When I was getting my library science degree we kept discussing the possibility of ebooks ever succeeding. This was in 2005, and there was a general consensus among the librarians-to-be that ebooks would never really take off… Now I have a crush on my Kindle, and take it everywhere with me!
These days my inner librarian is living a suppressed life, and to appease her I’m going to let a few more book recommendations seep into this blog. Here we go:
Seth Godin’s blog and books – his new little book Poke the Box is amazingly inspiring. If you feel like you need some motivation to start a new project, read it! I also love his blog, and the new publishing project with Amazon.com, The Domino Project.
A Discovery of Witches – did you love Twilight and need something new to read? In this book a witch and a vampire have a conflicted love affair, and they do yoga with humans to create peace between the species. (We all spring from the same source…)
Poser: My Life in Twenty-three Yoga Poses – new mom in Seattle’s Phinney neighborhood does yoga and muses over life, work, and motherhood. Loved the life stories, but the yoga descriptions can get a little long.
Blood, Bones & Butter – just started chef Gabrielle Hamilton’s awesome memoir, and can’t wait to read more. She jokes in an Elle magazine interview that she’s to busy to do yoga, and this book is more Anthony Bourdain than Elizabeth Gilbert.
Have fun reading!
