jo: steal like and artist by austin kleon… this book is so inspirational. it feels personal and truly creative, in an easy, everyday kind of way. it made me feel like 'yes! i can always be creative! anyone can be creative! i can find ideas and do things!' steal like an artist makes creativity seem very relaxed, fun, and something that can become a way of life... and i would really love to live that type of life.
julia: soul surfer:: clash by rick bundschuh and inspired by bethany hamilton…this book is really good. it's fiction mostly, but the author writes about what he thinks bethany would say and do. when a new girl comes to bethany's hometown, bethany is not sure she wants to know this girl, because she over hears her say mean things to her mom. the new girl, jenna, sees bethany and her friends together and finds herself wishing she could be with them. bethany and her friends aren't so sure about jenna, but when they find out more about her. the girls invite jenna into their group.
