Books I'd Like To Read If ...

... I could only find the time!

The Power of Now by Eckhart Tolle, a New York Times Bestseller. I want to read this first to assess if it's worth reading Oprah's selection A New Earth: Awakening to Your Life's
Purpose by this author.

The Monsters of Templeton by Lauren Groff

The Appeal by John Grisham, top of USA Today's Bestselling list this week

P.S. What a difference a "W" makes. I had to correct my typo of the title; The Power of Now since as the comment reads, The Positive Power of No by Kim Demotte is a whole other book.
