Simply Books – May

Hi!  I have been doing a bunch of reading this past month in several different areas.  Lately it seems like the more books I find to read the more good ones I find out there 🙂

I have read several from the Simple Family sale this month and these are the ones I enjoyed the most:

  • Inside-Out Simplicity – This is not an easy or quick read, but full of the principles to living a simple life.  Nothing in this book tells you what decorations to keep or how to organize the kitchen.  This book is written for the deeper layers of simplicity.  How we think, what we believe, and how we relate.  I enjoyed it because it gets to the heart of the matter.  We need more simplicity in our heads than we need in our houses.  This simplicity is harder to figure out but working on it has incredible benefits.
  • How to Have Your Cake and Eat It, Too – As soon as I opened it up I immediately fell in love with this book.  It is a book for running a personal business and is not specific to blogging at all.  It is written to moms who are trying to also work (pretty broad group) and there is lots of great help and encouragement.  I think my personality is very similar to Mandi’s and I just loved hearing her story.
  • Blogger Behave: Make your blog benefit your life, so you can love both! – I enjoyed this book as a blogger.  I loved Laura’s writing style and felt she was super genuine.  I love books/authors like that.  After reading the book it feels like you have made a new friend as well as gotten a bunch of advice.  Lots in it would also benefit other businesses as well.
  • Tell Your Time: How to Manage Your Schedule So You Can Live Free – Short but full book on time management.  There is no filler in this book (which goes great with the time management theme).  You can sit down and read it in an hour and come back to it again and again if you want.  Easy to read and full of good stuff.

I have been looking over a bunch of vegan cookbooks from the library but haven’t found anything I have loved.  Do you know/use any good cookbooks that are simple but use whole food ingredients (not packages of other pre-packaged stuff)?  

For June I am really excited about reading:

Here is the book trailer:

What to read either of these with me?  What are you reading now?


  1. Our favorite vegan cookbook is Vegan Planet. The author also has Vegan on the Cheap, which we also like. Two recipes I can think of from VP that we really enjoy are Spicy Peanut Noodles and African Peanut Stew.

    • thanks! I will take a look 🙂
