The Paris Wife: A Novel: Paula McLain: Love affair between two unforgettable people: Ernest Hemingway and his wife Hadley.....
The Paris Wife. The twist of the story is really worth reading.
Rebecca Smith, SEO editor The Book: The Paris Wife by Paula McLain "Most people turn to romance novels because they want to read about a couple that goes through hard times and then lives happily ever after. But, I have always been a fan of reading something that leaves a lasting impression. This book broke my heart, but in one of the most beautiful ways possible. The Paris Wife follows Ernest Hemingway and his first wife, Hadley Richardson, as newlyweds in Paris during the '20s. Their romance is colored by Hemingway's success and their eccentric band of cohorts: Gertrude Stein, Ezra Pound, F. Scott Fitzgerald, and Zelda Fitzgerald. While their love story is surrounded by high fashion and fun, the pair also faces financial stress, the expectations of success, alcoholism, and deception. Hemingway fans know that Ernest and Hadley didn't last forever, but this story of their love just might."The Paris Wife, $11.68, available at Amazon.

John Safran, God’ll Cut You Down (November 28) It’s quite the hook: a young, white Australian documentarian (Safran, who is big in Australia, and is in no way related to the Everything Is Illuminated author) went down to Mississippi to interview people for a documentary he was making on race. However, when one of his subjects, a white supremacist, is brutally murdered, Safran investigates the case and falls down the rabbit hole of Southern Gothic weirdness.

God’ll Cut You Down: The Tangled Tale of a White Supremacist, a Black Hustler, and How I Lost a Year in Mississippi, John Safran (November 28) A white Jewish Australian traveled to Mississippi to make a documentary on race. When he realizes that one of his interviewees was murdered in a brutal crime, he returns to Mississippi to see what the real story could be.

"You don't need to be a baseball fan to fall under this novel's spell, but THE ART OF FIELDING possesses all the pleasures that an aficionado cherishes in a great, classic game: odd and strangely satisfying symmetries, unforeseen swerves of fortune, and intimations of the delicate balance between individual will and destiny that play out on the field." Michiko Kakutani, The New York Times
January, 2012 Another great work from the best of 2011 lists with deeply developed literary themes. As an admittedly lifelong non-athlete, baseball is the only sport I even enjoy following or watching. But one doesn't have to like or even know much about the game to enjoy this book about interwoven lives and relationships at a small liberal arts college and its baseball team. I loved it. It made me cry.

The Book of Awakening, Mark Nepo: great daily reader. Deep, connection to Mark's inner life journey, oneness. Purchased December 2013.
The Book of Awakening: Having the Life You Want by Being Present to the Life You Have by Mark Nepo
A great way to start the day.....encourages mindfulness, wisdom, and a sense of life balance.
Nepo's writing style soothes the soul. Just a little daily blessing.
Having the life you want by being present to the life you have
This collection of essays, one for every day from January 1 through December 30, offers a poet's sensibility and sensuality and gives the reader Nepo's well-harvested wisdom. "Water reflects everything it encounters," Nepo writes in a May 5 essay. "This is so commonplace that we think water is blue, when in fact it has no color.... But the water, the glorious water everywhere, has taught me that we are more than what we reflect or love. This is the work of compassion: to embrace everything clearly without imposing who we are and without losing who we are." After each entry, Nepo offers a short list of suggestions or questions to help carry the essay into the day. There are many inspirational daybooks out there. What sets this one apart is the mature poet's voice rising from a seasoned soul. --Gail Hudson
Great daily inspirations.
