5 Books I Enjoyed in 2010: Grace Thompson

Posted on December 15, 2010



The Alchemist – Paulo Coelho

Each of us has our own path to follow, an opportunity to create our own personal legend.  Everyone we meet comes into our lives for a reason.  Sometimes we get something we need from them, or they get it from us.








Creative Visualization – Shatki Gawain

This book was recommended to me.  It is a wonderful tool that teaches you to visualize yourself in your success – colors, tastes, sounds, feelings.  Incredible!  “So a man thinketh in his heart, so is he.”  Proverbs 23:7






The 5 Love Languages – Gary Chapman

What an eye-opening book.  You will not only learn what is important to you, but what is important to your partner.  It is rare that a book gives practical and immediate ways to improve your relationship.   Read it and smile.








The 7 Habits of Highly Effective People – Stephen R. Covey

I read this book many years ago and decided to read it again in 2010.  No matter what stage of life I am in, there is something I take away.  This time around, I am focused on Habit #7 – Sharpening the Saw.








The Cold Moon:  A Lincoln Rhyme Novel – Jeffery Deaver

Nothing beats a page-turning murder mystery.  Just the right amount of wind-down reading before bed.
