I just want to curl up with a good book.

I rarely say that. When I’m honest I can admit I’m not a great reader, when I’m lying I say I’m ok.  It’s odd, because as the daughter of a librarian and teacher you would have thought some of those traits would have been inherently passed down. It’s not second nature to sit along quietly and read, but I’m trying to improve and bulk up my reading list this year.

I’m currently working through these four books and have really been enjoying them. Yes, I have to stop myself and make time to read, but when I do I come away with a feeling of accomplishment. So here’s my current reading list:

The Luminous Portrait by Elizabeth Messina  |  Born to Run by Christopher McDougall  |  Unbroken by Laura Hillenbrand  |  Design Sponge at Home by Grace Bonney

I may not be as consistent at reading books, but I do love to curl up with a good blog (That sounds weird, but you get the point). I subscribe to several blogs in my google reader and catch up on multiple posts a few times a week. My favorites rotate but lately include: Oh Joy!  |  Design for Mankind  |  Design Sponge  |  Designtripper

What have you guys been reading? Would you rather books or blogs – and leave some recommendations for me if you like!
