DO you prefer a Real Book or a Kindle Read?
I was surprised to find out that there are more book shops opening in the UK than closing, (not sure what the trend may be back here in NZ) but as I still love buying books it is great to see others still feel the same way. I did get a kindle for my birthday (which I really wanted) so now get the best of both worlds when it comes to my reading style.
So here are a couple of book recommendations I’d like to share:
My Paris Dream by Kate Betts
I haven’t got too far into this book yet as just started reading it, but who wouldn’t be dreaming and writing about Paris; a fantastic and romantic city with great shopping of course. Kate Betts was an American girl with big dreams who decided to take a leap of faith and move to Paris. She was lucky enough to secure a job with Women’s Wear Daily where she was initiated into the fashion world. A memoir of Kate’s coming of age mixed with the enchanting world of fashion, shopping, travel and food. It is an easy, light read.
Invisible Acts of Power by Caroline Myss
I have read about 4 books by this author and definitely gives my spiritual and emotional well-being an overall. This book centres around the human body and mind and the role it plays in our spiritual grace of gifts and empowerment. Energy medicine and the study of it, has intrigued me for about the last 10 years or so, and it makes me want to know more about the emotional connection to body and mind. It was an inspiring and thought-provoking read. Loved it. High recommend.
Mademoiselle – Coco Chanel and the Pulse of History by Rhonda K Garelick
I always enjoy reading an autobiography on Coco Chanel (to add to my ever-increasing collection). The book contains 431 pages so not a light read and definitely very detailed, with meticulous research on the lady that was so much into fashion. For me I wish it was more a story told and light in narrative – than so factual. I probably needed to read it more concisely as have picked up and put it down for the last 4 months or so. I started with a hiss and roar but think just got a little bored. Better on kindle this one, as too heavy a book to take with me to the gym and back!!
