Book Hub Highest Recommendation — Caribbean Scuba Diving

More than nineteen million visitors travel to the Caribbean each year, and scuba diving is one of the notable reasons. Hundreds of species of coral and over 500 species of fish, clear water, sandy bottoms, and relatively shallow depth combine to make local conditions especially interesting for both novice and expert divers.
Scuba is king in these water, and Mary Peachin has written an all-inclusive guide to the many islands in the Caribbean, plus the Bahamas and Bermuda.

Praise for There’s More Than One Way to Be Okay

Lauren Merryfield’s book gives a delightful insight into the life of a successful and warmhearted blind person. The ingenious ways she overcomes life’s formidable challenges were a complete revelation to me. The degree of success she has achieved in her life is an inspiration to us all. For a humorous glimpse into an unusual life filled with cats and characters, this is the book we all need to read.

– Elaine “Dusty” Foster, Colorado entrepreneur

This book is not only an interesting autobiographical sketch of the life and experiences of a woman who happens to be blind, but she also shares insights and knowledge gleaned through those life experiences, the education she received, and her own contemplation of life in its many-faceted aspects that should prove helpful to anyone who reads it. I am a braille proofreader by profession and was honored, as Lauren’s best friend, to be asked to help edit the manuscript. I found it to be very entertaining and well written, and I encourage anyone to read this delightful book.

– Rose B., braille proofreader, Nebraska

NEW RELEASE: Self-Help Title from Dr. Linda R. Harper – “Give: A Guide to Discovering the Joy in Everyday Giving”

What is the key to giving that energizes and fulfills us, rather than exhausts and
depletes us?
asks Dr. Linda Harper, Ph.D. in her latest work,
‘Give: A Guide to Discovering the Joy of Everyday Giving.’

     Daily life continually asks us to make choices about how to give—whether it is our attention, time, energy, talents, love, or even money—to others and to ourselves. Often, we juggle our attempts to meet our own needs and the demands of others. So the decisions we make about what, when, and how much to give, strongly impact the quality of our everyday lives. These choices can cause us stress, turmoil, guilt, exhaustion, and depletion—or they can bring us immeasurable joy, peace of mind, and fulfillment.
     Linda R. Harper’s simple five-step guide will help you rediscover the joy in everyday giving using one question: What are my heart’s true desires at this very moment? ‘Give’ is not about giving more or giving less. It is about giving from your deepest self and trusting the natural wisdom of your heart’s desires. As you become the giver you were meant to be, you will deepen the meaning of your life through soulful, ordinary acts of giving—both to yourself and to others.
