Healing Society: A Prescription for Global Enlightenment (Walsch Book)
GENRE : Self Help
The world is in political, religious, economic, and ecological crises of our own making. We need a spiritual awakening. This would transform our world: Children wouldn’t starve, women wouldn’t be brutalized, and young men wouldn’t die in war.
But could such an awakening ever take place? Yes. Eastern traditions say that the energy called “gi” is the common bond directly connecting body, mind, and spirit. In “Healing Society,” Dr. Seung Heun Lee shows how we can use this energy to strengthen our spiritual bodies, to actually experience a direct connection to ultimate oneness. (The publisher)
Beezus and Ramona Movie Tie-in Edition (Ramona Quimby) (Harper Paperback)
GENRE : Fiction
Ramona Quimby is the youngest of all the famous characters in Mrs. Cleary’s wonderful Henry Huggins stories. She is also far and away the most deadly. Readers of the earlier books will remember that Ramona has always been a menace to Beezus, her older sister, to Henry, and to his dog Ribsy. It is not that Ramona deliberately sets out to make trouble for other people.
In this book, Ramona goes from strength to strength, winding up inviting her entire kindergarten class to a party at her home without mentioning it to her mother.
The riot that ensues is probably the most hilarious episode in this extremely funny book, which proves that Cleary’s imagination is almost as lively as Ramona’s. (The publisher)

On Writing, 10th Anniversary Edition: A Memoir of the Craft
GENRE : Memoir
In 1981 Stephen King penned “Danse Macabre,” a thoughtful analysis of the horror genre.
Now he is treating his vast readership to another glimpse into the intellect that spawns his astoundingly imaginative works. This volume, slim by King standards, manages to cover his life from early childhood through the aftermath of the 1999 accident that nearly killed him. Along the way, King touts the writing philosophies of William Strunk and Ernest Hemingway, advocates a healthy appetite for reading, expounds upon the subject of grammar, critiques popular writers, and offers the reader a chance to try out his theories. But most important, we who climb aboard for this ride with the master spend a few pleasant hours under the impression that we know what it’s like to think like Stephen King. (Library Journal)
