If the title hasn’t given it away, TODAY IS MY BIRTHDAY!!!
Although today I work, I still will set aside time to celebrate – and more festivities will occur over the weekend, don’t worry! In the last few years, I have started embracing my birthday by bringing my different groups of friends together on adventures. Last year was a trampoline park and watching Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them. This year will include dinner and a holiday craft fair and lights show! Now, thinking further ahead for future birthdays, I literally Googled “book themed birthday party for adults.” Try it!! This may be a lofty goal for my 30th, we shall see 🙂
As I reflect on my bookish life so far, I have worked consistently on one of my 30 before 30 goals of reading every book I own – hence the TBR Pile page! Additionally (and also ironically) I’ve thought about my minimalist lifestyle and what that means for receiving gifts. It has become increasingly more difficult to create a gift list for myself since experiences mean much more to me then objects. There are usually some gift cards on there (food, gas, clothes) and then other practical items. I saw this post on the Silent Book Club Facebook Page and thought how meaningful this idea can be for those who want to give a birthday gift. My main Love Language is Quality Time so great birthday gifts could include sharing one’s favorite book to me on my birthday, and then once I’ve finished reading it, grabbing a meal/coffee with me to discuss it – what we liked, didn’t like, have been inspired to do, felt emotional or connected to, etc.
What are your favorite books that I can enjoy on my birthday? 🙂
