Update on this Year’s Reading Challenge

Reading Challenge Update

Well, I spent the day at the Newtown Library Book Sale, and in the photos you can see some of what I bought. It made me think this would be a good time to update you (it is already midyear!) on how I’m doing on my Reading Challenge for 2016. I am behind and better get busy, even though I’m midway through lots of things right now. If I end up reading more than 52 books this year, some of these titles might get swapped out for better ones. Here is what I have finished so far:

I work to amplify good wherever I find it. I love color, texture, beauty, great ideas, nature, metaphor, deliciousness, genuine spirituality, and exploring new territory. I encourage authenticity, nurture creativity, champion sustainability, promote peace, and hope to foster a new renaissance where we all are free to be our most fulfilled, multifaceted, and terrific selves.
