Qunatum Life

We don't discuss self-help type books at the club but I just finished reading 5 Steps to a Quantum Life and found it really interesting. If you liked The Secret, you will appreciate the Quantum Life. Most of the scientific info was way over my head but the exercises were easy to read and practical.

Next Meeting of The Okebook Club

We'll meet on May 23 to discuss Eat Pray Love by Elizabeth Gilbert. Interestingly, I'll be off to Italy next week. How is that for coincidence! Maybe one day I'll get to see India and Indonesia like Miss Gilbert.
