Noicities: On my Bookshelf ~ the little lioness

Noicities: On my Bookshelf

Well, actually, scattered around the house are the books I’m reading at the moment, thanks to little brown boxes from Amazon

(sharing this for the Noice-ities this weekend!)

The lonely planet guide to Germany… planning, scoping out bars, bike paths, accommodation, trains, planes, history…
Generally using it to get myself excited, and to try to plan a little ahead so I don’t spend the first morning of each city wondering what to do over breakfast!

IBS for Dummies.
Now I KNOW I’m not a Dummy, but I’m liking the structure and the order of this book, which allows me to work through ideas.
(even though I started towards the back! oh and even if I don’t agree with some of the content :p)
I still wouldn’t feel comfortable pulling it out in public to read, but it’s telling me and reassuring me that I’m heading in the right direction.
You know how I’ve been doing this stress course? It’s amazing how stress you get in the actual sessions! I need to learn me some RELAXING!

Life is a verb. A doing word. It’s encouraged me to do a little free writing, which I’ll do more of once I’ve gotten this essay handed in (I’m not procrastinating, I’m rest resting it, like a piece of meat, before I go back for the final edit ahead of submitting it). I used to write a lot more, writing in note books, writing online. About me, I mean, not about the food I’m eating, or the flowers I see, but writing for me, about me, about the thoughts in my head, exploring and explaining. And I think I’m about to do more if it. I have a notebook ready to take away, one for my travel journal- for the tickets, the random, and one just for me.

I’ll be in Melbourne in 48 hours! And on a plane to Germany in 2 weeks! (I have a few cheap paperbacks for the flights, you know, to leave somewhere if I don’t feel they need to be brought home! Bookcrossing?)

    Sounds as if you have some exciting stuff coming up in terms of travel. Melbourne, then Germany! Both places are great- I am more than a little jealous!!!

    Life is a Verb sounds like an interesting book!

    Just to share- I am currently reading The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo (Stieg Larsson) and also have started reading The Language Instinct today as well. Only a couple pages into that one though!
