Coming Up With This List Was Really Hard!
Happy Friday! 🙂 Phew, we made it!
Today I’ve got a new installment of the 10 Day Challenge!
Putting together a list of fictional books that I love would have been crazy hard! I mean, if you take the Harry Potter series alone you’re asking me to pair down from seven books to just four, a fairly impossible task when each one is so damn good.
Instead I want to share four books that really mean something special to me. These are books I’m pretty sure you’ve never heard of ;).
1. Kristina & Adam’s Adventures in Paris and London
Surprise, surprise! This is one of my favorite books!
When Adam and I got home from Europe in September I immediately created this photobook through Shutterfly.
It’s got about 50 pages of my favorite photos from the trip in it. Pairing down the photos to use was so hard, I think we ended the trip with well over 500 photos in total!
This was my first trip to Europe and it was everything I hoped it would be and more.
Next year our big trip is to Thailand (more on that soon), but I am looking forward to visiting Europe again sometime!
2. The Night Before Christmas Voice Book by My Dad
When I was a little girl my dad used to read me The Night Before Christmas every Christmas Eve and then he would sleep in my room so we could wait up for Santa together.
I’m pretty sure he would fall asleep in the chair about 2 seconds after the lights went out every single time, but it was still a lot of fun!
A couple of years ago he recorded this voice book of our favorite Christmas story. When I played it for the first time I literally bawled my eyes out! Just thinking about listening to it right now is making me teary!
3. Grad School Thesis Binder
Okay, so this one is technically not a book… but for the purpose of this blog post let’s pretend it is!
This binder contains all of the most important academic papers I read to help me with my master’s thesis, a rhetorical analysis of Glenn Beck’s show and how it affects voter decisions.
The binder weights about 500lbs and is made up of a lot of trees and ink, but in this case printing out the papers was super helpful for me. There’s just something about being able to write notes and highlight things that makes the research process 10X easier.
4. Inspirational (Note)Book
I bought this notebook at Barnes & Noble a few years ago because I thought the saying was so beautiful.
I’ve never written anything in it because I do this weird thing where I feel like I can’t write in really nice notebooks unless I have something worthy to say.
Maybe someday I’ll know what to write in it. Until then I’ll just keep writing in this blog instead :).
If you HAD to choose, would you know what book to name as your absolute favorite book of all time?
What’s your fave running book? You know mine is “Eat & Run” by Scott Jurek!
