I’ve been slowly working on my reading, and so it is time for the Summer Reads 2017 update, the first of its kind. I am still managing to get some done on the John Kabat-Zinn. Much of it is similar to what I learned in the eight week MBSR course through the Grand Rapids Center for Mindfulness but it’s a good reminder to stay in the moment. I did finish Lincoln in the Bardo, which was indeed a very unusual book.
I’m not sure it’s everyone’s cup of tea. It takes a bit to get used to how it’s written. The story is strange and it’s stayed with me after I finished reading it. I found the ending was not entirely satisfying. If you want to read it, let me know and I will mail it to you. If not, it will likely wind up at the library as a donation. I have started My Grandmother…which also seems to be a very unusual book. I believe I may need a palate cleanser of a breezy beach read when I am finished with it, so for sure I will be adding to my book list as I go. I always seem to do that.
What are you reading? Have you read any of the books on my list? Let me know your thoughts!
