Stacks of books



Lottie has stacks and stacks of books. It gets annoying at times, she keeps buying them and never really reading many. She keeps telling me one day I will but then she never does. She always finds an excuse not to read and to buy even more. What can I do?



No despair I found the ideal solution. I found  a challenge for Lottie which is run by Darcy over at Art and Sole. Each month for one year Lottie needs to read one book of her choice and is then allowed to create a piece of art work inspired by that month's book. Also each month a book review needs to be written. I will help her with that. At the end of each month both art work and book review will be posted on this blog. Wish us luck.





Lottie's books for 2013 are on my sidebar

Quite a wide-ranging booklist. I'll be interested in the review/art of the Art Therapy one - such an interesting subject area.
Also I'll find it interesting to read your views on Steal Like An Artist - I read a few reviews on Amazon which made me decide not to add it to my Kindle, so here's to your review.
