Day 173 - Saturday 21st June

"Turn off your mind, relax and float down stream, It is not dying, it is not dying
Lay down all thoughts, surrender to the void, It is shining, it is shining.
Yet you may see the meaning of within, It is being, it is being,
Love is all and love is everyone, It is knowing, it is knowing,
And ignorance and hate mourn the dead, It is believing, it is believing,
But listen to the colour of your dreams, It is not leaving, it is not leaving,
So play the game "Existence" to the end, Of the beginning, of the beginning"
- Tomorrow Never Knows , Lennon

Crikey this is a long prompt. I am going to just take a small part of it. The first thing that came into my head when I started reading it was from the first line abut turning off your mind, relax and float down stream.
I used to read about a book a week but since I got an IPod I tend to listen to that before I go to bed and so it seems that I hardly ever read anymore. However I bought a book to take on holiday and it reignited my love for books. I have almost finished it and bought my next one yesterday. I love to read chick lit books where I can just escape into the story and I don’t need to think about complicated plots or anything. My mum always complains about my reading choice but I love the fact that they are so easy to read and often so “unput downable”. The characters are always so life like and realistic and I can normally identify with them. I love to imagine what the characters look like and the scenery etc.
Some of my favourite authors are Sheila O’ Flanagan, Marian Keyes, Cathy Kelly, Sophie Kinsella, Chris Manby to name but a few
