Last month I asked my list subscribers to share some of their favorite books because I prefer to read something someone loved and recommends. Maybe you will find a favorite here too! THANK YOU to everyone who responded.
- Peter Frampton – “Sapiens – A Brief History of Humankind”, by Yuval Noah Harari. Gave a huge perspective on who we are.
- Wade Mullins – The three book series about Hunter Kincaid, a female border agent stationed in Texas and the Ronny Baca Series. All are by Billy Kring.
- Regina Clark – Diana Nyad’s book on her swim from Cuba to USA, “Find A Way”. I love it! Her story and her mantra, find a way, is truly inspirational.
- Nancy Leary – “The Accidental Empress” by Allison Pataki. It was fantastic (and so was her first book, “The Traitor’s Wife” about Benedict Arnold and his wife).
- Iris Weaver – “Cooked” by Michael Pollan. It was really thought provoking and very informative.
- Bernadette Welsh – “The Best of Nora Ephron”. It is a collection of her plays, published articles and blogs. It brought me back to the 1970’s women’s movement….and how painful yet funny failed relationships can be…..a fun book to have and read.
- Lorraine Sullivan – “The Samurai’s Garden” by Gail Tsukiyama – one of my all-time favorites.
- Betsey Melvin – “Inside the O’Briens” by Lisa Genova. She’s my favorite author. This story is about a family dealing with Huntington’s disease, and although I have not yet met anyone with Huntington’s, the story deals with many issues and emotions.
- Cathy Kallistros – “The Shack” by William Paul Young – about profound loss and one person’s journey of what they went through. Thought provoking, warm and sad.
