Summer Reads 2014
This post is sponsored by Scribd.
Well, it seems I’m still devouring nonfiction as you can see from this summer’s reading list. (Although, hey, 1 of the 8 is fiction. Uh, metaphysical fiction, but FICTION. Large strides I’m taking, people.) As you probably have gathered, I’ve been reading A LOT this past year, and am pretty pumped about the subscription service from Scribd. Instead of buying every book under the sun for your e-reader like yours truly, you can pay a simple monthly fee to read as many as you want. Awwww yeahhhh. Here are my eight reads for the summer.
1. The Book of Questions by Gregory Stock, PhD – I am hoping this will keep my family occupied during the road trips we have planned for this summer.
2. Medium Raw by Anthony Bourdain – I love Anthony Bourdain. Adore him. I know I’ve linked to it several times, but did you ever read his article on Nick Jr shows? It was the best thing ever, but unfortunately, I can’t find it online anymore. :(
3. What Remains by Carole Radziwill – I’ll admit it, I only know her from RHONYC, but it has the potential to be a great summer read.
4. The Alchemist by Paulo Coelho – This book has been on my list for ages – I’m going to make it happen very soon.
5. Wild Fermentation by Sally Fallon – I’m thoroughly into fermenting foods these days. Heal the gut, heal the mind! This is supposed to be a great, no-frills book on the subject.
6. Are you there, Vodka? It’s me, Chelsea – Chelsea Handler is a mess. A hilarious mess, and I love her for it. Perfect pool read.
7. Year of Living Biblically by A.J. Jacobs – I’ve heard nothing by good things. It’s supposed to be downright hilarious.
8. Encyclopedia of Essential Oils by Julia Lawless- I’ve doing a lot of experimentation with essential oils over the past few months, and I have to say, I’m really impressed. (Especially in regards to my kids’ ailments. Whoah!) I’m geeking out about reading this book cover to cover.
