meQuilibrium: 14 Days to Cooler, Calmer, and Happier

I chose this book as my first to review when I joined up with Blogging for Books.  This review is my own thoughts and feelings, and I am in no way obligated to write a positive review. It is the soul purpose of Blogging for Books to get honest reviews on books available.

There are so many books out there about stress and what to do about it. Many authors write about how to reduce your stress. This may work for a small percentage of people but let's face it, you will never get rid of all the stress in your life. It's just not going to happen. The authors of meQuilibrium take a different approach, one that will work for just about everyone. It's not about getting rid of your stress although lets face it, if you can get rid of some of it of course that will help immensely.  It's all about managing that stress. This book takes you on a journey where you learn to make changes in your life and your coping style to help alleviate the effects of the stress in your life, to get into a more calm and zen state and to being living your life without sweating the small stuff, so to speak. When you don't stress about everything, life gets more enjoyable.  I've been someone who has had a lot of stress and anxiety in my life and I would definitely recommend this book to anyone and everyone who is feeling the effects of stress.

Hello my name is Katie and I'm a bookaholic

I think I have a problem. Well... no I don't think it's a problem, but it probably is a problem. Let me explain.

So yeah, you know I love books (understatement)  I've been sick for about the last week or so and just didn't want to get out of bed let alone read (I know can you believe it?!?)   Anyway... I've done some binge reading and finished 2 novels yesterday and logged into my library account to see what I could see. I searched for a book that I saw on my favourite cozy mysteries website and requested that.

Today I read up on some new books on Facebook. I'm in this fantastic group called THE Book Club (if you want an invite let me know! you won't be disappointed) So I logged into my library account and searched for some of the titles, and went through the list of the latest additions to my local library.

So here's the problem. When I clicked over to my account page I did a double take. I've got 13 books on loan currently (granted yes some have to be returned because I did finish them so.. ) but I've also got another 8 on request. Not to mention the shelves of books that I have here at home that I've yet to read.. or the freebies that I've downloaded to my e-reader.

And my nephew just walked into my room and handed me a book. Turns out he was just at the library and they told him that there was a book in for me and picked it up (love that kid! Thanks!!)

Needless to say, my plans for this weekend are.. read... read... and read some more! Update blog, update book reviews and read :)
