A wish list from Cathy

Cathy gave me a wish list of books as requested by women at the prison – I thought I would pass it along to you and your networks/libraries etc before posting it to the GELA/Jerome listservs. Maybe we can collect some of these books at our next meeting?  The women would be thrilled.

Here’s the list:

Roots
Shogun
The Book of Negro
The Power of Now – Ekhart Tolle
Heavier to Heaven (Kurt Cobain’s biography)
Any V.C. Andrews books
Gregory Maguire series
The Other Boleyn Girl
Clive Barker books
Dr Phil – The Ultimate Weight Loss Challenge
Paranormal subject
More current “healing” non-fiction
S.E. Hinton books
My Sister’s keeper – Jodi Picoult
Dean Koontz books (From the Corner of his Eye)
Restoration by Rose Tremain
The Lords of Discipline – Pat Conroy
The Pilot’s Wile by Anita Shreve
