The Art of Mindful Reading
The Art of Mindful Reading: Embracing the Wisdom of Words | Ella Berthoud
3 posts | 3 read | 16 to read
The healing power of reading has been renowned since Aristotle; focus, flow and enlightenment can all be discovered through this universal act. The Art of Mindful Reading embraces the joy of absorbing words on a page, encouraging a state of mind as deeply therapeutic and vital to our wellbeing as breathing. Bibliotherapist Ella Berthoud asks if reading is our daily nourishment how best should it be consumed? How should you read mindfully? And why will reading mindfully help you to read better? She explores how reading mindfully can shape the person you are, give you your moral backbone, and teaches empathy with others. Through meditative exercises, engaging anecdote, and expert insight, she reveals the enriching potential of reading for mindfulness.

My first book for #deweysreadathon done! I got a late start since the kittens kept me up all night, but I‘m finally all settled in. I loved this book. While not all of her tips were helpful, I appreciated the time spent in a book focused on reminding us to be mindful of what we read, to savor the words and the pages. ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

Litsy fam -- you all would definitely appreciate this book! I had a perfect morning of reading this in the tub with a fall candle and a bath bomb. Plus, look at those endpapers! 🤩 #readaboutreading #selfcaresunday #bookandbath

To be honest, I already practice a lot of the things that were mentioned in the book, really, a lot of them. But, even I took home a few things that I want to try out, like writing six word memoirs.

I'd recommend this book to anyone who thinks they don't have enough time for reading, reading is boring, reading is a selfish past-time, but also to anyone who is an avid reader. Obviously, even avid readers can still gain something from this book.
