This week I got a copy of Mindstore to read.
I love self-help books. There, I said it. Is it just me?
When I found my dad’s tattered copy of Norman Vincent Peale’s (gets up off sofa to check title) “The Power of Positive Thinking”, I get this from somewhere.
My dad was Mister Self-Improvement when he was positive. He joined Toastmasters in his seventies and got a computer. I miss him.
A Map of the World. by Jane Hamilton
I took this book on holiday with me and read it in the first three days, I should have brought more of my books with me.
It was pretty good, but then most Oprah Club books are pretty readable.

1. The Little Friend. Donna Tartt
2. A Family Madness. Thomas Keneally.
3. The Other Boleyn Girl. Philippa Gregory
4. True History of the Kelly Gang. Peter Carey
5. Southern Style. Craig Mariner
6. The Quietzal Summer. Katie Hickman
7. A Map of the World. Jane Hamilton

9. Bury my heart at Wounded Knee. Dee Brown
10. Naked Lunch. William Burroughs
