@katebluestone:  I have read the Gift of Fear, and it was very worthwhile. Good suggestion.


I would have benefited from greater financial literacy, so a book like Personal Finance for Dummies, Smart Women Finish Rich, or The Millionaire Next Door would have been helpful.

How much richer I would be if I had known more about managing and investing money at a younger age!

@motogal:  sex and the Single Virl by Helen Girlsy Brown and then  Why Men Love Bitches. Best guide to not getting you heart broken.

Margaret Atwood for sure! I’ve just started reading Adventures for Your Soul by Shannon Kaiser. I can’t say about the whole book, but I like the beginning.

If I’m so wonderful why am I still single? By Susan Page 

This book changed my outlook completely when I was single – I don’t think I would have given my husband a chance had I not read the book before meeting him.
