It’s time for another Frugal Friday and this time…let’s talk about other things to do other than:
A. Buy make up
B. Think about buying make up, and
C. Writing up lists of make up to buy.
Reading! I love reading although I don’t have much time for it anymore. I have a massive book collection – gathered from my childhood, University days and current interests. I don’t see books as a luxury purchase at all!
I can’t seem to concentrate long enough to read fiction so I generally read non fiction. I always have a new hobby, or a new topic I am learning about (ie. soapmaking or a new computer program) so my book collection is like a little reference library!
I am currently reading….
1. How to make a million before lunch - I read Rachel Bridge’s lunchtime masterclass with The Stylist magazine and I liked her approach so bought her book. I am reading this slowly to digest the information and apply it to some ideas I am currently working on. I really love books about business start ups and entrepreneurs.
2. The 17 Day Diet by Dr Mike Moreno – another week, another diet. This one so far seems like a great book. The diet itself seems very sensible, lots of protein and veg and cutting out the obvious, sugars and carbs for 17 days then a second phase which allows for some grains and good carbs. Need to start this – I have a ton of food my mum gave me I need to finish first and they’re all quite carby!
3. Revolutionary Road by Richard Yates. I like subtle fiction and also books explore relationships and that convey a sense of suffocation…I just think it’s a real art! I have only read a few pages of this – I only get a chance when I am tucked in bed and I manage a few pages before I pass out.
Tell me – what books are you reading?
P.S. What do you make of the Kindle? Great invention, I can see why commuters love it although for me, nothing beats the real pages of a book, and I don’t mind the bulk. But I guess it makes sense that books will become digitised…I mean I look at my video and CD collection now, and think – what a waste of space!
Have a fab weekend. Got a new blog shop layout coming next week and a new blog announcement! xxx
