A New Earth by Eckhart Tolle is an amazing writing; a transformation of oneself. This book is changing my life and my perception of life as well as my purpose for everything. If you feel it's that time in your life when you need a positive change, read it. It will certainly enlighten you.

If you have much, give of your wealth. If you have little, give of your heart. - Arab proverb

I'm reading Two Little Girls in Blue, by Mary Higgins Clark. It was the perfect choice for traveling (airplane, lay-overs, a little time now and then at night during my visit) since the chapters are so short. Plus I just love her books.

I'm re-reading LOOK AWAY BEULAH LAND it's an old book set in the time of the civil war.
Romance and murder and family stories.
In three words I can sum up everything I've learned about life: it goes on. Robert Frost

About to start the collected works of Frederic Bastiat. I just finished Empire by Orson Scott Card.

I am also going to read the Golden Compass series. I didn't like the movie but I heard the books were good. Just waiting for them to be delivered, I ordered them online a few weeks ago.

I'm half way through Naked by David Sedaris. He makes me giggle!

The Pillars of the Earth - Ken Follet

want to read "World Without End" wich is the follower, so I want to know what happened..
It's years ago I read the Pillars..
LiGruess cara ~~~ Life should NOT be a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in a well preserved body, but rather to skid in sideways, chocolate in one hand, wine in the other, totally worn out and screaming "WOO HOO what a ride!"

"Perfect Pairings," by Evan Goldstein....

not fiction. It's research for my thesis, but very interesting topic, if you're into wine with food.
Wine is the food that completes the meal.

a cheery little nonfiction number dealing with the science of forensics "Dead Reckoning: The New Science of Catching Killers" by Michael Baden, MD who was the former chief coroner of NY.
The only difference between a "cook" and a "Chef" is who cleans up the kitchen.
