Eight Gifts That Don't Cost a Centby Steve GoodierThis simple checklist can help measure how you are nurturing your relationships. The author of these thoughts is unknown, but deeply appreciated.The Gift of ListeningBut you must really listen. Don't interrupt, don't daydream, don't plan your response. Just listen.The Gift of AffectionBe generous with appropriate hugs, kisses, pats on the back, and handholds. Let these small actions demonstrate the love you have for family and friends.The Gift of LaughterClip cartoons. Share articles and funny stories. Your gift will say, "I love to laugh with you."The Gift of SolitudeThere are times when we want nothing better than to be left alone. Be sensitive to those times and give the gift of solitude to others.The Gift of a FavorEvery day, go out of your way to do something kind.The Gift of a Written NoteIt can be a simple, "Thanks for the help," note or a full sonnet. A brief, handwritten note may be remembered for a lifetime.The Gift of a ComplimentA simple and sincere, "You look great in red," "You did a super job," or "That was a wonderful meal," can make someone's day.The Gift of a Cheerful DispositionThe easiest way to feel good is to extend a kind word to someone.These are eight important ways we can contribute toward whole and healthy relationships. They cost nothing, yet they may well be the most valuable gifts we can ever offer another.
Hi Katie,Thanks. I am reading Olive Kitterage. It is really insightful. Also, I finishedThe Thirteenth Tale and gave it to Beth. It was a great story and mystery.Jeannie
Outliers must be very popular. I added it to my holds list at the library (along with the other 2) but am number 466 in the holds queue. The other 2 are much more reasonable holds and I hope to have them sometime this summer.
Hi Katie, Thanks for the recommendation; I'll check it out. I was just thinking of you, too. I was reading a review of the book The Four Corners of the Sky by Michael Malone in this morning's Post and wondering if you'd heard anything about the book. It sounded like it might be a good summer read.
I am so glad you liked it. I read it again this past week as baseball season was opening. I just got through the Historian. It completely freaked me out. Just to get over it, I am reading some junk for a couple of weeks, but I am looking for something new. Anything good you recommend? Maybe we could get together for tea or coffee? I can do a morning before my school if you are available. m
Also, I saw you read March and gave it three starts. That author also wrote The Year of Wonder about an actual village in England that voluntary isolated itself during the Plague. Really well written and not as graphic as March. I recommend it. M
okay, I bought The Historian on the sale rack this past summer and can't quite bring myself to start it. It sounded fascinating when I picked it up and now it just sounds scary. Comfort, please.
I quite liked The Historian - enjoy!
hi ,i have just joined shelfari. i want help from you. i joined this site because i thought i can read the books online but it seems we have to buy books. can you please help me how can i read the books online. you can send me email to email@example.com,
Yep, "River of Doubt" was my kind of book. I really enjoyed it. Glad that you did too!
I noticed you have Gore Vidal's "Lincoln" on your shelf of books you plan to read. That book holds an amusing memory for David and I that goes back to before we were married. Remind me to tell you about it sometime. Cheers!
How are you getting on with The Historian - I'm about 8 chapters in and am loving it!
Katie - I visit your shelf now and again for book ideas. I just wish I had more time to read. I think I will try another one of your 5 star books, probably "Book Thief". My mom strongly recommended "Water for Elephants". Marlo is enjoying Anna's big girl clothes. I hope you'all are well. Warm regards, Krista
"Under the Banner of Heaven" is another really good Krakauer book.
Right after I sent you that note, "The Book Thief" clicked with me and I couldn't put it down. It is indeed a very good book.
I'm having trouble getting through "The Book Thief" I may have to put it down and try again later. Cheers!
Glad you loved "Extremely Loud...". You know, I have "Book Thief" and for some reason didn't get through it. I'll give it another shot. I did not like "Atonement" that much either. Books I've read recently that I recommend: "Assassination Vacation" by Sarah Vowell (hilarious); and "The Thirteenth Tale: A Novel "By Diane Setterfield
Hey Katie,Just finished 'Atonement' by Ian McEwen, but didn't enjoy it...
Just finished "The Road". I can't say, "boy, I really enjoyed reading that book!" I did appreciate its power and I liked the hope at the end for faith and redemption. It would be an interesting discussion for a book group!
