Best Nonfiction Book: Operating Instructions: A Journal of My Son’s First Year by Anne Lamott

Anything by Anne Lamott is a must-read. Just one suggestion: Do it on a day when you’re going slow, when you’re taking your time, when you’re just enjoying life.

A relevant quote from this book:My friend Bonnie’s kids went to a kindergarten with a sign over the front door that said, ‘Start out slow, and taper off.’ It’s so easy and natural to race around too much, letting days pass in a whirl of being busy and mildly irritated, getting fixed on solutions to things that turn out to have been just farts in the windstorm.”
