Hello! As we draw closer to 2017, here are a few recommended readings to add to your shelf. Thanks to @vampyrohtechnix_media for sharing your #shelfie. Have a great 2017, read lots of books and inspire someone today.  Today’s selections are from multiple genres, including anthropology, travel, spirituality, and science fiction.

The list includes

  • Bonobo The Forgotten Ape by Franz De Waal & Frans Lanting.
  • A Southern California Bouldering Guide (Second Edition) by Craig Fry
  • The Art of Happiness at Work by His Holiness The Dalai Lama and Howard C. Cutler, M.D.
  • Parable of the Sower by Octavia Butler.

Not sure what to read this coming year? I highly recommend that you check out these titles. Have a happy holiday season!

I finally made the front cover of a book!
