Joy For Beginners
by Erica Bauermeister

Coming June 9, 2011

Advance Praise for Joy For Beginners:

“Moving, touching, wonderfully written; inspiring to read.”
–Garth Stein, author of The Art of Racing in the Rain

“A literary confirmation of the power of friendship.”
–Carol Cassella, author of Oxygen

This book is a joy to read. Bauermeister gives us characters who revel in the best of what life has to offer--loving relationships, fine food, good books, and travel--and she writes with keen observance and a wry wit.”
–Stephanie Kallos, author of Broken for You

“A warm and elegant portrayal of what makes women, well, women: strength, succor, healing, forgiveness, and ultimately, connection.”
–Jennie Shortridge, author of When She Flew

    I think this one sounds good, although...I wouldn't want someone else to be selecting a task for me that would be something I'm afraid of. LOL

  3. I so want to read this one as I loved School of Essential Ingredients!!

  4. Diane - I enjoyed this one so much. I can't wait to post my review. Hope you had a lovely Easter, too.

    Kay - I know! I wonder what someone would pick for me. Probably to get a tattoo. I've always wanted one, but I'm chicken. Plus, I don't know what (or where!) I'd get.

    Staci - Wasn't that a wonderful book? I really should reread it. Or maybe listen to it on audio. Hmmmm.

  5. Thanks for the info.

  6. Ann- You're welcome! I loved both of Erica's books.
