I just started recently reading for pleasure again. I joined a book club started by my good friend C. So far I’ve read Silver Linings Playbook with them and now we’re reading Jodi Picoult’s The Storyteller – which reminds me, I have to get cracking on that book since our meet up is next week!
I’ve been a bit sidelined in reading the book as I’m also trying to improve my photography and I’ve been doing a lot of online research on buying a new lens for my DSLR, which I’m trying to do before a family trip. So of the list below, I’ve gotten pretty far into the Dummies book. The other ones I bought in anticipation of becoming a new mom and while I’ve gotten through parts of them, I haven’t gotten much chance to delve into them as most of my free time is spent on this blog!
Here’s my summer reading list:
Nikon D90 for Dummies by Julie Adair King
Your Baby in Pictures by Me Ra Koh
Photographing Children – Photo Workshop by Ginny Felch and Allison Tyler Jones
How to Photograph Your Baby by Nick Kelsh
I can’t give my opinion on the books above yet, since I’m still getting through them, but if enough folks express interest, I could be persuaded to do a short review after I get through them.
In addition to books, I like to read home decor magazines. Currently, I have subscriptions to Elle Decor and Architectural Digest. I also recently subscribed to Click, a new bimonthly magazine from clickin moms. It’s full of nice photo related eye candy and even though so much information is online now, there’s still something about holding your reading material in your hands. I guess that’s why I love the physical permanence of photo books so much!
In terms of online sites, I often check out Digital Photography School. I’ve actually guest posted on that site a couple times and it’s chock full of good information. I also frequently pin sites that I want to get back to on my Pinterest. Two boards you may be interested in are: “Photo Book Inspiration” and “Photography Tips”.
