Reading

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.

This is what I’m currently reading loving:

CLEMENTINE

IMG_0082

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

I’ve been dipping into this one for advice and inspiration:

THE MAKEUP WAKEUP

Here is food for thought.

IS SUNSCREEN THE NEW MARGARINE? 

Current guidelines for sun exposure are unhealthy and unscientific, controversial new research suggests—and quite possibly even racist. How did we get it so wrong?
