Books have always been a holiday for me.   A moment in the middle of a busy day, to have a change of venue and attitude.   These are the books I have been holidaying with since 21/11/2012.  They comforted me, caressed me and continued my eternal quest for love, learning and laughter.   Contact me for my personal review.   The authors are listed alphabetically by last name….not the books in the order they were read.

The inner dreamscape

is appealing

When the temperature

is falling and revealing

 I would rather read a book

In  my warm and cozy nook.

 I remember many cold cold days

when I did not have the luxury to say……

I would rather read my book

in my warm and cozy nook.

Guest author Carl DeVilbiss shares link and review of his books

“Practical Wisdom for Loss and Renewal”

“Author Carl DeVilbiss shares deep practical wisdom in this wonderful book. It’s easy-to-access and understand, full of apt anecdotes and personal stories. I like how the book is set up. He addresses a range of topics which anyone experiencing loss of any kind will find helpful and relevant. It unfolds well when read from start to finish, yet each topic stands alone and the reader may easily navigate as s/he wishes. The theme of learning more productive and cooperative ways to traverse the journey of loss and renewal is beautifully expressed in the exploration of each topic. The writing is spare and clear, as one might expect from a Naval Engineer and business consultant. And it’s also hopeful and wise, as one might expect from well, Yoda. Highly recommended.”
