It is the perfect counterbalance to Amazon. I’m not anti-Amazon, but I’d like to take this opportunity to help independent bookstores and libraries in my community. 

Here is a blog post I created about how to get started with your own soul homework step by step, and you can find me on Goodreads here, so we can keep track of each other’s journey. 

Have fun! 

These are the books I’ve read, in the order listed. I’ll be adding more books as I finish them.
