Book Report

Hey folks, Dana here.

Final weekend of summer with my son away, and I’ve had more reading time than usual, but it is coming to a close.

I don’t know about you, but I try to read a book per week.

You know, things that CEOs do.

Now, I don’t always find that I can, but often I do.

I’ve been very happy with my reading so far this year, especially this summer.

I read one book that I knew I would love before I read it (Dirty Genes, by Dr. Ben Lynch) another that I thought I would not like, but did, (Vitamania, by Catherine Price – great read!) and two books that I didn’t expect to be reading manifested themselves in my life as gifts and impressed me (Botanical Medicine and the AutoImmune Fix by Dr. Tom O’Bryan)

I read a couple of very weird books (The Secret Teachings of Plants was less about botany, and more about things like Zeno’s concept of Time being an illusion), and lots from the library;

The Hormone Boost by Dr. Natasha Turner, The Hormone Fix by Dr. Anna Cabeca, The Wisdom of Menopause by Christiane Northrup, M.D.. are some of the ones I renewed, so that I could read them over again, they were so packed with revelatory insight.

I also read a book I didn’t like as much as I thought I would (Girl, Wash your Face). I wasn’t sure, because it was good on some levels, so I read her next book a bit, and I like that one even less, so yup, I’m done with her.

I stopped reading the latest book halfway.

DO YOU let yourself do that? Or do you FORCE yourself to finish it?

I never force anymore. I didn’t like that she was suggesting that a boob job is selfcare for women, so I BAILED on the book, and I DO NOT CARE.

🙂

I also bought myself a book for my birthday; Healing with Whole Foods by Paul Pitchford. Yep, it’s a classic, and now, no matter what problem comes up, I’ve got a congee recipe for that!

I also read several fiction books, like Catch-22, The Shadow Roads, and a few old sci-fi and crime books left to me by my dad, and I was happy that those were good ones.

All in all, a great few weeks in the reading department.

Check out the authors!

Shout out to @Catherine_Price and @DrBenLynch on Twitter or follow the #Buhner hashtag if you’re into super weird non linear thinking…again, it wasn’t for me, but is has it’s appeal.

WHAT HAVE YOU BEEN READING?

I’d love to hear from you.
