STEAL-cover-300x300#1) steal like an artist by austin kleon – this small, easy to flip through book encourages people to be open to what creativity means to them, and unblocks those of us who may feel somewhat “stuck.” it’s about finding happiness by fusing interests, various influences, and just being open and aware to new ways of thinking! http://www.amazon.com/Steal-Like-Artist-Things-Creative/dp/0761169253

slouching-towards-bethlehem-9780374531386#2) slouching towards bethlehem by joan didion – this is a classic didion text that i’ve wanted to read forever but haven’t around to doing so. the paperback is perched on my bedside table. it’s a collection of nonfiction essays from the 1960s, about California, counterculture, and various other topics. i try to read a bit every night after tearing myself away from apple devices, and right before i drift off to sleep. http://www.amazon.com/Slouching-Towards-Bethlehem-Essays-Classics/dp/0374531382/

mipe01#3) mindfulness in plain english – self-explanatory 🙂 a great beginner’s guide to anyone who wants to truly learn how to take some time to tune out during the day. http://www.amazon.com/Mindfulness-Plain-English-Anniversary-Edition/dp/0861719069
