Now i'm reading Creative Visualization by Shakti Gawain. I've been meaning to read it for years and now i wish i'd read it before! It's good. And makes you feel good, too!

Who said it had to be intellectual? My best friend used to call some of the books she liked to read "mind candy." LOL

I'm reading a good novel now, too. It was quite unexpected... just in the "free book" pile at the library, but i recommend it...

It's called "Obernewtyn" and is by Isobelle Carmody. It is a sci-fi story set in a post-nuclear-holocaust earth. It's not the setting that makes the book interesting, it's just GOOD, SOLID, WRITING! There is a girl who is an orphan in a society that reminds me a little of Salem when they did witch huntings, or perhaps Nazi Germany. She and her brother have been trying to hide the fact that she is telepathic... because in this society, anyone who is different (or simply accused) gets relegated to a work camp... if they are lucky.

What makes it interesting to me is the author is very good at revealing what suspicion does to an individual mind and a society, and how good companionship, trust, and being willing to be different is the remedy, but it sometimes takes great courage.

Yes, i heard The DaVinci Code is very good. I should take a look at it.

Emma, how is Angels & Demons coming? I take it, it's fiction?
