It’s Library Day!

My favorite bi-weekly activity is Library Day. Today I stopped by two libraries to browse the New Nonfiction section.  I will admit that I read most fiction books on my Kindle.  I check the eBooks out from the library on my Overdrive iPhone app. My TBR fiction list is long, long, long.  But for nonfiction I have a harder time finding what I want to read.  So browsing the new nonfiction shelves is always like a gold mine of interesting books.  I was pleased to pick up the The Primal Kitchen Cookbook by Mark Sisson.  There are some great looking recipes and I may just be buying this one because it’s just so darn beautiful.  If I designed a cookbook this is how I would do it.  I’ve almost completely cut added sugar from my diet with the exception of the occasional piece of dark chocolate so I’m looking forward to learning more through reading The Case Against Sugar by Gary Taubes.  I’m not one to ever get taken up by self-help books but I do believe they are worthwhile if you find one thing within their pages that will enlighten you and maybe make a difference in one small aspect of you life so I am interested to read The Joy Plan by Kaia Roman.  Who doesn’t need more joy in their life?  And finally with all the nation’s current racial tensions I want to read Tears We Cannot Stop: A Sermon to White America by Michael Eric Dyson. The praises on the back cover from Toni Morrison and Stephen King prompted me to add this to my stack.  Now I need to go get to reading!
