Creative Visualization: Use the Power of Your Imagination To Create What You Want in Your Life by Shakti Gawain
Creative Visualization: Use the Power of Your Imagination To Create What You Want in Your Life

Shannon Bodenstein, September 27, 2011

Decades before THE SECRET became huge, Shakti Gawain put out this slim volume. While the techniques in it were not new, she described them in a concise way and gave simple techniques for putting them to use. A great read for anyone who wants to put the Law of Attraction into practice quickly.

This collection of essays will be a total delight to anyone who loves books. Fadiman rights in a style that is both erudite and self-deprecating. Her words touch on everything from the love of a fountain pen to Antarctic expeditions. A great read!

Parnassus on Wheels (Dodo Press) by Christopher Morley
Parnassus on Wheels (Dodo Press)

Shannon Bodenstein, September 23, 2011

A surprisingly fun and engaging little read. Perhaps the enjoyment has as much to do with the idea of taking to the open road with nothing but you and a cart full of books than anything else. Funny, witty, and wildly adventurous, with a dash of romance thrown in for good measure.

Harriet the Spy by Louise Fitzhugh
Harriet the Spy

Shannon Bodenstein, September 22, 2011

A classic that I first read at age 11 and have read countless times since, even as an adult with a 12 year old of my own. With the experience and knowledge of an adult, I read this book in a different way. I see Harriet as a bit of a groundbreaking for 1965 children's literature. There's nothing lady-like or frothy about Harriet. She's butch and independent and confident and has dreams and ambitions of her own. I often wonder what Harriet would be like as a 50-something adult today. A great read!
