A Few Great Books!

Since the end of June I have read 5 awesome books! (as part of my read 12 books for 2011 resolution)

Pink Book and a Machete by Mireya Mayor......

This woman is so awesome and amazing.  She was on the National Geographic show as one of the explorers in Expedition Africa, the televsion series.  I did not watch the TV series but this book is a fabulous adventure and the story of an amazing woman.  She is beautiful, brillant, adventurous, and fierce. 

The Happiness Project by Gretchen Rubin......

Another inspiring book; but inspring in a different way.  Gretchen is down to earth, honest, and funny.  This book is about her quest for happiness through a chart which she developed.  For one whole year Gretchen focuses on discovering true happiness, focusing on a specific area each month.  I loved her ideas and what she focused on each month.  I discovered some new ideas to try myself.

Grayson by Lynne Cox....

A short but fabulous read.  This story tracks a young swimmer and the relationship with lost baby whale.  I have a strong love for animals, specifically whales and dolphins, and I'm fascinated at their ability to communicate.  A great story of friendship between human and animal. 

A Walk in the Woods by Bill Bryson......

Hilarious! Bill writes about his adventure hiking the Appalachian Trial.  His writing is comical and it was a great page turner

bird by bird by Anne Lamott

Another funny book..... Anne gives advice for writers in a most comical, honest fashion.
