31 Days of Gratitude – Day 17

Today I did one of my favourite things in this world…I bought books! 😜😁 I have way too many already and I may never get to read them all but it just gives me such great pleasure to acquire more. I didn’t meet my target this year of reading 50 books but that’s ok. I enjoyed the 21 books that I did get to read this year.

Some of my favourites have been:

  • Glucose Revolution: The life changing power of balancing your blood sugar by Jessie Inchauspé. She simplifies the science so well. I just need to be more disciplined about incorporating her hacks into my day.
  • The Power of Positive Thinking by Norman Vincent Pearl. An oldie but still relevant. I like the uplifting yet down to earth style that it is written in. The advice was much needed as well.
  • The Cabin at the End of the Train: A story about pursuing dreams by Michael V. Ivanov. A simple yet inspiring story
  • Velvet Dragonflies by Billy Chapata – this is a book of poetry takes on a journey back to self. I am halfway through but will be done by tomorrow. I love how he strings words together that can touch the very core of you.

    1. Oh yes! I do enjoy the smell, feel and look of books as well. That is so great that you have that collection. I am sure you treasure them. Are they the traditional classics or are they non-fiction?
