I love to listen the books with a narrator that keeps my attention. I also love to read the book too if it's really good. Audible you have made long car rides more interesting!

    "How can I help others grow and transform if I haven’t done it myself...?" Cyndi Lee asks in the opening pages of her memoir, May I Be Happy, where she makes a surprising revelation. In spite of her success in physically demanding professions - dancer, choreographer, and yoga teacher - Lee was caught in a lifelong cycle of repetitive self-judgment about her body, which was infecting her closest relationships - including her relationship with herself.

    Would you listen to May I Be Happy again? Why?

    Yes, women (at any age) would find humor and various levels of connection to the author's thoughts, experiences and challenges as a woman with different roles in life...including try to love herself


    What was one of the most memorable moments of May I Be Happy?

    When she watch herself years back on a video teaching yoga and thinking about all the negative body images she had at the time of the recording. Looking back now she explains how amazing the person she sees that looks beautiful and how silly she would be to think so negatively.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    her meeting with the meditation teacher and discussing forgiveness. Cindi Lee gave her a face that I know so well when not wanting to easily forgive...just yet.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    Her relationship with her husband. Mixed emotions about that for myself.


    Any additional comments?

    If you are a woman with endless body, diet, negative thought patterns about self AND/OR you are in a profession that represents the complete opposite, this book with bring humor, light and peace to the contradiction. I am glad I listened (and read) the book. Yes, I went back to actually read it!

    Louisa Clark is an ordinary girl living an exceedingly ordinary life - steady boyfriend, close family - who has never been farther afield than her tiny village. She takes a badly needed job working for ex-Master of the Universe Will Traynor, who is wheelchair bound after an accident. Will has always lived a huge life - big deals, extreme sports, worldwide travel - and now he's pretty sure he cannot live the way he is. Will is acerbic, moody, bossy - but Lou refuses to treat him with kid gloves, and soon his happiness means more to her than she expected.

    A winner of the National Book Award, The Moviegoer established Walker Percy as an insightful and grimly humorous storyteller. It is the tale of Binx Bolling, a small-time stockbroker who lives quietly in suburban New Orleans, pursuing an interest in the movies, affairs with his secretaries, and living out his days. But soon he finds himself on a "search" for something more important, some spiritual truth to anchor him.

    This book wasn’t for you, but who do you think might enjoy it more?

    appropriate for someone studying southern lit


    What was most disappointing about Walker Percy’s story?

    the lack of attention grabbing plot...too much babbling


    What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?

    frustration


    Any additional comments?

    the ending brought a nice bow to the storyline but not the point of forgiving the lack of storyline.

    Gideon Cross: As beautiful and flawless on the outside as he was damaged and tormented on the inside. He was a bright, scorching flame that singed me with the darkest of pleasures. I couldn’t stay away. I didn’t want to. He was my addiction…my every desire…mine. My past was as violent as his, and I was just as broken. We’d never work. It was too hard, too painful…except when it was perfect. Those moments when the driving hunger and desperate love were the most exquisite insanity. We were bound by our need. And our passion would take us beyond our limits to the sweetest, sharpest edge of obsession.…
