We have a mobile library that comes every Monday, and the books I get out are either non fiction, or autobiographies. I don't want to read something that someone has made up, because I think real life is far more interesting. I also want to learn something, so I'll choose a wide variety of subjects. For instance, crafts, vegetarian cookery, computers, travel, psychology, sociology, animals, gardening, films, in fact all kinds of books.
The three that I am reading at the moment are self help books :-
How To Survive Past 55, What science tells us about ageing well, by Deanna Wilson.
The Elephant and the Twig, The art of positive thinking, by Geoff Thompson.
Quantum Wellness, A step by step guide to health and happiness, by Kathy Freston.
Apparently there is a massive industry out there for these type of books, as people are keen to improve the quality of their life. They are almost like Bibles, follow these golden rules and you are guaranteed a life of success and happiness. I quite like that idea, everything you need to know in a book.
I have been reading all about keeping fit for life, putting the sparkle in life, the anti ageing remedy, why diet matters, physical excercise, becoming your own healer, stepping up to the life that is calling you, how to get the energy for the journey, and develop your talent. There's a whole load of advice and information for anyone who wants a long and fulfilled life.
I am so glad I got these books out, because it has confirmed to me that I am doing everything about right, and I therefore expect to live to be 100. Toodle pip :o)
