Timeless Simplicity

While having a bit of a sort and tidy I came across some of the books that started me thinking about living simply. I've decided to reread a few and am starting with one of my favourites.

Timeless simplicity by John Lane (ISBN 1 903998 00 X) looks at the history of simplicity, at obstacles to living simply in the world today as well as concentrating on the benefits of a simple lifestyle. I found it to be one of those books that you want to read quite slowly, stopping to think as you read rather than a sit down and read in one go sort of book.

I seem to be rushing around a lot at the moment, forever organising and fitting chores into every available moment so a slow read book should be just what I need.

eI loved this book also, and like you, struggle to achieve the balance between my ideals and my reality living with two children and a husband who doesn't always 'get it'. We can but try!
