I tend to go through authors that I like, and right now I am reading Geneen Roth. She talks about emotional eating and the links of weight to our childhoods. I find it very helpful to read someone else's story of weight loss, but I don't really relate to her experiences (thankfully).

emoticon I love a good mystery so when my cousin handed me a "The Killing Room" (a Lesbian mystery) I was thrilled. MOST of the book was superb but I do NOT enjoy ANY book that goes into detail of sexual encounters and sadly this one did just that.

It was a marvelous story line, but in my estimation, she should have left-out the sex, THEN it would have been a really good read.

As for the book you read, it sounds wonderful. I'll have to check it out because I too have an extremely difficult time when it comes to getting organized with my household chores.

I agree with you, too, that if a book feels too Christian to me, then I don't enjoy it & have difficulty getting passed the Christian things. emoticon

Thanks for the tip!

I'm in the process of reading Magical Housekeeping by Tess Whitehurst and it's really good so far.

I tend to have trouble with cleaning. I'm just not organized or tidy in general and cleaning makes me completely freak out.

I tried the FlyLady book and website, but it's got a seriously Christian vibe to it which I find really unhelpful, and something about the tone really grates on my nerves.

And then I managed to snag a copy of Magical Housekeeping at a librarian conference earlier this summer, and it's a way better read. It equates cleaning your living space with cleansing your spirit, which isn't exactly a new concept, but I love the way she expresses it. There's no condescension or sappiness; it's very straightforward.

And I love books that remind me that everyday acts can be deeply spiritual. Anyone else read a book lately that they love?
