Reading in Bed





I stayed up too late last night reading Cheryl Strayed's new book Wild.
It's just one of those books that is difficult to put down.
The first chapter is frank and grounds you with a jolt.
Then the book begins to soar...her style of writing is so easily devoured
 if not careful you could read it in one sitting,
but I don't want to hurry through.

So out come the magazines.
Rowan, Selvedge and Kinfolk.
Some visual stimulation before work.

My new hiking boots wait by the door...

    1. It's definitely worth reading!
      Can you recommend any books on Herbal Remedies?
      You and Carrie will be my wild stuff mentors!
      Kinfolk is sooooooooo lovely!
      I carry it back and forth with me to work, just waiting for a moment to gobble up a photo and story.

    3. I tried to send you the links, but didn't see your contact info. Would you email me and I'll send them to you. Thanks, love.

  4. Now see I would have blown through the whole thing by staying up all night, and then have been really sad that the story was over. You have way more self control than I do :)
