I was watching Oprah the other day (I DVR her show so I'm not tempted to watch it instead of painting) when she interviewed Laura Bush and said to her, "You are the only other person who loves books as much as I do," and I wanted to shout, "ME TOO!!".
I decided to help get out the word about good books and reading in general. To start, I'll be reviewing books from time to time on my blog.
Books actually compliment my art business nicely because there is nothing more calming than reading before bed and reading to quiet the brain. Reading is one thing that requires total concentration and it is one of the only activities where you can't multitask. (I have tried reading a book while on the treadmill and it was a very poor workout.) Reading is the best remedy for an over-thinker like me!
My first review is a list of the books I've read so far this year and rate them 1-5, 5 being the best. After this post, I'll review as I read. These links also connect to Amazon. I am testing out a new affiliate program with them since I buy so many books with them. If you buy through these links, I'll get a little extra change. THANKS! Elisabeth
