I have decided that sharing books is the next step in this being an Author thing, and the renewal of my book love. So I am starting the Write Book Club! Each month I will share the books I am reading, and will review some of them. I will chat on social media with the hashtag #thewritebookclub You can join me, and hopefully we will grow a community of readers and writers. I would love you to read some of the books I am reading, and share your thoughts.
For the first book, I want to share one that has captivated me – “The Hidden Life of Trees – What They Feel, How They Communicate—Discoveries From a Secret World” by Peter Wohlleben. I am reading this and another magical book, “The Wild Trees” by Richard Preston. Both of these are helping me research for my new book, tentatively called, “The Forest Keepers”. It is a middle-grade fantasy and I am absolutely loving the process of writing the story – I will share more about this soon.
This book answers the question – Are trees social beings? I have always thought so and my love affair with trees goes back to my childhood. I instinctively reach out to touch trees, resting my face on their bark. I often talk to trees and feel as if they are looking out for me. In this book, forester and author Peter Wohlleben convincingly makes the case that the forest is indeed a community, with a network of communication channels.

Har känts som en bra vecka i livet. Det funkar att jobba 50% och känslan av mer energi i kroppen har funnits under veckan. Men pangbom så kommer den där trötta och ledsna känslan över en. Bara så där. 😞 Hoppas den går att sova bort. Nya tag imorgon då. ❤ #utmattningssyndrom

Wanderschaft ist die am süchtigsten machende Droge, glaube ich, und jede verborgene Straße führt zu einem Dutzend weiterer. (Stephen King -Wolfsmond)
