The holiday season can be a frustrating time, especially for those of us who like to read. Don’t get me wrong I love spending time with my family during the holidays, watching sports, and hosting holiday parties but there is nothing like setting quite time aside to read a great book while munching on a fun snack paired with a glass of wine. I took a trip to Barnes & Noble to restock on a few good reads. You can easily download these reads as e-books but I still like the feeling of holding a book, turning the pages, and the stepping away from all things electronic. It’s a good feeling. Check out these Barnes & Nobles editors picks, ranging from spirituality, fashion, history and who doesn’t love a good thrilling romance novel!
In her latest book, The Universe Has Your Back, New York Times best-selling author Gabrielle Bernstein teaches readers how to transform their fear into faith in order to live a divinely guided life. Each story and lesson in the book guides readers to release the blocks to what they most long for: happiness, security and clear direction.
Gabrielle says, “My commitment with this book is to wake up as many people as possible to their connection to faith and joy. In that connection, we can be guided to our true purpose: to be love and spread love. These words can no longer be cute buzz phrases that we merely post on social media. Rather, these words must be our mission. The happiness, safety, and security we long for lies in our commitment to love. ”
The Other Wes Moore: One Name, Two Fates. Two kids named Wes Moore were born blocks apart within a year of each other. Both grew up fatherless in similar Baltimore neighborhoods and had difficult childhoods; both hung out on street corners with their crews; both ran into trouble with the police. How, then, did one grow up to be a Rhodes Scholar, decorated veteran, White House Fellow, and business leader, while the other ended up a convicted murderer serving a life sentence? Wes Moore, the author of this fascinating book, sets out to answer this profound question. In alternating narratives that take readers from heart-wrenching losses to moments of surprising redemption, The Other Wes Moore tells the story of a generation of boys trying to find their way in a hostile world.
