Am I Mythical?

I hope everyone had an amazing Christmas and that your new year has started off great! While I enjoyed my break, I’m glad to be back to my routine, which makes me more productive. I will say that I did check quite a few things off my to-do list during the break, including reading several books. I have been on a book buying binge for the last few months which is ridiculous because I already have more books than one human could read in a lifetime but naturally I don’t read those books. No, I buy more to clutter my nightstand and bookshelves and drawers and closets. (I might have a problem!) Over the next few weeks, I’m sure I will review some of these books for you because truthfully my reading taste is wide ranging and strange so you might just find something you like.
The first book I want to discuss is The Book of Mythicality: A Field Guide to Curiosity, Creativity, and Tomfoolery by Rhett McLaughlin and Link Neal. First, the title alone should grab your attention! Curiosity, creativity and tomfoolery should not be things you lose as you become an adult. Second, the authors are sitting in a giant bowl of cereal and wearing atrocious suits on the cover…proof that they have taken their own advice. The fun and strange graphics continue throughout the project. Truthfully, the book looks/feels like one of those coffee table books you get to make yourself seem interesting but with a huge twist. Talk about a conversation starter with your guests!
Now, if you don’t know Rhett and Link you are missing out. They are best known as the co-hosts of the YouTube series Good Mythical Morning though they have about a billion other projects including this book. They have also been best friends since 1st grade which really adds to the amazingness (or mythicality) of this book, because of this you’ll find that the Book of Mythicality plays out as a biography, autobiography, self-help book, diary, photo album and more.
The book is just as silly as it is heartfelt and just as absurd as it is relatable. Each chapter represents a “badge” to earn…think the scouts and since it is so relatable I thought these chapters would be a great focus for my section of the blog, Crowning Commentary, for the next few entries. Some of these entries will be reflective but truthfully, some of the chapters really challenged me to step out of my comfort zone or to put more intention into my daily life.
So, if you’re interested in this book or Rhett and Link check out their info below and please check out Crowning Commentary for even more mythicality!
