  1. I swiped this from Bookcrossing because it's so much fun----(here's a link: http://bookcrossing.com/forum/5/1158253/subj_The-Corrupted-Wish-Game) Each person makes a wish, and the person after them corrupts it (and at the same time makes a wish of their own)! (Stolen from the NaNoWriMo forums) Example: Person 1: I wish it was Christmas! Person 2: It is Christmas, but you've forgotten to buy gifts and everyone gives you the silent treatment the rest of the year. My Wish: I wish I didn't have to work tomorrow.
  2. The only book I've found helpful on this is Clear Your Clutter with Feng Shui (forgot the author) anyone else know of down-to-earth books on this subject?
  3. I'm almost wincing as I post, because I know not everyone likes this author--- however, I've found some terrific nuggets in this book in particular---like asking myself empowering questions, and regarding my darker emotions as action signals, and recognizing that I can control my mindframe. This book is--well, empowering. I don't watch Robbins on his infomercials so my take on him is based solely on his written work. has anyone else got an opinion on this? [/
  4. this book has helped me to take responsibility for my choices and to require that my children do so, too. Has anyone else read this book? I don't watch him on tv, so I don't know anything about that.....
  5. I read this book for the first time last March, and it's now among my top five favorites. One line in this book stays with me: "The best of us did not survive." Frankl illustrates how we humans are resilient and hungry for hope. At one point, simply the mental image of his wife smiling at him gave him hope, and I think that was my favorite part of the book because it made me appreciate the connections I have with certain precious people. Frankl's story helped me put my own suffering into context. Has anyone else read this?
  6. I first heard about THIS group from someone in Bookcrossing-- Has anyone else ever heard of the bookcrossing site? Oh, my gosh---it dovetails neatly into this one---it's about setting books free--making the world a library, basically. I've been a member for a few months, and have already read several books I wouldn't have known about otherwise. I'm tickled to find a way of tracking where my books go---I've given books away for as long as I can remember----and now I have a chance to peek in on their journeys. here, if it's not too forward of me: http://bookcrossing.com/mybookshelf/abbynormal92243 I have a tutorial link midway down the page that you can check out. I occasionally trade with others on the site, but usually I just leave my books in odd places all over town. Please PM me if you have any questions. It's all free, and totally addictive.
  7. I've discovered a new author to love! His heroine is tough and enterprising and thinks fast on her feet, and the characters in this book are WONDERFUL-- Rachel (heroine) has a best friend named Benny, who is gluttonous and crude her secretary started as a man, but is about to have a sex-change operation, and dresses in drag-- I can't wait to read the rest of Kahn's series. anyone else read him?
  8. Here's how it works: I'll name a book, along with its author. The next person takes a word from the title and names another title and author, then the next person takes a word from her title and does the same ---forever and ever I'll start with Hero With a Thousand Faces by Joseph Campbell.
  9. Has anyone else read this? What was your take on it? I identified very strongly with the heroine --with those feelings of abandonment and unsurety--not in my adult relationships; from my childhood. This book just resonated in me. What about you?
  10. yes, all his books are the same. My favorite is Angels & Demons, probably because it was my first taste. Da Vinci Code fell short, in my opinion. And I wonder how deeply he delved beyond --what was it? Holy Blood, Holy Grail?
