I’m at the end of an e-course with the fabulous Kimberly Wilson about bringing tranquility into one’s life.  (As the mom of children ages 7, 5, and almost 2, I can barely write that sentence with a straight face.)  There are many reason to adore Kimberly, including the fact that she’s an Okie, like me, but the reason I’m digging her today is for her voracious reading, and the way she’s always ready to recommend a great book.

One of my resolutions was to read at least two books a month, ideally one fiction and one nonfiction.  Thanks to Kimberly, and two weeks of sick running through our household (smartphone shopping apps provided a nice escape from three feverish little bodies), I’ve got a good chunk of this year’s nonfiction stacked near my bed.

It’s a nonfiction orgy, and I can’t wait to dig in.  Here’s what I’m reading:

Make Your Creative Dreams Real, by SARK

Manage your Day-to-Day: Build Your Routine, Find Your Focus & Sharpen Your Creative Mind, by Jocelyn Glei

A Field Guide to Now: Notes on Mindfulness and Life in the Present Tense, by Christina Rosalie

The Mindful Writer, by Dinty W. Moore
