New Year, Fresh Start


Aging as a Spiritual Practice: A Contemplative…
Lewis Richmond 256 pages | 2012
“We’re all doing it, so why not learn to make aging meaningful instead of just sucky? You don’t have to be a current AARP member to embrace this book, either; one or two gray hairs will do.”


168 Hours: You Have More Time Than You Think
Laura Vanderkam 272 pages | 2010
“If you don’t have the time, energy, or gumption for the good stuff in life, then you need this book. With 168 hours in every week, you CAN have time for your priorities.”


Younger Next Year
Chris Crowley & Henry S. Lodge
“It’s a modern classic because it works: if this book doesn’t inspire you to get your ass in gear, then nothing will. You can age backward no matter how decrepit you are right now.”


A Simple Act of Gratitude
John Kralik
“After a truly crappy year, John Kralik thought he might feel better if he wrote and sent a thank-you note every day for the next 365 days. Get out your notecards, folks.”


Your Money or Your Life
Vicki Robin & Joe Dominguez
“This is the tough-love, extreme-boot-camp slap in the face you just might need to get control of your finances and start living your life.”


Clutter Busting: Letting Go of What’s Holding…
Brooks Palmer
“There’s way more here than just a few tips about keeping your horizontal surfaces clear; you’ll figure out why you’re clinging to junk and learn to move past it.”


Getting Things Done
David Allen
“If you struggle and worry about the gazillion things you need to do, David Allen can help. One of our booksellers says she slept well for the first time in months when she started using his techniques.”


The Secret Garden
Frances Hodgson Burnett
“Yes, THAT Secret Garden. This novel for children is, in fact, the best self-help book ever written for adults. You’ll turn the last page and want to shout, ‘I can do ANYTHING!’ (Tip: do that part at home.)”


The Power of Kindness: The Unexpected Benefits…
Piero Ferucci
“There’s a leaf right there on the cover, as in ‘turn over a new leaf.’ This little gem of a book about the unexpected benefits of compassion will have you channeling the Dalai Lama in no time.”
