Although my free reading time has been reduced a bit since having Emerson, I still try to carve out time nearly every day to read. This usually happens first thing in the morning while I drink my coffee or during my lunch break.
I attend a once monthly book club which gets me out of my comfort zone so I have been reading a lot of books and genres I would normally never consider. I also get emails from pocket which suggests great articles to read. Here are a few of my favorite reads lately:
When Breath Becomes Air: I absolutely devoured this book. I didn’t want to put it down and I didn’t want it to end. I can’t stop thinking about his beautiful writing style, and I am tempted to start it over again. It’s a short, but extremely powerful, read.
Fighting childhood loneliness: Boy teams up with principal for first U.S. buddy bench: This story is so adorable! As an introvert, I totally would have loved to have had a buddy bench at my school.
All the Light We Cannot See: There is a reason thus won a Pulitzer. It’s beautiful and creative and an all around great read. This historical fiction book goes back and forth between two characters’ stories. I wanted so badly to continue reading after each chapter because I had to know what would happen next. That’s the best kind of novel.
How Neuroscientists Explain the Mind Clearing Magic of Running: I am someone who gets incredibly crabby and foggy without a run or a good workout, so I already knew that this was true. This is a fascinating article for a non-runners and runners alike, which explains just how important it is to get moving.
For New Parents, Dad May Be The One Missing The Most Sleep: As the great sleeper in the family, this is probably true. (I am sure my husband would say it’s true!) Also, we need mandatory parental work leave in this country. #getittogetherusa
What are you reading right now? Are you in a book club?
I kinda want to start an articles club, “because, honestly, who ever finishes the book on time?” Would you join one?
