the best books on minimalism

If you know anything about me you know that two of my biggest passions are reading and minimalism. Fortunately for me over the past few years there have been quite a few books published that deal with minimalism, decluttering, and looking at the items that you have in your life.

the best books i read this month – december 2018

Happy End to 2018! Now I don’t know how this year was for you, but for me this was definitely a year of change. I completed my masters degree, moved back across the country to British Columbia, started my first post grad job and started really planning for the future. Despite all this I was…

my favourite graphic novels

I used to be a book snob who would never pick up a graphic novel as I didn’t count it as real reading, wow I really missed out on a few years of my life. Now I really enjoy graphic novels, both as a break from regular books as well as enjoyment all on their…
