Don’t Throw Books Out, Donate Them To The Poor!

I see a lot of people through books out, when there is nothing wrong the books. I believe that instead of throwing them out the should give them to the poor children, who are in desperate need of books.

Notice that book on the picture, Best Ghost stories, I have that book. I bought it in Williamsburg, VA

THE GHOST OF SPIRIT BEAR by Ben Mikaelsen

I actually have this book, and it is a great book.

There are a lot of books available for teens today.  For a smart, discerning young adult, the range and quality of the work has never been better.  But I’m often dismayed by the lack of value (my judgment call here) a good portion of the popular literature offers.  At least, insofar as what sells best.  There are those books that entertain (and they should), and fill an afternoon, but don’t remain. Don’t challenge the teen, don’t teach the teen, don’t inspire the teen – in short, they’re fluff.  Like an ice cream sundae soon consumed and soon forgotten.  I know as parents, we’re just happy our kid is reading. There are so many who don’t.

That’s why when I find one of those quiet books, that don’t sell phenomenally well but offer something of depth for the soul, I want to highlight it. I read The Ghost of Spirit…

How This Book Came Into the World

Well, I hope that you are doing better. I know how you feel. It’s amazing when something happens to a person, it changes you in ways you never imagined right.

Several years ago I had a particularly bad year. My father died, my son was hospitalized, and I came face to face with my own health crisis. All in one year. My illness effectively took me out of the world and focused my attention inward. I returned to basics and found my interest in Buddhism waiting for me. Silent, I think, since at least my teenage years.

Listening to Geshe Sonam Rinchen’s patient lectures aided my understanding of Tibetan Buddhism. That along with my friendship with a young monk in India helped me to process and write, Into the Land of Snows.   The novel explores many of the themes I was exposed to as…

One Theme, Three Ways: Customizing iTheme2

This is a beautiful theme. Yosemite Park is beautiful place to visit.

The WordPress.com Blog

iTheme2 was originally conceived as a tech blog theme, paying homage to the sleek design of Apple websites. The three blogs we showcase here are proof of its remarkable versatility: not one of them covers technology.

Whether it’s the natural splendors on view on Yosemite Park Blog, the romance-heavy book reviews on Have Book Will Reador the cutting-edge beats swirling through webzine Electronic Rumors, these blogs are brimming each with their own quirky personality. All three harness the nifty features built into iTheme2 to their specific needs. Time to compare, contrast, and admire.
