A Little Light Reading on a Sunday

This week I caught a nasty cold, the last few days have been a blur of fever and dvd's. Really not much interest in doing anything more taxing than staring at my tv screen, I couldn't even get into the magazine I tried to read. But, today I am feeling much better, although I still need to take it easy. So I'm catching up on some reading, with these three books I recently purchased.

I'm no stranger to the self-help section of the bookstore (shhh, let's keep that just between us, ok?) And I mentioned in this post that I was looking forward to Inner Productivity to help me get a handle on my lack of motivation/commitment to my goals. I haven't cracked it open yet, but I'm two-thirds of the way through The War of Art - which turned out to be so much better than I expected, and which I will read a second time as soon as I'm finished. And will probably re-read for years to come. Until it's tattooed into my brain. I don't usually underline my books, it has to be a real knock-out book to get me to take a pen or highlighter to it, and it's crazy how much of this book I have underlined already. It's a great book for anyone interested in understanding and overcoming their inner resistance - not just for art or other creative pursuits, but for anyone trying to live (in the words of Oprah) their Best Life.


  1. Hope you're feeling better! And if Self Help books get your closer to being a happier, healthier person I am all for it!

  2. I might need to lend it to me when you're finished...although you know how many books are ahead of the "just one more book". I hope I get to read all the books I've purchased over the years...if are going to inherit a lot of books!!! :)


  3. I love that you've highlighted
    parts of this book that grabbed
    your attention. Those are the
    best kinds! I'll definitely need
    to check these titles out. I
    have found myself perusing the
    self help section of the bookstore
    more in the last year than I have
    in my entire life! (shh..I won't
    tell if you don't) Another to take
    a look at is "Everyday Matters"
    and "The Creative License" both
    by Danny Gregory. ;)
