Let me start this post off by saying …I read a lot.
And not just ‘cus it gives me that sexy Librarian, nerdy look, either. I read mostly because I’m an introvert and its how I recharge. And its also because my mom was a librarian and I was pretty much born and raised in the library. Also, I currently work in the library part-time, so I guess you can say me and my relationship with books are pretty serious.
Ok, anyway. Because I read so much, mostly books about personal development and of course, personal finance, people ask me what I’ve been reading, lately.
So, this month, I thought I’d share with you!
I am currently reading: Chasing Slow, written by Erin Loechner.
This book was interesting. It is a biography mixed in with anecdotal lessons thrown in. If you noticed the trend of books I seem to be reading, lately they’ve seemed to be about slowing down and being present with a touch of minimalism. This one is no different.
To be honest, I have never heard of Erin Loechner before reading this book, and that wasn’t a problem, for me. She tells you a portion of he life story, starting from when she met her now husband. She continues with her life, her now-husband, with a little girl in tow.
This book is NOT a guide on how to live your life slowly. Its more like an open letter from a dear friend, on how her life has gotten to this point, and what she has learned in the process. Its very thoughtful and beautifully written and she has a way with words that make the simplest things, poetic. I definitely enjoyed reading this book.
