I've Been Reading Again 4

ReThink Your Life: A Unique Diet to Renew Your Mind (Total Quality Life)
by Stan Toler

Pastor Stan was my parents' pastor for many years. He was also ordained first in the same denomination that ordained my maternal grandfather. That denomination eventually merged into the Nazarene church.

Pastor Stan brought me, my brother, and my son an autographed copy of his latest book the other day and I finished it just a few days ago.

It is an intriguing idea for a book - putting your mind on a diet.

He breaks it down into 4 stages: detox, realignment, reinforcement, and perseverance. Except for the last stage each one is designed to take a week and at the end of the section is a list of things to help one apply that particular chapter.

The Snowball: Warren Buffett and the Business of Life
by Alice Schroeder
A fascinating book about a fascinating man. I really knew almost nothing about Mr. Buffett and was quite surprised.
Bones: An Alex Delaware Novel
by Jonathan Kellerman
This is a really excellent book. I was as pleased with this effort as I was with the very first Alex Delaware novel I ever read way back when.
I have several other titles underway as usual but since I haven't finished them I decided to omit them from this post.

You sure do a lot of reading. That first book sounds very interesting. Heck the rest of my body is on a diet, so why not my mind too. :)
