The Four Agreements by don Miguel Ruiz

Jul 26, 2011 by

In The Four Agreements, don Miguel Ruiz sheds some light on self-limiting beliefs. Based on ancient Toltec wisdom, The Four Agreements offer a code of conduct that can transform lives. Ruiz explains the source of suffering as having begun with a collective dream that all people are born into. It is freedom from this dream that helps us take the first step to personal freedom. This is a great read and is spiritual in nature. Once I read it, all of what Ruiz teaches made sense.

Odd Thomas By Dean Koontz

Odd Thomas By Dean Koontz

I do read for pleasure too. One of my favorite books of all time is “Odd Thomas” by Dean Koontz. I have re-read it several times. As well as several others Koontz has written around the same character.

Odd Thomas, who narrates, is truly odd indeed.  At 20 years old, he works contentedly as a fry cook in a small fictional California town. But Odd has a talent; he sees and converses with ghosts, the lingering dead who have yet to pass on. Odd spends his free time compelled to help those ghosts as well as some of the living whom he tries to avoid.

Odd Thomas is a character that will capture your curiosity and your heart. He will also keep you coming back for more as he meets character after character of people just as odd as he himself is….and then there’s that whole Elvis thing….trust me it’s worth the read.

A People’s History of the United States: 1492 to Present by Howard Zinn

Jul 6, 2011 by

Since its original publication, “A People’s History of the United States” has been telling American history through the people’s eyes. Throwing out the official version of history Zinn tells history as it happened not as it was glorified by the politicians. A People’s History is the story of the United States as told from the point of view of America’s women, factory workers, African-Americans, Native Americans, the working poor, and immigrant laborers.

Zinn was a master at truth and could tell the history of America in a way that spoke to everyone. This is one of my favorite books.
