Today's Unfamiliar Pleasure: I usually write by the seat of my pants so I thought it might be fun to showcase different topics for a few days. I was inspired by this little quote that I saw in Country Living Magazine. It made me think about how much I love the escape of a good book. (Took this next photo at Anthropologie on Sunday. I'll have lots of yummy pics for you later.)
Last Spring I purposefully set out to read more often. I've always loved to read. I was the kid that built a fort in the pasture and used my pony to carry books back and forth to the "cabin". Then I pretended I was snowed in for a long Winter - just me and my horse and my books. But as I've had children, the reading time has dwindled. Part of renewing my mind this last year has been picking the books up again and heading toward the cabin corner of my mind.
So I'm finishing up book #18 and eager to start the next one. I picked up a whole bunch of books from the Goodwill over the weekend for less than $1 each!!
Design your own book cover, using your own photos and text. Here's a fun one for kids to use their own art to design a book cover.
What's your favorite book? Where's your favorite place to read?
