December. A month filled with shopping, festivities, gift giving, eating….and Reading? Yup, December also happens to be “Read a New Book Month” so allow me to diverge from nutrition an exercise posts for the day! (Besides – Reading is to the mind, what exercise is to the body!!). I LOVED reading for fun growing up, but with my current schedule and obligations I do not allow myself to crack open a book other than a text-book. However, I am planning on buying a few “for fun” books to read while traveling this holiday season and I hope each of you take the time to read something enjoyable as well! Here is what I am hoping to read this month:
White Planet: A Mad Dash Through Modern Global Ski Culture by Leslie Anthony
In Defense of Food: An Eater’s Manifesto by Michael Pollan
Love Story by Erich Segal *Note – I read this book years ago. If you remember the Mandy Moore Movie “A Walk to Remember”, this book is similar, but was written way before A Walk to Remember. Also, it takes place in Massachusetts – aka Bonus points for it!
A Walk in the Woods by Bill Bryson
What book(s) do you plan to read this month? Any suggestions for me? (I don’t like the following: scary, magical/non real (aka Harry Potter / vampire books), or too much history)!
