we’re getting all caught up! hopefully i’ll stay caught up. but you know me. we’ll see. here’s what i read (and/or finished up) in june!
this day by wendell berry.
i have been reading my way through this book for about 18 months. i find that poetry is best read slowly, just a page or two at a time, so that’s what i did with this one. i loved it so much. if you are a fan of mary oliver, you’ll probably find some poems in this book that you’d like. lots of nature and wonder in this one.
everything is waiting for you by david whyte.
it was my turn to pick for book club, so i decided we needed some poetry up in that clurb. i chose this book because a friend turned me on to david whyte earlier in the year and i became a woman obsessed. i found out that he would be coming down to austin at the end of june, so i wanted to make sure i read this by then. i loved it. it was so good. and my book club loved it too! i was so happy to share my love of poetry with them and to hear them reading the poems and enjoying them and analyzing them and relating to them. i want to read my david whyte. he’s full of goodness.
the sexual healing journey by wendy maltz.
oh the name of this book. it’s something. this was my therapy read for june. it was really good, but i definitely don’t recommend it to everyone. it’s a pretty graphically detailed book, so i’d recommend it only for people who are very stable and ready to read about sexual trauma in depth. it’s a great resource for therapists.
poetry magazine june 2017.
a theme. nothing noteworthy.
well friends, we are all caught up on my reading. i’ve got my july books going and am excited to share them in a few weeks (hopefully). stay tuned.
