I haven't been reading like I use to. Back in our former city, I was a member of a bookclub (that I actually started) and that I actually missed a lot of. Good grief. However, it did push me to read regularly. After our dog passed in late summer, a neighbor suggested I read "The Art of Racing in the Rain." I would not suggest reading it immediately after such a loss. But, a few months later proved to me nice. It is not a self help book. But, it was lovely. It is narrated by the dog. Heart-wrenching, and funny at the same time. The dog describes what he sees and feels throughout its journey with its hooman. Then, the dog gets old. He wishes to go. He explains it in a loving manner. I was on a plane reading this. It brought tears. I have ordered two books that promise to be good. Older books. Has anyone read any of these? Lie Spotting and Life Code by Dr. Phil Can you recommend any other books...especially interested in either self help or fiction or biography with a powerful/helpful message. Thank you. Blessings for a happy and healthy New Year!
