My favourite books list is rather long, and goes right back to primary school days. My P4 teacher Mrs Mayes wrote on my school report, ‘ Viola is an avid reader’. I’ve always wished I had kept all my copies of Nancy Drew mysteries, Secret Seven and Famous Five adventures.
I’m also in the process of converting all my own published books to Kindle, so that I can carry them all in my handbag everywhere I go.
That’s why the New Kindle Oasis E-reader, Waterproof, 7″ High-Resolution Display (300 ppi), Built-In Audible, 8 GB Wi-Fi is at the top of my wish list right now.
It has an adaptive front light that automatically adjusts the brightness of the display based on your surroundings—whether you’re in a dimly-lit room or outside in the sun—and can be fine-tuned even further based on personal preferences. I’ll be able to read perfectly on the bus on the way home in dark evenings.
It not only store books, but also audio books, emails and documents.
I’m so inspired by all the possibilities the new Kindle holds out, that I’ve decided to make my new book The Sensitive Human available on the Kindle Unlimited library for monthly subscribers, as soon as the book has been converted to Kindle. It will also be available to buy for non-subscribers.
Back to that book list. I’d better divide it up into categories, as my favourite books are quite a diverse list. I’ll try and find time to add one every day, so keep an eye out for updates.
Healthy Living Books
The new revised paperback The Nature Doctor is available on Kindle now too. It’s a bulky book so it’s brilliant that it can now be taken with you everywhere you go as an e-book. I do still like the look of the big paperback sitting on my shelf too though.
Zuzana’s self-healing story reminds me a little of my own journey over the last year in The Sensitive Human. We seem to share a lot of common beliefs – maybe that’s why I like this book so much. The Sweet Spud is one of the few healthy eating cookery books I’ve ever looked at and wanted to make every single recipe inside. The Bombay Potatoes recipe is just gorgeous. I downloaded this to Amazon’s Kindle Reader for PC, and it’s one of the books that will be staying on it.
I love this book. I met Jan years ago at the Lakeland Bakery in Enniskillen, and attended one of his health lectures when I was a teenager.
The title says it all. I’ve taken strength and inspiration from Fiona’s words many times since I bought this book. Fiona is originally from Lurgan in Northern Ireland. She has established herself as one of the top life coaches in the UK and Europe over the last couple of decades.
