It's been an interesting year so far. I've lost both my Moms. My mother died in January after a long decline. Soon after, my Mother-in-Law went in for bypass surgery. While her heart healed, other issues zapped her strength and she died April 22.

I may have challenge update posts but I don't know when I'll be posting regularly or when I'll get to visit everyone who is working on the challenges I'm hosting.

Art Books?

I'm one of those people that doesn't understand "art." I like what I like and don't think about it too much. I do have a book to review that uses art to get ideas across so maybe....




How much art needs to be in a book to qualify? Use your best judgment! I've read books I thought would be about art, and they weren't. I've read books I had no idea were about art, but they were. Relax, have fun and enjoy reading!

Well, okay, I'm up for this. I'll sign-up for.....

Curious - Read at least 3 books about art, either fiction or non-fiction.

1. The Art of Meaningful Living (I'll be reading this in March)

2. The Cat, the Quilt and the Corpse (the main character is a fiber artist)

? The Gardner Heist: The True Story of the World's Largest Unsolved Art Theft by Ulrich Boser

I did the Art History Challenge last year, not knowing anything about art when I started, and I loved how much I learned! I highly recommend The Story of Art by E.H. Gombirch as a wonderful introduction.

I didn't do this one in 2009, but I saw a number of great titles as I read thru the various reviews.

Have fun with the reading challenges you're doing in 2010!

I am doing a similar one to this via Heidenkind's Hideaway blog.
