All the world's a library

I have just registered with Book Crossing - it's an amazing concept! I saw a book propped on a vacant cycle machine at the gym the other day and I wondered if it had been released... Looking up today, I saw that it wasn't mentioned, but several others are at large in my neighbourhood, so I might just go hunting!

Three beautiful things

Read a great book recently - Enough by John Naish - which really spoke to me. The author proposes that we have really ENOUGH information, stuff, food, etc and that Western society's endless striving for 'evermore' is making us all ill, individually and collectively. Hoo boy....

He cited the blog Three Beautiful Things as being a great example of the conscious decision to swim against the more-more drive; instead, the writer of the blog chooses to be grateful for every little thing.

She has my vote.
