Welcome to another edition of Mailbox Monday hosted by Marcia at The Printed Page each Monday.
I found two pretty great books in my mailbox this week:
The Superstress Solution by Roberta Lee, MD came to me from Caitlin at FSB Associates. Due for release in January 2010 through Random House, this non fiction book is all about how to identify the stressers in your life (including your own individual stress personality) and how to rebalance our bodies and resist stress. The press release reads: ‘We live on little sleep and exercise but a lot of work. We eat junk and processed foods on the run and fuel up with caffeine and sugar. We are chronically overcommitted, subjected to a 24/7 news cycle, and can’t take our eyes off our computers and PDAs. Is it any wonder that anxious is the new normal?‘ I don’t usually read self-help type books, but I jumped at the chance to get a copy of this book because lately I have been feeling completely overwhelmed and stressed. To learn more about the book (and find our YOUR stress personality), visit the dedicated website for the book.
Now & Then by Jacqueline Sheehan arrived from Harper Collins. I read Sheehan’s previous novel (Lost & Found) back in April 2008 and loved it (read my review). Her latest book once again features a dog…this time an Irish Wolfhound named Madigan. The back cover reads: ‘The past and present wrap around finely wrought characters who reveal the road home.’ If Now & Then is anything like Lost & Found, I have a feeling I will love it. Sheehan is a fiction writer and essayist, and also a practicing psychologist. Her bio says she is a “New Englander through and through” which may also explain my enjoyment of her work! You can learn more about Sheehan and her work by visiting the author’s website.
