Shelves of Books yet to read

JoAnn Arnold

I have a list, several inches long, of Books I need to read or have read or have booksmarks where I've read to. Books like "Tasty Vegan and Raw Recepies." "The China Study." (The most comprehensive study of nutrition ever conducted)."Second Spring." (Hundreds of natural secrets for women to revitalize and regenerate at any age.) There are a few more but I won't bother to list them. It's just that these are books for helping yourself. You don't read them for enjoyment. Still they are filled with mystery, one of which is this: "How to motivate myself to become a vegetarian or more intense, a Vegan when there are so many good things to eat that aren't included in these books. But I'm told that becoming a vegatarian will guarentee that I'll won't get cancer, again. This is my motivation.

Now, let's talk about reading another kind of book. The kind that doesn't tell you you can't have frozen yogart.

Let's talk about, "In the Company of Angels" by David Farland," It was an emotional, sad, brave book that brought tears, at times. I had to keep reading until I got to the end. It reminded me of my ancestors who gave up so much to pull a handcart mile after mile, day after day, month after month, surviving on faith. I recommend it to all of you.

Next, "Dragon Rider" by Cornelia Funke. I carried it with me everywhere I went so if I had a minute, I would spend it inside this book.

I know I've mentioned this one before, but just in case you didn't read my post that day, I want to mention it again. "A Train to Potevka" (true Story) by Mike Ramsdell. Oh, and what a story.

The only food I ate while reading these three books was dark chocolate.

Now, I think I'll go have lunch and a piece of dark chocolate for dessert.

Thank you for reading my post.
