Books! I don't care what format they are in; paperback, hard cover, ebook or audio book, they are the backbone of modern society. Ever since old Johannes Gutenberg invented the moveable type printing press in 1439, the book became a more and more integral part of our society. Amazingly, so far, books have remained in essentially the same format for 576 years. However, the "Digital Age" is changing that fairly rapidly. Here's the thing, no matter the format, a book is still a book.
Each of us has our own reading preferences. Some of us are voracious readers. Others, like me, are simply regular readers. And still others are occasional readers. Some of us like fiction in its various genre. Others, like me, prefer mainly non-fiction. One kind of book I really like is the anthology book encompassing brief chapters or essays by several authors or a book by a single author with numerous essays by that author. They are easy to read and you can pick and choose from a variety of topics. One of my favorite authors is Robert Fulghum.
But, this review is about a new favorite author. Her name is Barbara Glanz of Sarasota, Florida. Full disclosure is appropriate. Barbara is a long-time, personal friend of mine and a delight to spend time with. I could write an entire article just about Barbara, her background, experiences and adventures. For example, she is the only professional speaker in the world to have spoken to audiences on all seven continents (that includes Antarctica). But, Barbara will be the subject of a future guest interview podcast. This review is about Barbara's latest book endeavor, Priceless Gifts - Using What God's Given You to Bless Others.
