I’ve read my whole life, everything, all the time.  I love books.  I’m addicted to used bookstores.  When I’m in someone else’s space I don’t look in their drawers.  I look at their bookshelves.  Because my reading is eclectic and voluminous, I’ve divided this list into categories for easier browsing.  I’ll update regularly, so check back often!


The Bitch, the Crone and the Harlot by Susan Schachterle. My copy of this came out of a used bookstore.  The title made me smile, so I took it home and read it.  Now it’s bristling with Post-It tabs and Bookdarts and I wouldn’t be without it.  A wonderful book about reclaiming female power in middle age.

Being Wrong by Kathryn Schulz. Prepare to be tickled, challenged and provoked.  What if…we’re wrong?

Home Sanctuary by Nicole Marcelis. A book about making a home that nurtures you, containing an exercise for creating balance in your life.

Getting Real by Susan Campbell, Ph.D. Living authentically.
