Flipping pages… the January list

 My January reads were all excellent and varied.

A favorite author

An Author I admire
Informative and empathetic 

Poetic nonfiction full of surprises
Barnes and Noble 2020 book of the year

A lovely book of poems that I read daily

A very different book that made me think 

Because I am still trying to pick my favorites of 2021, I am starting to categorize monthly. I may even ask Fiona to help me set up a spreadsheet. 

January Favorite.   How to Love the World   This a beautiful compilation. I keep it in the kitchen and start my day by reading a poem a day. A treasure!

And a little time for artistic quotes in watercolor and pen and ink.

  1. I haven't finalized a favorites list from last year either. Both These Precious Days and Bewilderment were favorites of mine last month.

  2. How are the Ann Patchett essays? I like many of her books. Nice collection Nan. Starting the day with a poem sounds like a good idea. Happy weekend!

  3. I haven't heard of any of these. I feel I am missing out because I simply don't read enough books, but white papers and scientific journals instead. It was good to see these titles, so if I decide to read something, I will know where to come to look for good books.

Thanks so much for the beautiful Valentine's card too and the stunning calligraphy artwork inside, they arrived yesterday and was such a lovely surprise; thanks so thinking of me, you're a star too!
