December is Read a New Book Month

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)!

Some good books (Just thinking about what pops to my midnd!)..Sarah’s Key, The Help, Devil in the White City…Happy Reading!!

    I’ve heard the Hunger Games series is really good. It on my list to read still. I did read the Girl with the Dragon Tattoo series, takes a little bit to get into, but also very good.

    In Defense of Food… Read it! It is a pretty quick read (well at least it was for me) but excellent. The only thing I find sad is that Michael Pollen, uber popular and is quoted EVERYWHERE when it comes to nutrition etc. is not a RD. I just wish he was since he is a go-to for many when it comes to food and nutrition.

      I agree with you. Let’s find a way to get him in to a quick Internship and get that RD credential! I have read Omnivore’s Dilemna from him, and am looking forward to In Defense of Food.
