I used to find reading quite difficult.
I thought I should read novels but could rarely finish them. More recently I've been reading what I think is described as nature writing. I read Notes from Walnut Tree Farm and loved it. Then Brooke recommended Summer at Little Lava which equally inspired me. Both stories of connectedness to nature. Not even really stories, but observations, journals. Really enjoying those accounts of living within nature helped me to relax about reading and now I can't stop buying books, nature writing or not. These are the ones I've got my hands on recently, which sit beside my bed. Three of these books are individuals journeys of connecting with nature and the rest a mix of things that currently interest me - herbs, japanese asthetic, japanese cooking, and places to walk in London.
