The Art of Empathy: A Complete Guide to Life's Most Essential Skill: Karla McLaren: 9781622030613: Amazon.com: Books

My favorite book <3 Little, Big by John Crowley: A family saga anchored on the edge of a forest that's more than it seems. A unique take on magical realism. The first half was super hard for me—the prose is beautiful, but also so calming I had trouble reading more than 20 pages a night. The last half, though, is truly lovely. One of those books that makes you feel really small and really huge in the universe, all at once.

The Name of the Wind by Patrick Rothfuss. Enjoyable and hefty fantasy novel, though I found the language a little too florid at times. The narrator has an enticing swagger about him. Typical fantasy plot, but well timed with a rich universe. Starting number 2 in the series soon!

Mindsight: The New Science of Personal Transformation by Daniel J. Siegel,http://www.amazon.com/dp/0553386395/ref=cm_sw_r_pi_dp_R9vCsb0HE8DT8R21
