The Library Stack

Continuing my ongoing series, The Library Stack,  sharing my latest stack of borrowed books from my beloved local public library.

This time it is a mix of crafting, craft business, healthy living and home decorating books:


I just finished The Living Clearly Method by Hilaria Baldwin and now I am reading How to Make It by Erin Austen Abbott.

This is my second time borrowing The Living Clearly Method. The first time I borrowed it I made a delicious lentil soup with cinnamon recipe from the book. I took the book out again to make the soup again. I realized the first time I only skimmed the book, this time I spent longer with the book and appreciated many insights in the book (though you would never catch me doing yoga poses in NYC in high heels!).

Chapter 7 of this book is about Balance and the chapter opens with a great Rumi quote that resonated with me:

Your hand opens and closes. If it were always a fist or always stretched open, you would be paralyzed.Your deepest presence is in every small contracting and expanding, the two as beautifully balanced and coordinated as birds’ wings.

– Rumi


Today I picked up a new stack of library books that I had on reserve and all became available at once! So now I have a super stack. I will save those for a future post.

  1. Great selection of books. I’m impressed by the variety. You read books and I watch documentaries. I’ve recently watched one on minimalism, tiny houses and sustainability. So thought provoking as well as moving. They have made a lasting impression on me.

  2. An exciting library haul! I think I’ve seen ‘Flea Market Style’ at our local library; this is reminding me to pick it up next time I pass thru. Your blog is such a great source of fun and cool reads! More books = more ideas and inspiration, as I see it! Happy reading, Tierney. 😀

    1. I know and that is why I only skimmed the book the first time I borrowed it, but then the lentil soup recipe was excellent and so I borrowed it again and actually read much of it – she has some good insight and it is not just Hollywood wife with a book fluff 🙂
