My Reading Resolution

One of my resolutions for 2014 is to read more and I've been stacking up books on my nightstand accordingly.

ON MY NIGHTSTAND
 
-My mom gave me The Happiness Project and I'm loving it. It's a self-help book disguised as a memoir - so I'm picking up tons of great life tidbits while merely immersing myself in Gretchen Rubin's life which is interesting enough on its own.
 
-The Chels monster has a new book coming out, Uganda Be Kidding Me, in March which I'll read. She's going on tour too - including a Houston stop on March 3rd.
 
-And like Vanessa Williams, I've saved the best for last!
 
I'd Rather be Short - 100 Reasons Why It's Great to be Small is as cute, creative, and corky as its author - Miss Becky Murphy. Becky, who I feel honored to call a friend, is just one of those people who's cool without trying. She's got that X factor that Simon was always talking about on Idol, before he impregnated his friends' wife.  Becky's funny, talented, smart, warm, successful, and humble - all of which comes through in her blog, Chipper Things. She's the whole package y'all. If it sounds like I have a lesbian crush on her it's because I do.
 
True to her cool form, Becky's publisher agreed to give a Greetings From Texas readers a copy of the book. Simply leave your email address in my comments section and I'll pick a winner next Thursday (January 16th) at noon! Enter anytime up until then.
 
 
Happy Weekend everyone!
 
 
P.S. I feel compelled to tell you that I recently found cute dresses from the Garage  and want one of each. That's all. Carry on!

  2. Ooh, I want to read all three of those books! I'm tall, but the book about being short sounds fun anyway.

    And I LOVED The Happiness Project. One of my favorites that I've read in the past few years, or at least one of the ones I think about most often!
