Reading Sara: Sunday Morning Reads


I get it, sometimes it is really hard to get through an entire book – to make time to read among the many other things that keep us all so very busy. As you know if you are following this blog, I am an avid reader, and I absolutely love to read books. But sometimes on Sunday mornings, I like to drink my coffee while reading interesting articles instead of books.

I love the feeling of learning new things, I feel full of information and that I am making my brain bigger. These articles are sometimes about fun things, or things that I just stumble upon, but find fascinating. I love being able to use my new knowledge during the week to have interesting conversations and recommend articles to others. So, on this lovely Sunday morning, I thought I would share some of the best articles that I have read recently:

For the coolest scientist job ever: That Stinky Cheese Is a Result of Evolutionary Overdrive, New York Times online.

When you are feeling like you need some alternative medicine or some Zen on your Sunday morning:  Why Reiki, Crystals, and Flower Essences are Going Mainstream, by Vanity Fair. Side Note: I have a salt crystal lamp that is supposedly helping with my sinus problems…yet to be determined.

For the next baby shower you need to go to: 6 Things You Didn’t Know about ‘The Giving Tree’ Author Shel Silverstein, from the Huffington Post.

Did you dream of being an astronaut growing up? And maybe don’t have time to read an entire article or a book? Check out these incredible new photos of Pluto: New Horizons photos of Pluto includes new ‘snakeskin’ image, on the Washington Post.

Need a refresher on what is going on with the European Migration Crisis before meeting up with your international-focused friend for coffee? European Migration Crisis, by the Council on Foreign Relations is a good overview.

Hope you have a happy Sunday and get some time in to read!
