As promised earlier this month, I am going to start sharing some reading ideas for all of you. I am lucky enough to be surrounded by many avid readers who recommend a lot of great reads. Today I'll begin spreading that wealth with all of you.
There are some books that pull me in unexpected directions. I can start a book about war, and find myself craving the foods discussed two chapters in. I'm a lost cause if any book mentions feasts of fresh cheese or bread freshly torn from a loaf. Even if this is the meal of choice for characters on the run, I can't help myself. Plot aside, that book will resonate with me for its ability to make me run to the store to eat what the characters are eating. Everything else becomes subplot.
For the next few weeks, I am going to share reading lists that resonate with me---either for obvious or unexpected reasons. To start with, I decided to pull together my top five reads for inspiring a more natural life. For some titles, the theme is intentional. For others, it's simply something I picked up on because I'm an odd duck.
