Five books arrived from the LA Public Library today — my next collection of books to read. Here is what is in the stack on reading table next to my chair.
Twyla Tharp: The Collaborative Habit
I enjoyed Tharp’s earlier book, The Creative Habit: Learn It and Use It for Life so this one caught my eye when browsing through my Amazon.com Recommendations.
Trust the Process
by Shaun McNiff
I am starting on a reading, and re-reading, of several books related to the artistic process. New Media has a lot of similarities to more traditional arts, so I am reading to see what commonalities I can find.
Art & Fear: Observations On the Perils (and Rewards) of Artmaking by David Bayles and Ted Orland
Another book on the arts, but this time more directed at my personal arts process and how I can re-invigorate it.
Path of Least Resistance: Learning to Become the Creative Force in Your Own Life by Robert Fritz
One final book on creativity and making the best use possible of it.
Artisan Bread in Five Minutes a Day: The Discovery That Revolutionizes Home Baking
Jeff Hertzberg MD , Zoe Francois
Lastly in this group of books is this “cookbook” for lack of a better word. Artisan Bread in Five Minutes a Day has been getting a lot of buzz on the Internet and this is actually a re-read for me. This time, though, since I am back to cooking a lot, I want to try the process a couple of times. I didn’t get around to it the last time I read the book.
