I've been reading and listening to lots of books this summer. A few of my favorites were.
All Along You Were Blooming byMorgan Harper Nichols. This book is beautiful and one you can open up anytime for a little inspiration. Morgan is one of my favorite follows oninstagramand she also has created a beautiful andinspiring app.
This month I had fun setting up some lists of what I'm reading and my favorite books over on bookshop.org. Bookshop.org is a cool new platform that's trying to give an alternative to Amazon that helps support local and independent booksellers.
This month I read mostly nonfiction with the exception on The Giver of Stars.
Reading brings me joy. I love listening to books while I work and I love settling down on my couch to enjoy reading at the end of the day. Some of these books made me laugh, some made me cry and others just taught me new things.
I've been thinking about what I can do to help bring a little joy and peace in this unprecedented time. Books are definitely something that brings me joy.
One of my favorite yoga teachers Kathryn Budig started a virtual bookclub called The Inky Phoenix and she had the idea for people to share some of their favorite feel good books to bring us comfort while we're hunkered down in our homes away from our friends and family.
I heard The Island of Sea Women by Lisa See was great and it did not disappoint. The characters were well developed and the story had lots of twists and turns. There were parts that made me laugh and others that made me cry. It told a story over many decades and you could see how the world changed. This story of the all women dive collectives on Jeju Island is one definitely worth reading.
