Reading Materials

Here is a list of a few books I have read lately and they have all influenced me positively in one way or another along my path. I will use Amazon links so you can see the actual book but I am not endorsing Amazon. I would guess all of these books are available at your locally owned bookstores. If you can, please patronize your small business local book seller.

These books are not the answers. These are resources and I am sure there are many good books I have missed but these are the ones I have read and I would appreciate any recommendations others may have for me.

Thank you so much! Always looking for good books and it's so hard sometimes to figure out what's going to be good without a referral :)
I haven't heard of any of these books before so thank you!
God bless.

I have Addict in the Family, really got a lot out of it. Thanks for the list, I have several I am caught up in right now also.

Another great book is "Crystal Meth: They Call It Ice". The book is by Mary Holley. She is a doctor that lost a brother to addiction. Also covers all addictions and good info about how to deal with the addict. I have given it to others and it was deeply appreciated. Blessings....Jan
