Please excuse the "prev, next" on either side of the page. But how great is this room? I love the quirky zebra painting mixed with the yellow and purple.
Before I leave you to your day, I want to share yet another passion of mine, reading. I have actually never posted about my favorite pastime, which is rather surprising considering how much I enjoy it. Here are a few must-read books that I suggest you try on for size:
Water for Elephants by Sara Gruen
I actually read this book a few years ago after wandering aimlessly in the public library. It is incredible, seriously. It is about a veterinarian student jumping on a train that turns out to be a circus train and his adventures from there. I also recently found out that they are turning this book into a major motion picture. So, I would suggest reading it before the previews ruin it!
A Piece of Cake by Cupcake Brown
For some reason I love reading about addiction and drugs, and gangs, and abuse. Funny, I bet you would have never guessed that about me... Well this book is a memoir that chronicles overcoming the death of a parent, childhood abuse, rape, drug addiction, miscarriage, alcoholism, hustling, gangbanging, near-death injuries, drug dealing, prostitution, and homelessness. Now don't let this discourage you, this book is amazing and Cupcake Brown is victorious.
The Hobbit by J.R.R. Tolkien
Do you have a book that you find yourself reading over, and over, and over again? This is how I feel about The Hobbit. But, here's the best part about my Hobbit obsession, I love to reread the first two chapters. I honestly can't count how many times I've read those first two chapters... I love the descriptions of the hobbit holes and their pantries and tea times. My copy is ragged from overuse, just the way I like it.
