Don’t you love reading in bed?
I look forward to it every night (no matter how late).
I’ve got a towering stack on my bedside table
and on the lower shelf are a few I’ve read, and a few I haven’t yet.

Sonia Purnell has at long last given Clementine Churchill the biography she deserves. Sensitive yet clear-eyed, Clementine tells the fascinating story of a complex woman struggling to maintain her own identity while serving as the conscience and principal adviser to one of the most important figures in history. I was enthralled all the way through.
~ Lynne Olson, bestselling author of Citizens of London
BOOK: Clementine: The Life of Mrs. Winston Churchill by Sonia Purnell
I’ve been dipping into this one for advice and inspiration:
THE MAKEUP WAKEUP
Women 40+ tell us they feel invisible in a world of beauty that is really marketing to younger women. We felt a need to write a beauty guide we’d read ourselves, one that solved the kinds of issues women face every day.
~ Authors Lois Joy Johnson and Sandy Linter
BOOK: The Makeup Wakeup: Revitalizing Your Look at Any Age by Lois Joy Johnson and Sandy Linter
This fascinating book made me want to rush out and buy Chanel No. 5:
THE SECRET OF CHANEL NO. 5
Here is the life of one of the 20th century’s most interesting and deeply complicated women, a fascinating cultural history, and the story of an extraordinary perfume.
~Chandler Burr, New York Times scent critic and author of The Perfect Scent
BOOK: The Secret of Chanel No. 5: The Intimate History of the World’s Most Famous Perfume by Tilar J Mazzeo
Here is food for thought.
