Books this week

pod

  • Joanna Rubin Dranger: Miss Remarkable and Her Career (Frøken Mærkværdig og Karrieren) (comic book – billedbog)
  • Katharine McMahon: The Alchemist’s daughter
  • Brené Brown: The gifts of imperfection : let go of who you think you’re supposed to be and embrace who you are
  • Mihaly Csikszentmihalyi: Creativity : flow and the psychology of discovery and invention
  • Garbor Maté: When the body says no : understanding the stress-disease connection

Do we sense a certain theme here? 😉

And next up was supposedly Chaucers The complete Canterbury Tales, but what happens when you order via online libraries is that you risk getting it in original old English…. Fun and understandable enough, but not quite what I feel I have the energy to study at this point in my life. So I’ll have to find something else until my next batch is delivered. Or I could try not to read if I finish “Creativity” and GASP do some painting instead! Haven’t knitted in a while yet either.

And then I look sideways at the mess on my desk (needed a box used for temporary storage, so all the contents got poured out), there’s a book someone lent me about synchronicity. “The Power of Flow”. So I guess I’m good for the rest of the holidays. 😉 I also have the C.G. Jung version somewhere in the back rows of my bookcase.

danishNår man bestiller via bibliotek.dk får man nogen gange ikke helt det man regnede med – som fx. Canterbury Fortællingerne på middelalderengelsk. Jeg kan godt forstå det, men det er en smule anstrengende og helt ærligt ikke lige noget jeg orker at studere pt. Enten må jeg gennemrode reolerne eller ligefrem holde læsepause, uha! Der ligger jo noget strikketøj og venter. Men så fandt jeg lige her til sidst en bog nogen har lånt mig: “Flow – den strømmende kraft. Synkronicitet og meningsfulde tilfældigheder.” Jeg har også Jungs version et sted.

    1. Light har man også brug for en gang imellem, men Alkymistens datter fik jeg læst på en aften, så der var ikke flere romaner på lager.

  1. Jeg er i gang med at genlæse diverse bøger fra reolen, da min krop åbenbart mener at natte søvn er en overdreven nødvendighed….
    I nat var det ” En god dag at dø ” , “little big man”

    1. Jeg render ind i så mange interessante bogtips rundt omkring på nettet, som jeg lige må checke ud. Og så er det jo så dejlig billigt og nemt at bare bestille dem online fra hele landets biblioteker. De har faktisk også ret mange af de moderne spinde- og strikkebøger!

    1. I think I’ll begin with some decluttering around the place. Always feels a lot better for getting the juices flowing.

        1. Happy Easter or whatever you do to you as well. I got as far as walking the dog and sweeping the floors, thinking that my desk would be an excellent project for the times someone else is watching tv. I also tested all my markers and various crayons on my watercolour paper but didn’t feel inspired to continue at all, so now I’m back here having tea and (too much) shortbread. But at least I’m not ultra exhausted today, so there’s hope of keeping me off the couch & books.
