A wee bit of Summer reading

I'm a reader. 

I'm a non-fiction only reader.

I'm a non-fiction, learn as much as I can, reader.

This is what I'm reading right now.

I like to tag pages to reference later with mini post it notes. 

There is so much to learn about in this book.  Sometimes I can only read a few paragraphs and my brain is full.  Well, it's a good thing I have all Summer to work on it. 

What are you reading right now?


  1. I can tell you are a non fiction reader! Me, too. Are you reading that book from front to back or jumping around looking at particular sections? What I like about your blog is that I always learn something I didn't know when I visit. I just finished IN DEFENSE OF FOOD and FOOD RULES by Michael Pollan, and THE DASH DIET FOR HYPERTENSION. I'm starting Nina Planck's REAL FOOD and Barbara Kingslover's ANIMAL, PLANT, MIRACLE. I'm right in the middle of a great read, I'M STILL YOUR MOTHER, by Dr. Jane Adams. It is about letting go of grown children after I raised them to be independent. I love gardening encyclopedias, cookbooks, and biographies! I read some history as background when I'm interested in a time period. Well, this is a long post, but something I am passionate about. Have a great week! Lottie

  2. I'm a non-fiction kind of girl, too... right now I'm reading "Organic Prayer: A Spiritual Gardening Companion" by Nancy Roth AND "Sewing Bits and Pieces: 35 Projects Using Fabric Scraps" by Sandi Henderson. I'm liking the looks of the book you're reading, though...

  3. Oh yes...me too! I'm glad to know someone else thinks like me...I was beginning to think I was odd! My daughter and I are both addicted to those little sticky tabs.

  4. Those mini post-it notes are brilliant!! Thank you for that tip. I'm finishing up "The Read-Aloud Handbook" by Jim Trelease and looking forward to starting "Books That Build Character: A Guide to Teaching Your Child Moral Values Through Stories" by William Kilpatrick. I'm in the process of becoming more of a non-fiction reader and I'm enjoying more than I thought I would. Having a little boy to teach is great motivation.


I'd love to know what you're thinking. Please feel free to leave ideas and comments.
