Read Any Good Fiction Books?

I always enjoy hearing what fiction books YOU are reading!

  • What is your past favorite book as a child?
  • What did you read recently?
  • And perhaps… What you just started! 🙂

Below are my answers to these questions (highlighted):

And my goals for reading books this year – I hope to read at least one book a month:

I enjoyed this assignment from Carla Sonheim in the 365 Daily Creative Practice online class.  It made me pay attention to the first sentence of a book of fiction.

After all, I do believe it IS that first sentence that truly grabs my attention!

Happy Reading!

Cheers! 🙂

 

What Are You Reading?

Summer is the time that I like to curl up in the shade and read a good book.  So I decided to make a couple of bookmarkers with my silly fish:

silly fish bookmarkers

I drew them with a black Micron pen and then colored with Copic markers and Prismacolor pencils.

I think I like “Baby Face” the best!  🙂  Do you have a favorite?

I am currently reading this book, “Sarah’s Key” by Tatiana de Rosnay:

book I'm reading now

It is an excellent story about July 1942, the days of the Vel’ d’Hiv’ in Nazi-occupied Paris.  Have you read it?

I borrowed my book from a friend so I thought I’d return it with one of my fish bookmarkers.

I also made one to keep for myself – this one is double-sided:

other side of fish bookmarker

2 sided fish bookmarker

I used cheap watercolors and Prismacolor pencils to color this one.

What book you are reading or would you recommend?  I’d love to hear from you!

Happy Reading!  🙂
