#FridayReads: January 6,2017 (Harry Potter & The Book of Joy)

Happy Friday,

I don’t think that I have been more excited for the weekend than I am today. Just one more work shift and you can bet your bottom dollar that I will be tucked in bed either reading or napping. Napping will probably over rule though.

But, without further or due let me share with you what I plan on reading this weekend.

Firstly, I would like to make a 100 page progress in Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire. Like I said in previous posts, I have been loving the writing in this novel. It is so beautiful and I can’t help but find myself lost in the story only to look up and see that an hour or two has past by.

Secondly, I started reading an AMAZING book called “The Book of Joy”, by the Dali Lama and Desmond Tutu. I have been feeling rather lost and sad the past week. the-book-of-joyAn bookstagram account called Artria Books, which is a publishing branch of Penguin, posted a picture of the book with a quote that went like this ” Everyday is a new opportunity to begin again. Every day is your birthday.” This quote spoke volumes to me, I had this urge to rush out and buy the book.It was as if the Dalai Lama and the Archbishop had something they need to share with me.

So, far this book has made me cry, pretty much on every page. This book is a conversation that occurred between the Archbishop and the Dalai Lama, although they believe in different faiths they both have devoted a lifetime to worlds happiness. This book shows how they have found happiness themselves and although they both have been in such tragic situations they have never lived a more happier and fulfilled life. Its inspiring, beautiful and a ray of hope that I personally needed this week.

What are you reading this weekend? Have you had a rough week as well?

I wish you all peace, love and joy.

One Love Always,

Rina
