Books I'm Donating
I'm moving, and so I'm having to cull my books (SADFACE). Here are some of the books that are getting donated to the library.
- •The Ocean at the End of the LaneThere's no author I want to like more than Neil Gaiman, but I can't get into him. I always find myself 200 pages into a book, thinking, "what the hell are we doing here?" So I finished this book and it was fine, but I can't get through American Gods, Anansi Boys, The Graveyard Book. Am I missing something? Can you enlighten me?
- •The Right Brain Business PlanNot as right brained as I thought.
- •Chakra booksThese were boring. Read "Anatomy of the Spirit" by Caroline Myss instead if this is a topic that interests you
- •The Girl Who Circumnavigated Fairyland in a Ship of Her Own MakingSuch high hopes, such whimsy, recommended by people I really like, but it was too.... whimsical. I never got bought in to any characters or the plot.
- •QuietI'm not convinced this needed to be a book. I think t would have been more powerful as a TED talk or an in-depth newspaper article.
- •Various Financial booksAll fine, it's just time to let them go.
- •The AlchemistI think if this is the first book you ever read about personally mythology it's good, but otherwise this shoves positive thinking down your throat in a really obvious way. I like my personal power books a little less... basic.
- •Assorted relationship books(and yes, I know this carpet is gross. It's getting ripped up when I leave). David Deida is great in "The Way of the Superior Man" but he has a major editing issue in all his other books and they're not worth reading. Calling in the One is a great primer on resolving your own issues rather than searching for a partner to fix you.
