I've been reading quite a lot lately, it is summer after all. A bit of catching up was long over due, just me and the books (my husband was starting to worry I might get stuck to the sofa).
I read all sorts of genres, I'm not picky at all when it comes to books. I even read quite a lot of youth fiction which I don't tend to admit openly, simply because every one in this house makes fun of me (except of course, the little one).
I try to avoid recommending books because I think you need to know the person you are recommending the book really well, but I do love when people give me books or talk with passion about them. I usually tend to read what people recommend.
Everything I Ever Done That Worked is such a case. Tina, a blogging friend who I happened to meet for lunch some months ago told me about this book. Now I must tell you about it as well. I liked it so much that I'm breaking the rule of no recommending books.
It was really the perfect summer read. It is not a work of fiction, and I don't want to put it in the self-help category. It is simply what the title explains, and it is written in short stories. I found it inspiring, a sort of handbook for enriching your life. I couldn't put it down because I was so curious to read the next story, that I read it rather quickly, but I think it is meant to be read slowly.
I'm looking forward to re-reading bits and having it on my night stand so I can read it when I need inspiration or encouraging thoughts.
I hope you get it to read it, and I'm crossing my fingers that you like it as much as I did.
Thank you Tina for telling me about this lovely book!
** We travelled all day yesterday, and have arrived safely to our destination. The time zone is not the same so bear with me this next 2 weeks. I will tell you where I am on monday.
All the best,
