the pile beside my bed...

...is books. i read two or three at a time - generally one is fiction, one is a craft book, and one is something metaphysical. right now here's what's currently in my beside pile:

Fiction: The Fifth Sacred Thing. I'm re-reading this one after only having read it the first time a few months ago. Not sure why except perhaps that I'm out of other fiction and also thinking this might put my head in mind for the upcoming road trip. Interestingly, I appear to be reading two books by Starhawk at once, tho it wasn't a conscious choice.

Craft: Sexy Little Knits: Chic Designs to Knit and Crochet. knitting and crochet are two of my "lesser" hobbies along with spinning yarn, and i only do them when i can't make jewelry or i'm in an inspiration "lull". i also generally only do it when it's cold and am usually fascinated with creating lingerie. This book has great patterns for that. Hopefully I can finish this bikini by january.

Metaphysical: The Earth Path: Grounding Your Spirit in the Rhythms of Nature. I've always loved Starhawk for her down-to-earth, non-wishy-washy approach to things as well as her nature-focused concepts. This book serves a dual purpose as a good fluid read as well as a great guide for developing personal and group rituals to honor nature.

What have you been reading lately?
