I love to read, and I mostly read non-fiction books in the form of biographies, life adventures, how-to’s, organic living and eco friendly.
Some of my faves in the pic above are:
– The Handmade Marketplace: How to Sell Your Crafts Locally, Globally, and Online by Kari Chapin. Great advice and tips for setting up a crafty business.
– The Wonderful Weekend Book: Reclaim Life’s Simple Pleasures by Elspeth Thompson. I like to pick this book up from time to time to remind me how to reclaim the weekend and spend some family time.
– Living The Good Life by Linda Cockburn. As the description of this book says “For six months, Linda Cockburn and her family grew, made, or bartered for their food, generated their own power, collected their own rainwater, and aimed not to spend a single penny.” This book inspires me to think about what can be done to live a sustainable life if you put your mind to it. I love her honest diary type entries. Her blog is equally inspiring, and if you are stopping by please send Linda and her son Caleb some good thoughts for her partner Trev, who is very ill.
– Bill Bryson. Anything by Bill Bryson. He is laugh out loud funny for me, and I love the tales of his travels. I used to read his books on The Tube when I loved in London, and would laugh out loud (to some very strange looks from fellow commuters).
– A Slice of Organic Life by Sheherazade Goldsmith. The photographs in this book are just beautiful. All about self-sufficiency and living an organic lifestyle. Think jam making, herb planting and keeping chickens.
