    I’m a big fan of Paulo Coelho! You will love this! He’s the first best-selling
    author to be distributing for free his works on his blog:

    Have a nice day!

    GREAT book my reading group is reading:
    Mistakes Were Made…(but not by me) by Tarvis and Aronson. A full view into self justification and blindness.

    I was going to recommend Eat Pray Love, but Arthur beat me to it. We have a copy you can borrow, if you like; I just finished it. 🙂
