About meI'm a married 50 something female and I'll read just about anything that stays still long enough for me to find my reading glasses. Interests du jour usually drive my reading but perennial themes are psychology/neuroscience (I have a BS in that field), homemaking (I'm skilled in just about every fiber art, love to cook, hate to clean) and health. My fiction tastes span the gamut and while I try to keep up with the major book awards/prizes I am more of a reader than eruditely literary (which is probably an incorrect phrase but that proves my point!).

About my libraryMy mishmash of a library reflects my interests - and yes I own all these books unless otherwise designated. I love books, in case you can't tell.
ANCORA IMPARO! I'm still learning.

Thank you so much for the nice welcome. I am enjoying my retirement and my four grand babies. Looking forward to more time to read!

buchowl--- Hello! Thanks for your reviews of "The Librarian's Guide To Negotiation" & "You Are Your Own Gym" , which prompted me to put both books on my "Wishlist". Good luck getting all your books unpacked, sorted, & in use! All The Best, ---"j.a.lesen"
I do address that topic, yes. One of the students I followed was a gamer who dealt with suicidal feelings because he felt so... detached from everyone else. (He was an underachiever as well.) Interesting that you mentioned "normal." I wrote an essay in the book about parents and "normality." Essentially, your attitude is the healthiest. There is no such thing as normal! And I demand that schools stop trying to "normalize" outsiders - for so many reasons. Sounds like your nerdlings are lucky to have a parent like you.
Hi there, I'm excited, too : ) I hope it gets the message out that 1)nerdlings are fantastic and 2)schools/communities could do a better job of nurturing them. How old is your nerdling?
Thanks, Beate!

I'm glad you liked the review of Please Stop Laughing at Me. I almost didn't finish reading it, but now I'm glad I did.

I'm happy that bullying is being addressed these days in school. All people (parent, teacher, child) who deal with bullying in any form need some insight into what it really is and the harm it can do.

Regards from up north here in Rockville, Maryland! :)

You can see my Remote Viewing books by going to my tags and clicking on the 'remote viewing' tag. I've taken several classes in remote viewing and proved to myself that it works. I can send my notes if you are interested. I also have some videos by Dames. You can probably see some interesting videos on youtube with search terms like "ed dames" or "remote view"
Oh, I see you have Supernatural by Graham Hancock also. That was a really fascinating book. This whole idea of being able to perceive alternate realities fascinates me. Are they subjective or objective realities?
Hey, WE are still learning. Saw your comment on my page about common interests. Thanks for the tip for Power Up Your Brain - The Neuroscience of Enlightenment. I just bought the Kindle edition and now have it on my iPhone.

Have you read any books on remote viewing? I have both hard copy and an audio version of TELL ME WHAT YOU SEE. If you listen to audio books, I can send you an audio copy if you're interested.

I'm starting to get more into audio and digital books. I saw a device that hopefully will be out soon that will allow you to easily digitize your books. Check out the video shown on this site:
Thanks for the recommendation for books by Temple Grandin. I've heard of Animals in Translation, but I'm going to wishlist Thhinking in Pictures instead as that book is about people rather than animals.

Hi Beate,

I love your review of Farmer Jane (and thumbed it)!

I feel so lucky to have also gotten that same book as an Early Reviewer book. It's such an excellent resource for me as I am editor of a local CSA newsletter.

Regards from Rockville, Maryland,

Thanks so much, we really appreciate it. I'm so glad you enjoyed This Hungry Spirit.

Congratulations on winning a copy of This Hungry Spirit: Your Need for Basic Goodness by Clinton Sidle. Your copy will be in the mail shortly!

Warm regards,

Dear Buchowl

I noticed you recently added "Serendipitously Rich" to your library. I've been debating about buying this book; wondering if it's just another revamped Law of Attraction book. I would love to know your thoughts/opinion.
Kind regards
p.s I've also sent a request to add you as a friend
Wow, thanks for the compliment!! We do our very best. Glad you're enjoying following along with our book orders!
