Books I am reading

I love to read and usually go through around 60 fiction novels but also LOVE my spiritual and self development books.  I have a long way to go and don't think I will ever stop reading them.

This is just a book on positive change to try and keep me positive.  I keep forgetting the days saying though so I have been reading the one saying for a week.....I've forgotten it again could be a long while getting through this one.  :)

This a book to help with mindfulness practise.  I have been studying mindfulness and various techniques for around 4 years now.  I'm definitely in the zone when I do my 5 minutes twice a day mindfulness exercises.

This one is about simple living and getting back to basics to ease to financial burden and stresses of life.  I had it on order for ages from Book Depository and was unable to get it, and by chance was in the school staff room after a working bee and a lovely teacher ordered it for me through their book people that come around each month.  I LOVE it, such good advice and I am finally putting changes in place.

I don't get a lot of time to read but if am blessed in being a pretty fast reader and will read anywhere I take a book absolutely everywhere when I go out.  It is back to school for all 3 boys tomorrow so maybe I shall celebrate by taking 15 minutes out for a read!!


  1. I'm going to try to read more this year sue...I love learnng and you obviously do too...another thing we have in common. Have a wonderful day with Monty...I'm about to embark on a new journey with 25 new little people. I will make sure we water little tree.

  2. Oh Monty is missing boys today terribly! I do love learning :)

  3. Wow, is that 60 books a year! I thought 20+ was good. I don't tend to go for self help but I did like Buddhism for Mothers to help regain some perspective and find some strategies to avoid yelling too much. And I've been meaning to have a look at the Down to Earth book for ages too. I also like an iPhone app I have called Happier which is about focusing on positives things that happen every day.

    1. The Buddhism for Mothers has another 2 offshoot books now, not sure what they are called but I do recall seeing them in the bookstore, that was one book I heard a lot of good things about but did not read. Down to Earth is EXCELLENT if you are after new idea to downsize your life and reduce your footprint.


How Bipolar Hypomania effects me.

Recently a friend asks me what mania was like for me? So I though I would attempt to answer via this post.   Just to clarify, I ...
