This & That

Alright first order of business, a big congrats to one of my readers, Rosemary, who won the extra copy of The Case of the Missing Servant by Tarquin Hall (winner selected via Thank you guys for entering the giveaway! I’ll try to offer up more goodies later this season.

What’s the latest at Casa Bookgirl? We’ve got a bit of celebrating to do this weekend as my husband’s birthday was today. Not sure where all we’ll go but I have a feeling a visit to the bookstore is in order as he’s just as much of a bookworm as I am.

Actually I would really love to find a book by Mario Vargas Llosa. Do you have a favorite of his you can recommend?

I haven’t forgotten that in my last post I mentioned wanting to start a new book. I did and I think I’m in for a book that will really make me put on my thinking cap. I started Eating Animals by Jonathan Safran Foer and although I’m not very far into the book there is one paragraph that basically stated his book wasn’t necessarily a case for being, or becoming, a vegetarian but more about mindful eating. Why do we eat the way we do? What or who has shaped our decisions about what we eat?

As I’m doing my yoga 40 Day Challenge this resonates with me because after all I’m continuing my path to becoming more mindful. Really pay attention when I’m talking to my loved ones, not just looking forward to what is coming but being present to what is happening now, etc. I do so love it when things seem to be in sync like this.

So that’s the scoop for now. I hope you all have a super weekend and more bookish talk soon.
