Books by Covers

I don't think you can judge a book by its cover, but...
I think you can get a glimpse of someone by several things. Namely... their grocery cart contents, their magazine subscriptions and their library card printouts.

For example: My monthly magazine subscriptions are:

Canadian Living
Martha Stewart Living
Everyday Food
Country Living
Real Simple
Yoga Journal
Food and Wine
National Geographic
Canadian History

So what does that say about me? I like to practice yoga, keep it simple, decorate, parent and partner. I like to learn history, Canadian and otherwise. I like to keep on top of current events and long for country life.

By the magazines I don't subscribe to you can know I am not into sports. I don't like beauty and fashion and fancy schmancy  stuff. Plain Jane outdoorsy, simple yogini who likes good food and  cheap  good wine.

And my library books for the week, homeschooling books not included:
Well I won't reprint the titles but I think you get the idea.
Same sort of theme only in hardcover.

We are all so unique aren't we? Yet somehow we are all the same. We want to love and be loved. We want to know and be known. We want to learn and to teach, give and receive.

So I wonder, what magazines and books are in your home, waiting to be read? Do you think they paint a portrait of who you are? I'd like to meet you. :)

I think your reading choices reflect a beautiful portrait of who you are. Most of my reading happens on my Nook now. I have one subscription, to the NY Times. I just finished reading How to Love an American Man(a novel) and Oh No She Didn't!(a book about fashion by Clinton Kelly). Waiting on my desk is Onward, by Howard Shultz(Starbucks) and a screeplay called Birthdays, written by my grandmother-in-law. What an odd assortmenmt I have!

This is so funny Dawn. I was just telling Paul this afternoon that you seem to be a woman with one foot in the country and one foot on the fashion runway. :)

Holy Wow- you are so lucky you have to many subscriptions. I am jealous! Love the library book both old and young too. xo m.
