Win Friends & Influence People

Summary of How to Win Friends and Influence People by Dale Carnegie

by CompanionReads Summarywin friends.jpg

This was an awesome summary with all of the best points and anecdotes from the original book!  If you are like me and read with a pen in your hand, getting this companion guide might save you a lot of writer’s cramp!  This doesn’t replace the original manuscript.  It does, however, give you basically an outline version.  It’s a lot like CliffsNotes(r) in that you wouldn’t want to rely solely on the guide, but it does break it down for you in an easy-to-digest manner.

Yoga, meditation, & mandalas, oh my!!!


Yoga and meditation coloring book for adults

Inspiring and educational while also calming and relaxing.

I LOVE coloring books and I LOVE mandalas.  This one has added yoga poses throughout, with some illustrating not just the physical, but additional  tidbits like the chakras and Hindu images.

LOTS of fine detail in the majority of these images, so expert-level coloring may be required!

This coloring book has a wide selection of intricate designs allowing you hours of creative, stress-relieving coloring.

Some of the designs include more separated images, so if you choose to, you could mix and match the combinations of butterflies and flowers.

I am absolutely in love with this coloring book.  It captures the essence of the 80s hair, fashion and fads.  The pictures are busy, completely in step with the way things were back then.

My favorites are the hair band and the arcade scenes.

If you need me, I’ll be coloring and reliving my teenage memories…

Gift Wrap

Filled with whimsical vintage designs, this is a fun little stress-relieving adult coloring book.

I could use some of the smaller designs as gift tags, and I could definitely consider coloring a few of these several times, in different themes.

The girls in dresses and the butterfly pages are my favorite!

Soul Detox

soulThe Fourteen Day Soul Detox by Rita Stradling

This is the first part of a serial, covering days zero and one in Jamie’s new plan to get her life under control.

As I accompanied her through the events of those two days, I could feel the love she has for her challenged daughter, the anguish she has over several areas of her life, and the fear of a disturbing neighbor.

Well written with fascinating characters, I’m looking forward to the next release!!!
