Confession: as much as I love imagination & creativity & stories, I prefer non-fiction ones to the fiction kind. If I’m going to pick up a book there’s a 95% chance it’s going to be non-fiction of some sort…and an 75% chance it’s going to be a memoir style book.
I am inspired & intrigued by others’ stories – how they see the world; the experiences that have shaped them. Maybe because when I find a piece of my story in someone else’s it makes me feel a little less crazy :)
Live What You Love: Notes from an unusual life (the new paperback edition says “passionate life” I prefer “unusual” :)) was one of those stories for me…the kind I found a piece of my own it. Or at least the story I wanted to have – an usual one. It is hands down one of my favorite books. I’ve read it 3 or 4 times & re-read parts of it from time to time just for fun.
A little taste for you…
I know…anyone who shares their story of an unusual life has my attention. :) If you’re looking for a fun vacation read or just want a little inspiration going into the new year, check it out.
