You will never find me without a book (or three) on the go. I am not sure I know who I am without books; they have been a constant in my life since I can remember, and reading brings me joy day after day, especially when the world feels tough. I love stories, but never seem to read enough fiction. What I particularly love is non-fiction. The stuff of the world, how things work, what people think about things, and why. I read to find out more, and to understand myself better.
Each month in my newsletter I highlight a book I've been reading. Sometimes these books are about making specifically, often they are about the creative process in general. They are usually insightful and offer inspiration to the creative person searching for their own way. It seemed a shame that these musings only exist in the spam folders or trash bins of a handful of people's email accounts (really hoping that isn't true!) so I thought I would resurrect them here on the blog.
Some of the entries I've updated, some are exactly as they were when I wrote them months ago. Some are season-specific, and so may seem a bit out of place here in spring. Some are short and sweet, others go into more detail. All the 'reviews' are entirely my opinion and are not literary criticism - just one woman's subjective view on things, which you may or may not find helpful to your situation. Welcome to my reading world!
