Some Light Reading
One of the things i love best is to curl up in bed with a good book. Here's a list of some books i'm reading (yes i read more than one at a time) and loving. And, since it's Black History Month, i'm reading a few books to celebrate diversity and black culture.
Sweetness in the Belly by Camilla Gibb - a fantastic novel set in Ethiopia and London. Divine.
A Sunday at the Pool in Kigali by Gib Courtemanche - a fictional story set in war-torn Rwanda.
Stolen Harvest by Pandana Shiva - a look at the impacts of globalization and corporate agriculture on small farmers and the environment. Chilling and moving.
Contemporary Quilts - the picture above is a wonderful quilt called "Oxfam Quilt" that's from vintage linens. Right up my alley.
Love Letters, Lost - this is a book where the editor found old love letters and compiled them to make a lovely coffee table book. I bought it for J for Vday. And for me, it's so beautiful.
As an aside, thanks for all the support lately. i have such a great bunch of friends! I thought after such a big post, we all need to be reminded of taking care of ourselves. I do this by reading.
