Wild: From Lost to Found on the Pacific Crest Trail - Cheryl Strayed I truly don't have time or space to write about this book. To anyone who has "lost" and has to either find their way or rebuild their lives this book can be a tool, a resource. I am not a hiker as I have never had the opportunity but I am a runner and a cyclist. I "got" the concept and metaphor of the hike.
Data, A Love Story: How I Gamed Online Dating to Meet My Match - Amy Webb Informative and fun read.
Anyone But You - Jennifer Crusie I read this because of my love of basset hounds...
Between Heaven and Mirth: Why Joy, Humor, and Laughter Are at the Heart of the Spiritual Life - James Martin I love this writer, he is a Jesuit priest. For all those people that think there can not be humor in religion, please read this book. I have read several of his books and he is a very personable writer. I still have a list of books he has written that I want to read.
The Jesuit Guide to (Almost) Everything: A Spirituality for Real Life - James Martin Awesome experience, understanding my faith better and that "God" is truly in all things.

Waking up in America; How One Doctor Brings Hope to Those Who Need It Most

Waking Up in America - Pedro Jose Greer Jr., Liz Balmaseda Loved it! Great writing and lots of infor. Thank you for you dedication Dr.Greer!
True Colors - Kristin Hannah Really enjoyed.... Entertaining reading.
Sundays at Tiffany's - James Patterson, Gabrielle Charbonnet I read somewhere where Mr. Patterson said something about this book and that he was "knowing what women want"
To me this was a dime store novel. Maybe it is me, but it was just alright.
Comfort Food - Kate Jacobs Intelligent, well written story with positive message.
My Husband's Sweethearts - Bridget Asher Inttelligent, light read on a potentially painful subject. Funny!
My Sister's Keeper - Jodi Picoult I have not seen the movie but the ending was out of this world in the book. I have heard they changed the ending in the movie.
Love in the Time of Cholera - Gabriel García Márquez, Edith Grossman My 2nd Garcia-Marquez book. Not a fan but as I read his work, I think I understand him.
Then We Came to the End - Joshua Ferris If you like the show, THE OFFICE, you will like this book.
The Memory Keeper's Daughter - Kim Edwards Awesome book-- wasn't sure I'd enjoy it when I got it but it was wonderful. Excellently written.
Finding Manana: A Memoir of a Cuban Exodus - Mirta Ojito The Mariel boat experience of a young girl.... I eventually met the author and she is talented and personable woman.
