Read like an artist
10 things worth sharing: why I’m starting a new book club, ear and eye candy, and more...
Here are 10 things I thought were worth sharing this week:
I’m starting a book club! It’s called Read Like An Artist. Every month I’ll pick a book I love that’s related to living a more creative life. Here’s why I’m starting the club and how I chose this first book. If it sounds fun, I hope you’ll sign up!
To whet your appetite for the book club, here are some of my favorite posts I’ve written about reading: how to read more, how to eat a book, reading with a pencil, reading more than one book at a time, why you should read old books, books as distance learning, and books that suck you in and spin you out.
Business has been so weird lately, I’m fully prepared for somebody to offer me a contract in Dog Money.
Documentary: I loved the concert film Depeche Mode 101. Made by D.A. Pennebaker (who made another favorite music documentary of mine, Don’t Look Back) and crew, it not only captures the band at their peak, it’s often blamed for The Real World and helping birth reality TV. (Another Depeche Mode related documentary worth tracking down is Synth Britannia.)
Books are like people: Sometimes they need fresh air and sunshine.
