The Library Stack

The Library Stack

Continuing my new ongoing series with a snapshot of what crafting, quilting, cooking, gardening, decorating, self-improvement, etc. books I currently have on loan from my local library.

Here is the stack (soon to be returned though, I have finished with them and it’s time to get a new stack!):


I took this photo a week ago and there is one book that was in the stack, but not in the photo, that I have just finished and I highly enjoyed: Brave Enough by Cheryl Strayed (2015).

Cheryl Strayed is the author of the book Wild: From Lost to Found on the Pacific Crest Trail (2013), a wonderful book and a wonderful film (even Terry the Quilting Husband enjoyed the film and he dislikes films about “finding yourself”.)  

Her latest book Brave Enough is a collection of quotes from her other writings.A couple quotes really stayed with me after reading them and I wanted to share:

“You can’t ride to the fair unless you get on the pony”

“Hello, fear. Thank you for being here. You’re my indication that I’m doing that I need to do.”

“Forgiveness doesn’t just sit there like a pretty boy in a bar. Forgiveness is the old fat guy you have to haul up the hill.”

  1. So is Cheryl Strayed the author AND the subject of “Wild”? Is it autobiographical or biographical? I just haven’t read or seen the story and am not sure. Good quotes either way! Love the one about forgiveness

    1. It is autobiographical written by Cheryl Strayed (her name is a pseudonym as she will explain in the book) about her life changing adventure hiking the PCT (after some rough living and life changes) – I think it is definitely worth the read. The film is an abbreviated version but they did a nice job capturing the essence of the book in the film. I will never forgot that forgiveness quote, I love it too! Thanks for reading my blog and commenting!
