I subscribe to many newsletters and this is one of them. Mitch Albom is one of my most favorite authors. I loved  his The Five People You Meet in Heaven and Tuesday’s With Morrie.

From Megan Romer, your About Books & Literature Editor
Where I live on the Gulf Coast, it’s pretty warm and nice right about now. Not too hot, not too humid, just right. Reports from my family in Upstate New York, though, indicate that spring may not have sprung everywhere quite yet. However, spring holidays abound, especially for those of the Jewish and Christian faiths.
Mitch Albom – ‘Have a Little Faith’

Need a little something inspirational for this holy week? Try Have a Little Faith, the latest book from Tuesdays with Morrie’s Mitch Albom. It’s a book that explores the common threads of faith itself, not religion specifically, through the true stories of two very different men — a Jewish rabbi and a Christian inner-city preacher. It’s a quick read and one that might just put you in the right mood for a religious holiday celebration.

My Favorites:

I love the children's movies Wizard of Oz and the Neverending Story. Both movies make me feel the lesson that hope is alive and well. After seeing UP this past week, it just might have a chance at being added to this list.

I love the cool colors of blues and purples.Those colors are peaceful for me.

I love The Velveteen Rabbit. Even as an adult, I still feel the urge to cry when he becomes real. I know, silly, but a good book can make me laugh and cry as it takes me on a magical journey.
