April was another slow reading month for me. It's hard to find the time to read when you're working a bajillion hours, but it also makes for a very nice break from the daily grind.
The Princess Marries the Page by Edna St. Vincent Millay. This book was a gift from a coworker for helping with some of her training, which I think is probably the sweetest thing ever. The book is the second sweetest thing ever. I read it on a beautiful springy day in the park (shown above), which I believe to be the appropriate setting for reading such sweetness, and it was wonderful. The copy my coworker gifted to me is a lovely old copy, too, complete with 1930s illustrations (also shown above) and an old library card in the front, which is almost just too much.
Manifesting Wealth by Taylor Ellwood. I have a confession to make: I love self-help books. Self-help books on finance might be my favorite. So when I found out that a new friend had written one from a perspective of using magic to improve finances, I couldn't resist. Witchcraft and self-help? Sign me up! It's interesting how your perspective of a book can change when you know the author. Something about knowing the person in real life drove home to me how much work must have gone into his book. Well done, Taylor!
