Friday reads!!! As usual, a big stack here in the home/studio.
For the Japan book club, I loved Ruth Ozeki’s A Tale for the Time Being. Next up, Pico Iyer’s The Lady and the Monk. Couldn’t resist his Art of Stillness, because I’ll be home for most of the summer.
Getting my travel jollies with Best American Travel Writing, loved the essay on Tokyo and AirBnB.
For my book group, The Sympathizer by Viet Thanh Nguyen, good but giving me nightmares as I read novels before bed only.
Happy City by Charles Montgomery to feed my fascination with cities and how they (can) function well. Speaking of cities, I’m loving the fun Impressions of Paris by Cat Seto.
I took a workshop with Vanessa Edwards at WDS a few years ago on body language and psychology and it was AMAZING! Beyond amazing. Psyched to read her book, Captivate.
Last but not least, I really enjoyed Andy Miller’s Creative Pep Talk, an inspiring visual romp through some of the wisdom of his podcast guests.
Happy Friday! Read well, read often, friends.
