Books for Life
I am not the best reader I know by a long shot.

That's one of the reasons I have compiled
this list of must read books because
if I can get through a book then anyone can!

and...because life is can
be an uphill struggle it helps when there
is something thoughtful that can
change that experience
even if only in a small way.

I offer this selection of books I really think
anyone might enjoy reading at least once
in their lives whether everything's
going great or not...

Chronicles Volume One
by Bob Dylan
It's an autobography but not in the way you'd know one. Filled with rich details that only Bob Dylan would know and be able to relate in his own inimitable way. Totally engrossing and wondrous.

Excuse Me, Your Life is Waiting -
The astonishing power of positve feelings
by Lynn Grabhorn
Easy to read and personalble, this book offers the tools to trade
in your old habits for a fresh attitude utilising the power of positivity and drawing on that positivity to create a truly happy life
.

His Dark Materials trilogy:
Northern Lights, The Subtle Knife
and The Amber Spyglass

by Philip Pullman
An absolutely riveting journey created by this wonderful author.

The Art of Happiness: A Handbook for Living
by HH Dalai Lama & Howard C. Cutler
It's really hard to say something about anything or anyone
when it makes such a big imapct on you. It tends to come off as
sort of sappy and ultra cringe factoresque. So, all I'll say is
it helps a great deal and you'll just have to find out for yourself
how important this book might possibly be for you.

You Can Heal Your Life
by Louise Hay
I once had an acupuncturist by the name of Penny
who told me to go out and buy this book. She had been using
affirmations from it which she inscribed and personalised for me in
beautiful italic writing on indvidual cards which. I still have them
and the book.
