Rainy Day Reading in Bed


Due to some unexpected cancellations, more than anticipated rain and a slight overuse injury, it appears I have created one of the suggested Self Care activities for myself … a ‘stolen’ rainy day reading in bed! I am so very thankful for this.

I usually have 3-4 books going at one time, one fiction and the rest non fiction and memoirs.

Today, I’ll start with something uplifting and kind of spiritual and plan to finish ‘the mindful path to self compassion’ by Christopher K. Germer and then move on to ‘breathing under water’ by Richard Rohr.

Next, I hope to read a few chapters from ‘Hillbilly Elegy: A Memoir of a Family and Culture in Crisis’ by J.D. Vance before diving into ‘The Underground Railroad’ by Colton Whitehead. Once I finish ‘The Underground Railroad and if I still have some time left, my next novel is ‘Do Not Say We Have Nothing’ by Madeleine Thien. Ms. Thien’s novel won Canada’s Scotiabank Giller Prize in 2016.

Now, if only there was someone to bring me delectable beverages and munchies all day, this day of rainy day reading would be perfect.
