a service called bookswim. check it out.) anyways, i digress. as much as i love a good, juicy, can't put it down novel... i try to be intentional with what i read at least 50% of the time. i want to read books that inspire, encourage, enlighten, + promote growth... i seem to be particularly drawn to books that can connect with me as an artist/business owner/creative person. (2 of my faves being steven pressfield's "the war of art" + haruki murakami's "what i talk about, when i talk about running." the next 3 on my list are as follows:
tim sanders' "love is the killer app".+ finally,
if anyone out there's got some other recommendations, i'd love to hear 'em. what're you reading right now???
