Books...sigh...wonderful books..

Books are the greatest thing since sliced bread. I am mostly into non fiction books. Self help books are my favourite, I am always looking to learn how to better myself in any way. Health and fitness books are great learning tools for me as well. Even relationship books I dig because I know I have so much to learn.

The books I purchased yesterday were
How to win friends and Influence people by Dale Carnegie
Invisible acts of power:Channeling Grace in Your Everyday Life by Caroline Myss
and the book that I was destined to buy yesterday was
Romancing the Ordinary: A year of Simple Splendor by Sarah Ban Breathnach

For some reason I knew that book was going to find me yesterday. I had borrowed it from the library and started reading it and was very interested but noticed there is a chapter to read for every month of the year. I thought well I don't want to read it all at once then and I can't renew it for a whole year so I read the month of January and February and gave it back to the library. I wished to find that book to add to my own little library. I had a sudden urge to go buy myself a book and I always shop for books at the thrift store because I would be broke if I went to chapters every time I had a book urge. So I went to the thrift store and there it was staring me straight in the eye and jumping out at me.

I have three of Sarah Ban Breathnachs books and just adore her. My next book I wish will jump out at me is Think and Grow rich by Napoleon Hill. I have read it before but I want it for my own stash so I can read it any time I like. What a great book!!

Who is your favourite author and what is your all time favourite book?

Oh and thanks Bruce for the info on the walking shoes and special socks I will definately look into that once I get a paycheck, right now I am just working in running shoes because that is all I have.

  1. I, too am a lover of books, and I also get mine at thrift stores as well as the sale bin at my local library. I love John Steinbeck, I've read every book he wrote, and I'm a huge sci-fi fan, especially Isaac Asimov. I'll pretty much read anything.
