Happy Links: Book Love

relax and read a book

I injured my back five weeks ago and I’m finally starting to feel like a human again. I can walk, sit, and ride my bike short distances without piercing pain. I’m incredibly grateful that I’m on the mend. Staying off my laptop, taking lots of photos for The August Break, doing gentle physical therapy, and reading have been central parts of my self-care plan.

Today, I decided to share the list of books I read during my convalescence. If you are looking for a good read, check out the books below.

What are you reading this summer? Share your recommendations in the comments section.

Be well,

    Also read Mennonite in a Little Black Dress this summer. Related to a lot she had to say! Also plowed through a couple Ivan Doig and Alexander McCall Smith novels, finally got around to Bossypants, and re-read Holy Cow about the insane religious melting pot of India in preparation for an upcoming trip.

    I haven’t read any of those – thanks for the recommendations!

    I have a couple of those on my tbr shelf! I am currently reading the Jack Reacher series and am enjoying it but haven’t seen the movie. Also reading Reflection Point by Emily March. I love the whole Eternity Springs series.

    I understand the “starting to feel human again”, I recently suffered a massive pulmonary embolism and while I’m doing better than expected it is still frustrating not being 100%.

    Take things easy 🙂

    I just finished reading YOUR book, actually! It re-energized me toward my goal of becoming debt-free. Also, since I won’t be going on a vacation this summer, I’ve been enjoying some armchair travel by reading Alice Steinbach’s books.
