I’ve grown suspicious of the inspirational. It’s overrated. I suspect duty — that half-forgotten word — may be more related to happiness than we think. Want to be happy? Mow the lawn. Collect the dead leaves. Paint the room. Do the dishes. Get a job. Labor until fatigue is in your very bones. Persist day after day. Be stoical. Never whine. Think less about the why of what you do than getting it done.

Lately, I've been in need of some extra R&R. That means more time for reading (and binge watching Orange is the New Black!) Thought I'd share my summer reading list for those looking for some book recommendations.
+ The Light Between Oceans by M.L. Stedman (currently reading)
+ Beautiful Ruins by Jess Walter
+ Euphoria by Lily King
+ Boys on the Boat by Daniel James Brown
+ East of Eden by John Steinbeck
