Today's ventage tuesday topic is a favorite of Barb's - reading! The girls tease me (a lot) about my penchant for self-development books, but I also read a lot of memoir. I've been pondering my aversion to fiction a bit - I think it's all mixed up in having to feeling like I'm always doing something useful. Fiction is so frivilous! Anyway, on to my 5 books... Note: the assignment specifically said "things," which I interpreted to mean books...but I'll be curious to read the other girls' answers.
2. Seven Thousand Ways to Listen: Staying Close to What is Sacred by Mark Nepo - This one would go on my Eat, Pray, Love shelf.
3. Wild: From Lost to Found on the Pacific Crest Trail by Cheryl Strayed - Still haven't read...and am hoping that Miss Hope might have left her copy here over break. Hmmm....
4. The Feast Nearby by Robin Mather - I think that memoir is closing in on self-improvement as my favorite genre.
5. Everything but the Coffee: Learning About America Through Starbucks by Bryant Simon - marketing, starbucks, reading, memoir, research...these are a few of my favorite things.
