Words for the Road

I read most all of the time. I have a Kindle and I love it but there's just something about holding pages and savoring the words that inspires me to haul the real things along. I tried to leave this new Kinfolk edition at home but I just couldn't. In my minimalist packing challenge I limited myself to two reading items. This made the cut. The other is an art journal.

I'm imagining leisurely mornings, sipping hot black coffee and reading these pages (I'm also in love with the pictures). My reality will probably be far different but this publication makes me hope otherwise.

If what we read reflects who we are and what we are about, I've found myself here and I like what I see.

Do you have a favorite publication? Or a book? I'm always on the lookout for great things to feast my eyes and mind on. Please share ideas in the comment section!

  1. Based on high remarks given by several friends, I'm about to read The Paris Wife by Paula McLain. It's written from the point of view of Hadley Richardson, Ernest Hemingway’s first wife, and their life together in Paris in the 1920's. From what I hear it is beautifully written and a real page turner. I watched a movie recently about Hemingway and I've been interested in learning more about his life and his writing so maybe this will be a good gateway book.

    I'm also excited to go home today and find my new Kinfolk edition in the mailbox! The pictures in this publication are so beautiful and inspiring! It makes me want to get a camera and start up with photography, like I need more crafts and hobbies!
