Cover ArtA path with heart : a guide through the perils and promises of spiritual life
by Kornfield, Jack
If you are troubled, tormented, or simply feel unfulfilled and empty, perhaps it is time to look at spiritual guides. And if you are looking for serenity (not fire and brimstone sermons), this book is for you. Jack Kornfield is non-judgmental and unassuming in his approach to the understanding of the spirit.   posted Mar 4, 2008 at 5:56PM

Cover ArtMythology
by Hamilton, Edith
Practically a sine-qua-non for mythology fans. Very educational, and very entertaining. You can pick the book and start reading from any page and still enjoy and learn.   posted Mar 4, 2008 at 5:38PM

Cover ArtThe Autobiography of Malcolm X
by Malcolm X
Very powerful!! Malcolm X bared his life story with no reservations and with defiance. He lashed out at "White America" and its self-serving laws and culture for oppressing and systematically diminishing blacks. Yet, his wrath was also directed at blacks for acquiescing in their own oppression. The book is still a shocker and a revelation to all!   posted Mar 4, 2008 at 5:05PM

Cover ArtEast of Eden
by John Steinbeck
Exquisitely written! A very moving and gut-wrenching story about a man and his family as they go through love, antipathy, despair, and almost total implosion. We learn about the power of love and forgiveness. Above all, we learn that nothing about life is predestined. We are free to choose our paths in life. Hope that is not too preachy!   posted Mar 4, 2008 at 4:30PM

Cover ArtLonesome Dove : a novel
by Larry McMurtry
A great book! Quintessentially American with humor, grit, and epic grandeur. You will be hooked from the beginning when you meet Gus berating his little pigs and the story takes off. Larry McMurtry’s characters (both male and female) are as real as can be and their travails become your travails in the torturous trek from dusty Lonesome Dove to Montana. I agree with Priscilla, this is an "essential read!"   posted Mar 3, 2008 at 2:08PM
