Check one of these out this month for a great bit of nonfiction reading!

Life without Limits: Inspiration for a Ridiculously Good Life by Nick Vujicic
This is an inspiring biography about a man who was born without arms or legs. It describes how he overcame his disabilities to live an independent, fulfilling life. I have no reason to complain about anything!

The More of Less by Joshua Becker
Using a Christian perspective, Becker helps you recognize the life-giving benefits of owning less; realize how all the stuff you own is keeping your from pursuing your dreams; craft a personal, pratical approach to decluttering your home and life experience; and embrace the joys of generosity. I am attracted more and more to this type of life and see that things are not what bring me happiness.

The Life Changing Magic of Tidying Up: The Japanese Art of Declutterin and Organizing by Marie Kondo
Once again, this book has the theme of having less and being organized. Kondo's method shows a way for simplifying, organizing, and storing. She takes tidying to a whole new level, promising that if you properly declutter your home once, you'll never have to do it again. Although some of her suggestions seem a bit strange (hold the item and see if it gives you joy), the organizing concepts are very neat. (Get it? Neat?!)

Living Well, Spending Less: 12 Secrets to the Good Life by Ruth Soukup
Once again, another great book for living well on a realistic budget. Good read for future retirement years!

500 of the Healthiest Recipes and Health Tips You'll Ever Need by Hazel Courteney
This title tells it all! Not that I follow everything, but it does offer some good tips using common sense.

The Complete Aromatherapy and Essential Oils Handbook for Everyday Wellness by Nerys Purchon
I have been dabbling with a diffuser and some essential oils and find this book a good encyclopedia that is easy to use and understand.

Aging Backwards: Reverse the Aging Process and Look 10 Years Younger in 30 Minutes a Day by Miranda Edmond-White
This needs no further explanation! Who doesn't love this title? She shares great information on things I am working on in my life, like flexibility, muscle strength, posture, balance, energy, etc. I like the pictures of stretches and exercises you can do. Not sure if I have reached the 10 years younger yet!

Caribbean by Cruise Ship by Anne Vipond
A guide with over 400 photographs, maps, and illustrations that makes the most of your time in port with shore excursions, the best beaches, dive and snorkel sites, golf courses, shopping tips, local history, and more. I love this book since I am a cruise addict; it is the perfect port companion!
