An Abundance of Riches

"Just the knowledge that a good book is waiting at the end of the day makes that day happier." -Kathleen Morris

Have you ever suffered from the "problem" of having too much good stuff to read? For my birthday tomorrow, my young daughters have each wrapped two books that I bought for myself at the book store. Simultaneously, I received an e-mail from my local library advising me that several books placed on hold are now ready for pickup (and a few more are "in transit" too). Not to mention that my in-laws sent several wrapped books, probably legal thrillers.

So now I find myself with so much waiting for me to dive into! Here's some of what's on deck:


Juicy Pens, Thirsty Paper: Gifting the World with Your Words and Stories, and Creating the Time and Energy to Actually Do It

by Sark

I own most of SARK's previous books. They always inspire my creativity.


Time to Write: Professional writers reveal how to fit writing into your busy life

by Kelly L Stone

I have read so many books about writing, and this looks like yet another good one. Annette also interviewed the author in a previous issue of WOW! Women on Writing.


Money, and the Law of Attraction: Learning to Attract Wealth, Health, and Happiness

by Esther Hicks

Other books by this author are very interesting and helpful.


Feel It Real!: A Guided Approach to Bringing the Law of Attraction into Your Life

by Denise Coates

I saw this one while on vacation, and it's getting lots of good reviews.

*When You Are Engulfed in Flames

by David Sedaris

The latest from a favorite humor writer.


What now?

by Ann Patchett

Bestselling author Ann Patchett's commencement address at Sarah Lawrence College.


Too Soon Old, Too Late Smart: Thirty True Things You Need to Know Now

by Gordon Livingston

Not sure where I heard about this one, but it looks good.


Old Friend from Far Away: The Practice of Writing Memoir

by Natalie Goldberg

I'll always check out Natalie Goldberg's stuff.

May you be blessed with some good reading too!

Old Friend from Far Away is a great book, I actually did an interview with Natalie here on WOW! She is a neat person to visit with. I met up with her at a writing conference a few years back. Love her work and her ideas. She has great energy to work from. Her books talk to you and really get you to think!

Happy Reading!
