I imagine I'm not alone when I wish for more time to read.
These days, if I'm going to make it through a book,
I've got to be sucked in from page one or I'm moving on.
Having the perceptive & fun-loving friend that I do in Tracy,
she knew exactly what book to put in my hands:
"The Happiness Project" by Gretchen Rubin.
This is a funny, insightful and fast read.
So Tracy, this quote is for you:
"Gretchen Rubin had an epiphany....'The days are long,
but the years are short,' she realized.
'Time is passing and I'm not focusing on the things
that really matter.' In that moment she decided to
dedicate a year to her happiness project."
What a great addition to the summer reading list.
If you have young readers in your life
meet the just published "Chamelia" by Ethan Long.
My copy arrived today and I can attest to the
charming illustrations, all of which were
done in digital collage. For each of Chamelia's outfits,
and she has many, Ethan Long used fabric prints
from Alexander Henry Fabrics, Inc..
The sweet, short story sends a positive
message about learning how to let your light shine
without outshining everyone around you.
I chose this book for someone special in my life.
She's 2.5 months old, and has
the most edible face you've ever seen.
I want to let her know
she should always let her light shine!
