Whew! It looks like I read more this month than I actually did. For one, I forgot to include a book from January and so it's on February's list. And two, three of these are graphic novels which are usually fast reads. Here's what I read lately:
Once Upon a Piece of Paper -- This was the year of creative habits book club book for January. It's a really cool book, half instruction manual and half collage paper pad.
Becoming Andy Warhol -- I was excited about this book and wanted to like it. You probably know I'm a big fan of Andy Warhol. And I love the idea of this book but was disappointed. It has lots of scenes that capture Andy's personality but the scenes don't fit together to tell much of a story. :(
March: book 1 -- This one on the other hand was fantastic! A graphic novel/memoir written by Congressman John Lewis. It's won all kinds of awards and deservingly so. I can't wait to read book 2!
Swimming in the Sink -- Loved this book. Best memoir I've read in a while.
Creative Strength Training -- This was the year of creative habits book club selection for February. I liked the lessons and messages in it but it was more geared toward fiber artists and didn't really feel like "me."
The Life and Art of Lois Mailou Jones -- This was an excellent resource!
Carry This Book -- Graphic novel that imagines what famous people might carry in their bag/purse--fun and funny.
The Four Agreements: A Toltec Wisdom Book -- I'd heard of this book and have a friend who credits it as changing his life. It was interesting. When I got to the fourth agreement I noticed some words that reminded me of my year of creative habits project and so I began to rethink the agreements in terms of creativity and habits and the online world. And it's completely relevant in those ways.
So far in 2017, I've read 13 books. I'm feeling good about reaching my goal of 50 this year.
