Simple Abundance Countdown…

December 26, 2010

If you read my post about Gratitude and thought “I’d love to read that book Heather is talking about”….. we’re in the homestretch!

Simple Abundance Group Read starts January 1st.

If you don’t have this fun pink book, get out to the closest Half Price Books or Goodwill and GET IT.  I still have an extra copy – free to the first person that asks for it.

Here’s a little info about the author –

Sarah Ban Breathnach’s (pronounced “Bon Brannock”) work celebrates quiet joys, simple pleasures and everyday epiphanies. The wisdom, warmth, compassion and disarming candor of her No. 1 New York Times bestsellers, Simple Abundance: A Daybook of Comfort and Joy and Something More have made her a trusted voice to millions of women.

 

Ban Breathnach’s tale of how she found her way to discovering the joy in the smallest details of her life began one day in 1985 when a ceiling tile crashed down on her head while she was having lunch in a fast-food restaurant with her two-year-old daughter. For the next 18 months she was left partially disabled, unable to continue her work as a freelance writer and radio broadcaster. As she healed from her injury, she became grateful for every living thing: listening to music without getting sick or dizzy, to be able to go downstairs without wobbling or go out into the backyard to see the falling leaves. Things that were so minute that she had never taken time to notice before.

Ban Breathnach’s writerly impulse led her to record these seemingly inconsequential moments in what she came to call a gratitude journal, which led to her blockbuster bestseller, Simple Abundance . First published in November 1995 with little fanfare, Simple Abundance –a daily inspirational guide written for people who wish to live by their own lights–soon found its audience through word-of-mouth raves including Oprah Winfrey’s, who named it “her favorite book” of 1996 and called it “life-changing.” Simple Abundance has been back to press 43 times, and has sold nearly 4 million copies in the United States alone. It has been on the New York Times bestseller list for over two years, topping the list at No. 1 for a year. It was named one of the top ten best selling books in the United States for the last five years according to USA Today.

    I want your book! If you still have it, I will try to read something longer than a magazine article!
