I read a couple of books this week, one was 'The Traveler's Gift', by Andy Andrews. It's very good, but it does have some Christian overtones (in case that offends you). It's basically about the 7 principles of success and never giving up. Once you finish, they ask you to read each principle in the morning and at night for 21 days. I'll let you know if I'm changed...in 7 months.

The second is 'The Noticer', also by Andy Andrews. This one was life changing. It's about perspective - how a shift in your perspective can change the very essence, condition, of a situation. It was amazing. Told in heart warming short stories woven together by the same endearing main character...I cried the whole way through - most of it on a plane next to a stranger. It's not very often that I find a book that has a great message, wonderful characters, and most importantly, at least one thing that every single person can relate to.

I actually referenced it in conversations several times over the weekend.

Anyways...I'm looking to start a new book, but I want to keep with the religious/spiritual/inspirational fiction theme, so if anyone has any suggestions I would appreciate it.

Thanks for the suggestions. They sound like they are right down my alley! I am reading the new Dan Brown book right now and am having trouble putting it down.
I don't just believe in miracles, I rely on them!

I loved it as well. I was actually thinking of trying to mail my copy to the Mom of the Somer Thompson in Florida....you just never know how it would be taken though, and I wouldnt want to upset her any more than she already is.

I guess I am the only one who usually reads medical books? Currently I am reading "The Medical Detectives" by Berton Roueche'. It has several stories of unusual illnesses, rare diseases, etc. and how the culprit to each was found.

Not a religious book but I read about 25 books this summer and my favorite was "The Help". I'll have to add your suggestions to my list. I have a stack of about 12 books a local librarian has given me to read but I am having trouble finding the time to get to them and still keep up with what the kids are reading.

Try "The Brain That Changes Itself"... fascinating. wink.gif

I am completely facinated by psychology and psychological conditions - but I can read or watch anything that involves harm to children. I'm sure that there's all kinds of "reasons" that she did it, but I don't want to hear about it. It makes me furious that they never held her husband responsible as he was clearly an accessory - or at minimum, guilty of child endangerment. Make my blood boil, really.

I'm gonna check out your recommendations, too, GEAgirl. I'm reading The Emperor's Children right now, which is the STUPIDEST book I've ever read in my life, so I need something refreshing.

Well, The murder and the trail are pretty graphically described in this book. The author really doesn't hold any thing back & it damn near reads like a horror novel. Not for the weak. Seriously.

Maybe I'm not asking the right question...does it read like:

And then andrea took her 7 year old, as he was begging for his life, and pushed his face under the water. He thrashed and fought for his life, screaming and asking his mother why she would hurt him. Hhis 45lb body eventually succumbed to the water filling his lungs and rested near his 2 year old sister, already lifeless in the luke warm bath water.

Cause this crap times 7 or 5 or however many kids she killed will kill me. I would, however, LOVE to read about her psychological stuff.

Found "The Shack" to be quite thought provoking, nothing like I thought it would be.
