Rainy days always make me want to browse a cozy bookstore with a mug of tea in hand. There is something so delicious about exploring stacks of books with the sound of raindrops pitter-pattering on the rooftop, don't you think?
Not that I need any more books, mind you. I'm currently working my way through:
- The Four Agreements. I am re-reading the amazingly wise words of Miguel Ruiz, and finding them even more profound than I remembered.
- Best Food Writing 2009. I get so excited for the publication of this anthology each year...it's always jam-packed with tons of interesting, funny, and informative essays and columns by some of the best writers food out there.
- A Homemade Life: Stories and Recipes from My Kitchen Table. A wonderful compendium of autobiographical stories by Molly Wizenberg, the witty and original voice behind one of my favorite food blogs, Orangette.
- Altared: Bridezillas, Bewilderment, Big Love, Breakups, and What Women Really Think About Contemporary Weddings. As part of my commitment to remain mindful [read: sane] throughout the process of planning my wedding, I am finding it enormously helpful to read about the experiences of other women, some funny, some poignant, and some very much lessons in what not to do.
(And yes, I'm reading all four of them simultaneously.)
What are you reading on this rainy day?
