Just like the rest of my body, when I don’t stretch my brain, it starts to feel achy and is harder for me to do things quickly. You know those “duh” moments when you can’t think of the very thing you were about to say? Yea, a sign that this mind of mine needs a good stretch. A while back, I talked about having a healthy mind and exercising it. Reading is “food for your brain“, and improves brain connectivity. And really, who doesn’t like relaxing in bed (or the bath) with a good book? One of my favorite things to do, and now that both boys are sleeping through the night … bring on the books!
These are my current bedside picks:
1. Now I See You: A Memoir by Nicole C. Kear. I have walked by this book a few times now and finally will be getting into it. Hoping my book club is on board to read this one next! A nineteen year old woman is informed that she will be gradually losing her sight. Instead of making preparations, she takes the time she has and makes the most of it (circus school, travelling…) meanwhile keeping her vision loss a secret.
3. Sunday Dinners by Karen Mordechai. Not only are the pages aesthetically laid out, the recipes seem tangible and delicious (I have yet to try them!). I’m savouring every page as I read through.
4. A River Runs Through It by Norman McLean. Again revisiting this classic. It’s been years actually, and all I remember are clips from the movie based on the book. Looking forward to dive into this all-time favorite of Matt’s.
