“There is a great deal of difference between an eager man who wants to read a book and the tired man who wants a book to read.”
Living someone else’s reality sometimes is very relaxing and wonderful. We love to get lost in a good read. People will very often choose to mingle with particular authors or writers depending on mood, season or time of the year. When one feels depressed, they are most likely to grab a book or that article that will lighten up their mood, or (for the very few) make them sadder. This helps them reflect on their apparent state of mind.
There’s only but a few books we think you should ‘READ’ before you ‘DIE.’
- THE DAY I DIED- LORI RADER-DAY
Anna Winger can know people better than they know themselves with only a glance—at their handwriting. Hired out by companies wanting to land trustworthy employees and by the lovelorn hoping to find happiness, Anna likes to keep the real-life mess of other people at arm’s length and on paper. But when she is called to use her expertise on a note left behind at a murder scene in the small town she and her son have recently moved to, the crime gets under Anna’s skin and rips open her narrow life for all to see. To save her son—and herself—once and for all, Anna will face her every fear, her every mistake, and the past she thought she’d rewritten.
- HONOR AMONG THIEVES- JEFFREY ARCHER.
Spring 1994, Washington, D.C. – While the Clinton Administration grapples with its domestic policies, a sinister plot is being masterminded six thousand miles away in Baghdad. By using $100 million as bait and spinning a deadly web of corruption, forgery, and terror, Saddam Hussein seeks to embarrass the U.S. with the ultimate revenge: to steal a treasured historical document and then destroy it before the world’s media-on July 4, 1994.
As the countdown to Independence Day begins, two agents stand in the way of his nearly flawless plan: Scott Bradley, a rising star in the CIA who is desperate to prove his patriotism, and Hannah Kopec, the stunning Mossad operative who has already lost o much that she fears nothing and trusts no one. Their unrelenting quest to prevent what would undoubtedly be the most humiliating day in U.S. history takes them across four continents and climaxes in a dramatic, triple-twist ending.
- I KNOW WHY THE CAGED BIRD SINGS- MAYA ANGELOU.
Here is a book as joyous and painful, as mysterious and memorable, as childhood itself. I Know Why the Caged Bird Sings captures the longing of lonely children, the brute insult of bigotry, and the wonder of words that can make the world right. -Amazon.
- MEDITATIONS- MARCUS AURELIUS.
“You cannot quench understanding unless you put out the insights that compose it. But you can rekindle those at will, like glowing coals. I can control my thoughts as necessary; then how can I be troubled? What is outside my mind means nothing to it. Absorb that lesson and your feet stand firm. You can return to life. Look at things as you did before. And life returns.” -Marcus Aurelius
