  • 365 Thank Yous: The Year a Simple Act of Daily Gratitude Changed My Life

    One recent December, at age 53, John Kralik found his life at a terrible, frightening low: his law firm was failing; he was struggling through a second divorce; he was living in a tiny apartment where he froze in the winter and baked in the summer. Then, during a walk in the hills on New Year’s Day, John was struck by the belief that his life might become at least tolerable if, instead of focusing on what he didn’t have, he could find some way to be grateful for what he had.

    Even during the saddest parts of Mr. Kralik's story, I could not help but feel peaceful and happy at how this journey was unfolding. He inspired me to find at least one thing to express my gratitude over every day. Thank you, Mr. Kralik, for sharing your personal tale with the rest of the world. Having experienced such a personal low and finding a solution to it and sticking it out will make you a judge that will have empathy tempered with the justice handed down.

  • The Small House At Allington

    Story
    (127)

    Lily is the niece of Squire Dale, a morose and rather unimaginative old bachelor who lives at the 'Great House' at Allington. His sister-in-law lives at the adjacent 'Small House', with her two daughters Lily and Belle, and the action centres on the relations between the two houses and on the romantic entanglements of the two girls.

    "Don't waste money or credits on this one"

    Story

    I bought this book because this one and most of Mr. Trollope's other books had such high review ratings. But I think the author needs to look more to Jane Austen on the character of females (and even males) rather than the sappy, vapid way of life depicted by Victor Hugo. The reader does not help. While Mr. West has a very nice book, I don't think he is especially good for a character driven book. Please Mr. West, stick to nonfiction. Although I cannot entirely fault him. Whoever hired a man to read a insipid soap opera should find a new day job.

    All in all - save your bucks!
