Between the Covers {let’s talk books}

favorite-books This afternoon I had the good fortuneĀ  of my daughter falling asleep in the car and actually staying asleep the entire time I perused the shelves at Barnes & Noble. Can you believe it? I got almost an hour and a half on uninterrupted browsing time, Sure, the BF and I go to Barnes & Noble all the time, but there’s something to be said about wandering the aisles, taking your sweet time. Bliss.

After browsing the bargain books (my art reference book heaven), art, web design, cookbooks, photography, and science sections (I’m not that much of a fiction reader lately) I spotted a copy of A Brief History of Time, and remembered that it’s been on my to-read list for years. I’ve always been interested in space, astronomy, time, where the universe came from…pretty much everything that the book is about. I can’t believe it took me this long to read it.

Since I have books on the brain right now, I thought it might be fun to share a couple of my favorites with you.
