I have a stack of books in my house that I’ve thought about reading a million times over. I pick them up, leaf through a few pages and then put them back down. Some are non-fiction books like The Four Hour Work Week. I was so excited to buy a used copy of this book on half.com, but I was bored from the moment I opened it. At one point the author suggests putting down any book or reading material that fails to interest you or provide any knowledge or meaning in your life. Well I must admit that I closed that book and put it back on the shelf the minute I read that sentence.
I’m currently reading Gorgeously Green, which to be perfectly honest I find enlightening and a bit scary all at the same time. The author suggests reviewing the ingredients in all of the products you use in your home or on your body to search for and eliminate any with toxic materials. I marched upstairs, reached into the bathtub and started reading through the list of unpronounceable ingredients on my shampoo, conditioner, and moisturizers and nearly threw everything into the garbage can.
In an effort to get my mind off of the toxins leaching into my skin and hair I borrowed a copy of Confessions of a Shopaholic. I’ll probably finish this one, but 112 pages in, I’m not feeling particularly entertained by it. I sure hope the movie is more interesting.
Since I’m not having much luck in my book selections lately, I was wondering if any of have recommendations. The books can be fiction or non-fiction, but I’m hoping for something that will either inspire, enlighten, or at the very least entertain me. If you have any suggestions please leave a comment below.
