Summer Reading List!

The Creative Habit: Learn It And Use It For LifeThe Creative Habit: Learn It And Use It For Life by Twyla Tharp - I highly recommend this book.  This is my second time reading it and I love it. While she is a dancer, her words help all artists with routine, inspiration, ideas.  Probably one of my all time favorite books.

The Artistic Mother: A Practical Guide to Fitting Creativity into Your LifeThe Artistic Mother: A Practical Guide to Fitting Creativity into Your Life by Shona Cole.   A great book for people who want to try new ways to create such as photography, collage, and even poetry gets a mention!  I love that she wrote this book while being the mother of 5 (five!) kids.  Inspiring!

The Invisible Gorilla: And Other Ways Our Intuitions Deceive Us: Christopher Chabris & Daniel Simons (I'm enjoying this!)

Seeking Peace: Chronicles of the Worst Buddhist in the World by Mary Pipher  (Finished!  Loved this.)  It's interesting because it goes into how after Mary became a huge success and so well-known with Reviving Ophelia: Saving the Selves of Adolescent Girls, she basically had a nervous breakdown.

For anyone who has dealt with anxiety or can become easily overwhelmed, this is an incredible look at how for some of us, there is "too much" and we can feel or get overloaded.

Nudge: Improving Decisions About Health, Wealth, and Happiness by Richard H. Thaler & Cass R. Sunstein  (had a hard time getting into this and set it down, will try to pick it up later...)
