I was an avid reader as a younger person, and although I enjoy a good novel now and again most of my current books come from the non-fiction section. I have stacks of watercolor, art, and drawing tutorial books in my collection currently and enjoy reading thoughts and opinions of others while gleaning bits of information. I never want to stop learning!
My daughter gifted me a 66-color Try It color sheet from Daniel Smith, so I opted to use a shimmering paint to create the gilded lines on the book spine and front.
As far as novels, I like a nice fluffy story because the world needs more softness. I read novels in order to escape into other places, imaginary or not, and this helps me relax and decompress. I mostly prefer a real book as compared to a digital reader – what is your preference?
