Rants, Rita, and Realities – A Grace Full Life
In July, I acknowledged having 35 books on my TBR (to be read) list. Then I wrote What Books Are On Your To Be Read List? and you lovely humans contributed 41 new ideas to that list. Some of you also suggested I create a Goodreads account.
I explained that my TBR list, my Goodreads account, and library browsing, had resulted in a chaotic mix of books, which meant that many of the books you recommended were being pushed to the bottom of my list. My system was messed up when I added new books to the top of the list.
Show of hands, how many of you have read Julia Cameron’s book The Artist’s Way?
In addition to the vision boards, I have a new project idea. We’re going to be very busy this winter.
I’d love to start a Morning Pages/The Artist’s Way group for anyone who’s interested. If you’ve never read her book, I assure you it’s not a cult or a multi-level marketing company.
It can change someone’s life at any age. Not just artists, and I believe those of us who have read it would agree. It will alter that way you think about things. We could talk about each chapter on the podcast once a week and work through it together.
I’m going to go into more detail about it in next week’s podcast, so stay tuned. 🙂
I mention that I’ve read 50 books in the last year and that I’ve never read so many books in a year in my entire life. I believe it has made me a better writer and a better person. That’s something I’m quite proud of.
Do you know how many books you read on average in a year?
I saw a TikTok video of someone approaching people in a bookstore and asking what their favorite book of all time is. I’m not sure what mine is, and I certainly wouldn’t be able to answer on the spot like that.
Do you know what your favorite book of all time is?
I mentioned Rachel Dawson’s reading journal, which I discovered on TikTok. Her TikTok account is AllTheReads, and her journal can be found on Amazon.
Do you keep a reading journal?
What are you reading right now?
