Secret – Rhonda Byrne

The premise of the “Secret” is that everything that comes into our life, we have already imagined in our minds.  By keeping positive we bring good things to fruition. This book reflects my spiritual side.  I believe in tapping into the power of the universe.  There are no limits when you can crystalize your thinking.


Quiet – Susan Cain

This book highlights those introverts who have made great contributions to society – Rosa Parks, Chopin, Dr. Suess, Steve Wasniak – and that we need to provide good environments for all personality types to be valued. The book reshapes the perception that introverts are social misfits. I heard Susan Cain speak on TED talks before I read the book and as a self-declared introvert was delighted that our contribution can now be valued on par with the extroverts.


My Beloved World – Sonia Solomayer

Sonia Sotomayer never compromised her ideals for her ambition. She is the first Hispanic woman on the US supreme court and what an amazing story told in her own words. She is an inspiration to us all.


The Joy of Cooking – Rombauer & Becker

I love to cook and this is the bible. When I am trying a new recipe or need a refresher on the basics, I can always find the answer in here!
