"These are five of my favorite books: Stillness Speaks
and A New Earth
by Eckhart Tolle; To Kill a Mockingbird
by Harper Lee; The Bluest Eye
by Toni Morrison; and my latest book club pick, The Story of Edgar Sawtelle
by David Wroblewski. I recommend any or all as great Christmas gifts, and I hope you're as inspired and moved by them as I am."
