Love to read/love to talk about books?
This is my first ever blog and I would love to exchange ideas and tips about great books. I love mindfulness quotes and think it would be great if we could exchange some. I am currently reading two books one is called “The Gratitude diaries” by Janice Kaplan which deals with her personal responses of showing gratitude and includes research into how gratitude can positively impact on emotional wellbeing.
The second book I am reading is called “Curiosity” by Rebecca Front and is a selection of short stories often told with humour about personal experiences and everyday life. It is interesting to note that she suffers from a number of anxieties and how she finds strategies to deal with these. Her observations of everyday life are, at times, laugh out loud funny.
From the book by Janice Kaplan I learned that Epicurus said
“Do not spoil what you have by desiring what you have not.”
and one I love “Don’t judge a book by its movie.”
This blog is intended for anybody who loves reading to share and exchange ideas so if that’s you I’d love to hear from you.
