I’m back for the “Capture the Everyday” meme. I love taking ordinary things and making them (hopefully) extraordinary in photographs. But in addition to capturing the thing, it’s also cool to be capturing the details, which is what Melissa originally intended for the series.
Today’s post is all about books you’re reading. Meaning me. My books. What I’m reading. And once upon a time, I used to read a lot of books. Maybe six a year, which is a lot for me. And then a few things happened. We got broadband access and the internet became a whole lot more interesting. And then a few years later, I had a baby.
I could still read now if I made the choice. I just forget to make the choice. However, I have plenty of reading material on deck.
When I decided to start working/writing/blogging for myself, I picked up a few books. And then was given a few more. then I bought a few more. I know I’ve opened at least 2 of them. But I should tell you… I don’t care how good a business book is or how famous the author is, I just have a hard time cracking them open. Feels too much like school.
By the way, do you see any of them up there I should actually read?
And then there’s my personal reading stash. Both are nonfiction (it’s a phase I’m going through). I picked up Truth & Beauty at a Scholastic Book Warehouse Sale a few months ago. I am actually about a third of the way through it. Crazy for the Storm is another type of guilty pleasure for me. I bought it in Starbucks one day on a whim. I just love cold, wintery nonfiction stories. My favorites usually involve polar exploration or extreme mountain climbing. I don’t know why.
So what’s on your someday-I’m-gonna-read-this list? Now is the time to capture the everyday because your list will probably change – very soon!
