Adventures of the Mind

All of my life I have been a book lover and avid reader. For me, reading spurs creativity in so many areas of my life–including my artwork. The worlds you can visit and discover in a book are never ending and can take you away from the stress of daily life. For those of you who love to read, here are a few of my favorites that I read in 2012: The Night Circus by Erin Morgenstern; Twelve Times Blessed Jacquelyn Mitchard; An Invisible Thread by Laura Schroff; Body & Soul by Frank Conroy; The Postmistress by Sarah Blake; The Help by Kathryn Stockett. And waiting on my nightstand…Gone Girl! Can’t wait to start it. Let me know your favorites and what you have waiting in the wings!

Each year I treat myself to a unique vintage book and this year I received "The Black Princess and other Fairy Tales from Brazil. It is exquisite and the illustrations are by Florence Mary Anderson. It was a good price and the author Christie T Young signed and dated it 1918 :) very exciting! I must read some of the books you mention, I have only read The Help.
Happy New Year to you!!!
