Book Shares Wanted


I love to share books.  Having a kindle means I can keep my favorites all in one spot.  I can reference quickly and easily when needed.  One of my staples is  You Can Heal Your Life by Louise Hay (click for more info on blog post) which I frequently search when a friend confides an ailment to me and wants more information about it.  The books written by Florence Scovel Shinn are also in my fingertip library to keep me humming along with my affirmations when distractions slide me away from the Law of Attraction.

There are little escape books which make me feel good to read, relax and rejuvenate.  There are long-time favorites like Gone With the Wind, The Secret Garden and various books written by friends who are authors.  There are the usual array of positive, inspiring books in there as well.

I love to read (and to write).  Usually I read before bedtime for a bit.  My tastes vary, but I have found my local library on my kindle to be a plethora of great reading material for free.  I like to learn when I read and I don’t mean manuals.  I usually have one or two books going at a time on my reading list.

Do you enjoy reading?  What type of books do you gravitate toward?  Would you please list a book or two that you find enjoyable or meaningful in the comments below?  Even an author that you like is appreciated!  I love to read all types of books so it doesn’t have to be spiritual, although I don’t enjoy reading horror-type books.   I’d love to add to my list of future reading material and I thought it would be wonderful if we could all share what we are reading or what we have read and enjoyed.  Thank you in advance for sharing!

Shine On!

  1. As soon as I saw the picture, the book that came to mind was “The Twenty Elephant Restaurant” – it’s out of print and hard to find, but it’s so much more than a children’s story.

  2. You are my kind of reader. I have the books you mentioned and more. I think in the spiritual genre, there are 150 on my shelves and more in my kindle. I have over 200 on writing, many on self improvement, sewing, crafts and some novels. I’ll try to come up with a short list for you but it will take a bit. The first book I ever recommend is “Breakfast with Buddha” by Rowland Merullo. It is a novel but the kind that never leaves you. If you read it, let me know what you think of it. I read a lot of “Chicken Soup for the Soul” books as they are chapter stories that I can read one each night before nodding off to sleep. I have more books to read than I have time and am always finding more that I want to read. 😦

  3. If you like cozy mysteries, I am currently working my way through Lorna Barrett’s Booktown Mystery series. If you enjoy romances with Native Americans I have read several Cassie Edwards novels. Hope this helps 🙂

  4. So now I know why we think so much alike. Reading. I read consistently all the time and am drawn toward books on the self help, improvement area. This year I have read some good ones.
    As a Man Thinketh- James Allen
    The Essential Collection- Neville Goddard
    The Four Agreements- Don Miguel Ruiz
    The Mastery of Love – Don Miguel Ruiz
    Awaken the Giant Within- Tony Robbins
    The Biology of Belief- Bruce H. Lipton
    Lying – Sam Harris
    The Alchemist- Paulo Coelho
    The Road Less Traveled- M. Scott Peck
    I recommend them all for different reasons. It was actually reading books like this that changed my life. 🙂

    • Jonathan, I have read 4 from the above list already! Thank you for giving me such a wonderful list to choose from when I need a new book! Titles, book covers and recommendations intrigue me and I seem to have a book find me when it’s best for me to read it. Does that happen to you too? P.S. LOVE your list!
