In the words of Dr. Seuss…
I love reading. Reading stretches both imagination and mind. Books can excite, inform, and create different worlds and experiences. Stories can take me to far away lands, or keep me on familiar soil. Through black printed letters, we are given secrets of past generations. What a gift to see what geniuses penned and left to future generations. What a privilege to gain knowledge through another’s mind.
This is my bay window that I recently turned into a reading nook. After a long search, Mark and I found these chocolate-colored chairs that seemed to invite us to take a seat, pick up a book, and stay a while. Inclosing them with vintage embroidered curtains, I can’t help but want to grab some coffee and a book.
I am currently reading Beneath The Night Tree by Nicole Baart. I’m about half way through and so far Baart has told a gripping, and life-like story. She is a gifted and talented writer.
I am also reading The Narnian by Alan Jacobs. It is so fun to look at C.S. Lewis’ life and get inside the imagination that created Narnia.
Next time it snows and you are trapped in your house for a day, or if it is a rainy day I challenge you to curl up with a new book. If it is warm and bright and the sun is hanging perfectly in the sky, take a book outside and read for a while. It will be fun–I promise.
If you want to keep up with what your reading or what you have read, you can go to Goodreads. On Goodreads you can rate the books you’ve read and review them.
So, what are you reading?
Let me know because I am always looking for new books to read.
