Quick Lit March 2015
I realized that I’m reading much less fiction than I used to. 5-6 years ago about 75% of my books were fiction – these days it’s rather the other way around. I think it might partly be because I don’t have as much time to just get lost in a book, as I used to – might have to work on bringing in a bit more fiction.
As always, I’m linking up with Modern Mrs Darcy.
The Happy Puppy Handbook: Your Definitive Guide to Puppy Care and Early Training by Pippa Mattinson: A great introduction to what it takes to raise a puppy from a modern, positive psychology point of view.
Chocolat by Joanne Harriss (currently $4.30 on Kindle): I’d watched the movie years ago, but the book was even better than expected. I love the break with expectations, and the focus on doing what’s right for you – setting people free to live the lives of their choosing.
The Autoimmune Paleo Breakthrough: A Revolutionary Protocol to Rapidly Decrease Inflammation and Balance Your Immune System by Anne Angelone: It’s a great little introduction to the autoimmune protocol, it provides a fine overview, but for more in-depth I’d recommend The Paleo Approach by Dr Sarah Ballantyne.
Are You Somebody?: The Accidental Memoir of a Dublin Woman by Nuala O’Faolain (currently $5.38 on Kindle): I came across this, and it turned out to be a wonderfully, fascinating, thought-provoking and brutally honest view into the life of a Dublin woman. O’Faolain grew up in virtual poverty, but ended up becoming one of the more famous columnists in Ireland – I heartily recommend it, for an unusual view into an unusual woman, as well as an insight into Irish history and mentality.
Delusions of Gender: How Our Minds, Society, and Neurosexism Create Difference by Cordelia Fine (currently $4.52 on Kindle): Wonderful and thought-provoking book on why the differences between men and women have much more to do with societal expectations, than any biological differences in our brains. Highly recommended.
