Upcoming local-ish to me feast and book-signing...
Healthy Living Redefined: Live It. Share It. - Kate Horning

Might be able to talk the husband into a drive to Shaker Village, Pleasant Hill, for this dinner event: "...dining experience packed with the spring garden’s fresh veggies and herbs, along with mushrooms from Sheltowee Farm. Pick up new vegetarian recipes and a few cooking tips to try at home."


*shhh* it's for seed/farm to table eating and his beloved mushrooms -- mere coincidence there's a booksigning.  We're not vegetarians but love our culinary herbs and in season veggies.


And mere coincidence that the farmer's market and Whole Foods we'll visit a few more minutes away share a parking lot with Joseph Beth Booksellers ...

Cry Hope by Jan Veltman
Cry Hope: Positive Affirmations for Healthy Living - Jan Veltman

Cry Hope is a book of positive affirmations to read daily for the whole year. I thought the book had many good positive affirmations, but often felt that it didn't personally resonate with me.

Review of "Type II Diabetes: Your Healthy Living Guide : Tips, Techniques, and Practical Advice for Living Well With Diabetes" by American Diabetes Association
Type II Diabetes: Your Healthy Living Guide : Tips, Techniques, and Practical Advice for Living Well With Diabetes - American Diabetes Association

Moving review from amazon now that my kindle account is banned from posting after commenting on author review circles.


Review text:


What information this book does have is very well-organized, clearcut, easy to understand. Not very unique information nor in depth. A decent introductory book but not good to have if you already have or plan on buying other good books on diabetes. Too many of what would have been helpful sections spend a page or two basically telling you to consult your insurance, your dietician or other sources--I'd say more than 1/3 of the book doesn't really contain information.

Teach Yourself Beauty (Teach Yourself: Health & New Age)
Teach Yourself Beauty (Teach Yourself: Health & New Age) - Yvette Redmond Ana wants to be ugly. She has worked very hard at it, ever since she was twelve years old. Ever since the day a man complimented her on her beauty and she saw the look of hatred, jealousy, and anger in her mother's eyes. Now she doesn't bathe, doesn't trim her toenails, doesn't brush her hair, and eats nothing but pastries, bread, and moldy cheeses. Her nutrition has left her body pudgy and her face blemished. She is happy because she seems to have her mother's favor; however, staying ugly takes a lot of effort.

Queen Veda, Ana's mother, is a calculating ruler. Vanity is her main focus and she is never without her strange Beauty Consultant. He is a creepy little man that is always lurking around. His eyes turn red whenever he approves of the way the Queen looks. He mixes beauty potions and creates creams out of ingredients like spiders and leaves for the Queen to use to maintain her beautiful appearance. It is Queen Veda's jealousy that leads her to devise her most diabolical plan ever.

The Queen creates a new Academy for the best and brightest girls of the land. About fifty girls receive personal invitations to attend this prestigious academy and Pell, Ana's best friend, is one of them. Ana is heartbroken, thinking that she will lose her best friend forever. But on the advice of the Beauty Consultant, Queen Veda sends Ana to the Academy, too. Pell and Ana are thrilled to be attending a school that will provide rigorous academics, while at the same time being roommates. However, a sinister plot awaits all the girls that attend the Academy.

BEAUTY is a fast-paced fairy tale that pulls at your heartstrings. The reader will cheer for Ana when she finally realizes the truth about her mother. The sinister plan could have been more sinister and the ending a little more complex, but overall this is a fascinating story, definitely one for fans of queens, princesses, and fairy tales.

Refuge: An Unnatural History of Family and Place
Refuge: An Unnatural History of Family and Place - Terry Tempest Williams Terry Tempest Williams' words allow the reader to enter the world of the Great Salt Lake and envision all of it splendid winged creatures. Although I have never visited the Great Salt Lake, I have constructed it in my head while reading this book. It must be an awe-inspiring place. Mrs. Williams' struggle with her family's cancer draws the reader in even more; it is clear to see the passion in the author's words. And the way the author intertwines her stories on the Great Salt Lake with her family's trials and tribulations is spectacular. I would recommend this book to anyone interested in nature, someone who is dealing with loss or just has a compassion for mother nature and mankind. A very good read.
