I find myself trapped in a chair now holding still for much of the day while my baby nurses. So, although I'm not getting to make as much art, I'm doing way more reading. And I loooove books! Here are a few of the good books I've been reading lately....

Awesome inspiration and great ideas by author and artist Austin Kleon. Buy (or steal) this book!

I don't think I've ever read the original Peter Pan by J. M. Barrie before- all that sticks in my head is the Disney movie. The book is very quirky and well worth a read! 

Listen to this quote- "Do you know," Peter asked "why swallows build in the eaves of houses? It is to listen to the stories."

Fairy tales! I have a big collection of different fairy tale books, but I don't pull them off the shelf to read  that often. I've found they are perfect for reading 10 minutes at a time, the way it often works out while nursing.

This is a great novel that I'm really enjoying, Life Among Giants by Bill Roorbach. What fun! It's about being a teenage boy, football, dance, cooking, fame, mental illness, tennis, secrets, and scandal. And, well, lots of other things. :)

Any good books you are reading that you'd like to recommend?
