“Books are the quietest and most constant of friends; they are the most accessible and wisest of counselors, and the most patient of teachers.”

Charles W. Eliot

Happy “Library Shelfie Day”. . .

for those of you willing to reveal yourself, your values and your mind by sharing a pic of your reading shelf.

Today’s CNN article pointed out that “If a book can change your life, why leave that to serendipity? The trend toward bibliotherapy — a strategy of seeking books that aid you through difficult times and aspects of your life — is starting to catch on.”

And God knows we’ve been living through difficult times.

So, here’s my humble contribution to further encourage bookshelf therapy, to ideally support a “Great Reevaluation” in the midst of “The Great Resignation.”

Today you can pre-order at the KDP promotional price of only $2.99 your own virtual “shelfie” copy of
before its debut next week on 2/2/22.

I’ve been blessed to have the support of several beta-readers (besides all the editorial reviews below), and here’s just a couple comments that have come in from readers like you:

“The Back Forty is a brilliant challenge, rather, a very compelling invitation to live the rest of our lives, regardless of age, at an elevated sense of freedom, joy and achievement – however, WE define achievement in OUR OWN lives. In a compelling and fun way, the book gently leads you to that definition and lures you into wanting more.”
— Werner Berger
“I keep thinking of What Color is Your Parachute? and how long that’s been around as a go to book. This has the potential to be a similar operating manual for someone going through this midlife makeover process.”
— Steve Stebbins
Think differently, play better.

“It is is better to know one book intimately than a hundred superficially.”
