Title: The Places That Scare You

Comments: 
You do not have to be a practicing Buddhist to glean something from this book -- In fact, I think it contains wisdom and tools for living that all beings could benefit from.  I certainly wish I was taught this way of looking at the world when I was a child!  If you are feeling disenchanted with life or have trouble getting out of your own way, this is a fresh perspective for consideration. It has been an invaluable resource to me for many years.

Title: The Bone People

Comments: 
Have you ever read something that sticks with you for years and years? Keri Hulme's The Bone People is one of those stories for me.  I still think about the characters and the landscape to this day.  If you are interested in learning about different cultures and also like a mix of mystery, love, and family, this might be a good choice for you.  Be prepared for an experimental, yet beautiful reading experience that at times is akin to poetry and tells the tale from varying points of view.
