why no novels?

kimberly wilson said...

great question. i'm only a non-fiction reader so i can't speak to the loads of fabulous novels out there. suggestions?

pollyhyper said...

Great book suggestions!
May I also highly recommend "How Yoga Works" by Michael Roach & Christine McNally, as well as "Awakening the Spine" by Vanda Scaravelli?

I love so many of the books you've listed! I also wanted to recommend any of the books by Victoria Moran. She writes about creating a "charmed life" through such things as yoga, healthy and conscious eating, tea, journaling, meditation, a positive attitude, etc.

Hi! I so love your podcasts! I just got my Ipod last week, and have been glued to it listening to all of your casts. Love your work!

I would love to recommend a great relationship book by Marianne Williamson, called Enchanted Love. I give it to all of my girlfriends!

I recently picked up the book "You Can Do It! The Merit Badge Handbook for Grown-up Girls". It's the Girl Scout Handbook all grown up. The author/idea woman behind the book was on United Flight 93, the book was finished by her sisters, which I found completely touching.
