Hello fellow bookphiles and literature lovers!
I didn’t read that much last month due to the crazy schedule of holiday parties and family visits, but I luckily, I received a large stack of new reading material for Christmas! I’ve had pneumonia the past two weeks, so nothing to do but sleep and read.
The Girl Who Circumnavigated Fairyland in a Ship of Her Own Making by Catherine Valente
My wonderful husband, Keith, bought this for me after spending some time with Cat in Maine at his residency. The book follows a girl, September, who ends up in fairyland in much the way that one does, and yet is completely original. I am sipping this book slowly, as the colorful writing and descriptions are so dazzlingly beautiful I want to live in her world forever.
The E-Myth Revisited: Why Most Small Businesses Don’t Work by Michael E. Gerber
A bit of nonfiction, the E-Myth was recommended to me chiefly by my gorgeous photographer-friend, Stephanie. It’s a staple “bible” of successful small business owners, and it’s been fascinating to break down the misconceptions and misdirections that I would say most of us in small business take. I highly recommend this book to anyone who freelances or runs any part of a business, even if you’ve been doing it well.
And I’m still working through A Storm of Swords (the third book in George R.R. Martin’s Song of Ice and Fire series) on Audible, to round out my three book juggle.
