It’s been a lazy spring break for us here. While many friends are out of town, some away on tropical vacations (I wish!) I’ve been sitting at home doing a lot of nothing. :) It feels good, especially since I’ll be traveling abroad next month. I’m off to Scandinavia for 12 days with a friend, and I can’t wait to explore those countries.
I used to read 1-2 books a month for leisure, but I noticed in the past year that had fallen off significantly as I absorbed most information online. Too much.
For the past three mornings I’ve been waking up early and reading a book that I’ve been meaning to read for years. Three people mentioned this book to me in the past month so I took it as a sign and put it at the top of my list. I wasn’t disappointed. I loved reading this book this week with my morning coffee while everyone else slept upstairs.
Have you read The Alchemist by Paulo Coelho? So many friends of mine had read it so I wanted to join the club. There are several famous quotes from the book, but this is a popular one, and a new favorite:
I love that. So simple and so true, and I needed to be reminded of it. What about you? Do you have an all time favorite quote from a book? I’d love to read yours :)
