I'm the activity gal in my 'hood. Most of the books I've written are about fitness and heath, so when I read, I want to escape all that... pretty much. My favorite reading position is horizontal, propped up on soft pillows or--mo' betah--swinging in a hammock.
So, what's your favorite reading position?

The Reenchantment of the World by Morris Berman
" Well, it looks like this is something I need to read, considering all the effort I make in getting people out into nature! "
The Reenchantment of the World by Morris Berman
"I first read this one in the eighties, and have to go back to it every few years. A completely eye-opening, mind-bending book that explores the origins of the modern mind and the shortcomings of a purely analytical view of the world as opposed to..." Read more of this review »

“It may be that when we no longer know which way to go that we have come to our real journey. The mind that is not baffled is not employed. The impeded stream is the one that sings.”
Wendell Berry
The Selected Poems of Wendell Berry by Wendell Berry
“The Peace of Wild Things

When despair for the world grows in me
and I wake in the night at the least sound
in fear of what my life and my children’s lives may be,
I go and lie down where the wood drake
rests in his beauty on the water, and the great heron feeds.
I come into the peace of wild things
who do not tax their lives with forethought
of grief. I come into the presence of still water.
And I feel above me the day-blind stars
waiting with their light. For a time
I rest in the grace of the world, and am free.”

I'm not at all sure what I think! I have never read a book by Philip Roth before. This was given to me by a friend and, like him, I read the whole thing in one sitting. So, that says something. It was hard to put down and held some surprises, but in ...more
