Archive for the ‘reading (books+magazines)’ Category

I’m looking to grow my library of self-improvement books. Can anybody recommend books in the following categories?

  • Photography: Books on composition and lighting, Photoshop for beginners and the basics of digital SLRs
  • Business: Books on goal setting and self-motivation and staying organized
  • Crafting: Books with patterns for a beginner knitter and somebody who want to learn to crochet

Thanks for your help!

I’m sad to report that Domino, one of my favorite shelter magazines, has folded.

From New York magazine:

“This decision to cease publication of the magazine and its website is driven entirely by the economy,” Condé Nast CEO Chuck Townsend says in a press release that went out just now. “Although readership and advertising response was encouraging in the early years, we have concluded that this economic market will not support our business expectations.”

What does that mean for those of us with subscriptions? Do we get our money back?

body+soul

I recently canceled my subscription to Allure magazine (too much fluff, not enough substance) and am now considering subscribing to Martha Stewart’s body+soul instead. Right now you can get 10 issues for $10 at Whole Living.

Does anybody subscribe to body+soul? Is it worth reading month to month?

If 2008 was the year of my obsession with James McAvoy, 2009 is the year of Robert Pattinson — or should I say Edward Cullen. After reading the Twilight series and seeing the movie, I have a full-on vampire crush. That wild hair. Those serious eyes. That intensity. Sigh.

The chemistry between Edward and his human soul-mate, Bella, has actually induced a bit a jealous in this grown girl. Their passion hurts my heart a little because it makes me think of — and miss — J.

Isn’t this all so silly? It’s just (poorly written) teen fiction, for goodness sake!

I had lunch with a friend yesterday who brought with her Twilight by Stephenie Meyer for me to borrow.  I’m very interested to see what the hype is all about.  If I can finish it by the weekend (and I can’t imagine that I won’t–after all, it is a book for teenagers), she and I will go see the movie together with all the tweens and pre-teens in Omaha.

Have you read the Twilight series? What did you think? Will you be seeing the movie?
