With summer right around the corner (I personally consider the May long weekend to be the start of summer), I have been stacking up a summer reading list & in time for the Victoria Day Long Weekend (pretty ready for another cottage weekend).
“Books are a uniquely portable magic.” – Stephen King
My bookshelf consists of beachy reads, classic rock bibliographies/autobiographies, self-help books (I like learning about topics that interest me) & pretty much any sort of fiction. Here is a what the bookshelf in my room currently looks like, keep in mind I have now moved so many books into boxes downstairs & am trying to keep my favourites/TBR on my shelf in my room!
I am what one would call a book hoarder, I am not allowed to buy books at the moment (jokes on my parents… I just orders a bunch to my work address instead of the house). You know that quote ‘Money can’t buy happiness but it can buy books which is kind of the same thing’ that was written with me in mind clearly. I usually carry one almost anywhere I go (almost always have one tucked into my bag.. if i have a bag that day), you never know when you may want to get a quick chapter in, or as Lemony Snicket once said ““Never trust anyone who has not brought a book with them.”
I love learning from what I read or loosing myself in a character/book. Reading is a pure pleasure for me!
Right now I am currently reading:
Peace is Every Breath by Thich Nhat Hanh
Here is a quick blurb about Peace is Every Breath. I also posted a quote from the book the other day that really spoke to me, you can read it here!
Thich Nhat Hanh is one of the most revered spiritual leaders in the world today—offers an insightful guide to living a fuller life. In this deeply insightful meditation, he illuminates how each of us can incorporate the practice of mindfulness into our every waking moment. Peace Is Every Breath opens a pathway to greater spiritual fulfillment through its patient examination of how we live our lives.
I fly through books & already feel like I have learned so much about subconsciously adding meditation into your daily habits, thank you Thich Nhat Hanh for breaking down each habit into a how to! If you are interested in meditation, I 100% recommend this book!
Now onto the important part & the reason why I originally started writing this post…
