Favorite adult book recommendation — Twelve Steps to a Compassionate Life by Karen Armstrong
This multifaith book provides guidance on how to lead a compassionate life. A quick read, this former nun offers deep insight into how we may all better understand the people around us. I try to reread this book at least once a year.
Favorite young adult book recommendation — Beauty by Robin McKinley
This tale of Beauty and the Beast is a non-girly rendition of a classic and offers lessons of honor and adaptability in the face of hardship. This is one of the ten books that I will save during the Zombie Apocalypse.
