E-books March

The Guide to Breaking Writers' Block By: Julie Duffy
Non-fiction: writing, e- book

This book is full of tips and ideas on how to deal with writers block.  It is a quick read so it itself is not a reason to continue not writing.

19 Lessons on Tea By: 27 Press
Non-fiction: food/cooking, e-book

If you are looking for a basic guide for beginners for tea buying, drinking, and making this would be a good book for you.  It deals with the main types of teas and styles and reads much like the beginners guides for things like wine and beer.

Basic Soap Making: All the Skills and Tools You Need o Get Started ed By: Elizabeth Letcanage
Non-fiction: Home ec, e-book

If you are looking for a book on making soap out of glycerin and adding colors, scents, and plant matter this is not that book.  If you watched the soap making scene in "Fight Club" and said "I'd like to do that" then this would be a good start. (Note: it has no recipes that involve human fat.) This book starts with Lye and plant and animal fats/oils and makes soap from scratch. There are some things about adding things to this soap but most of the book is about how to make soap safely.

I Have Loved You: Getting to Know the Father's Heart By: Cynthia Heald
Non-fiction: Religion, e-book

This book is a devotional about the love of God. It has a good mix of reminding the reader of God's great love for them, and showing them how to grow in holiness. It is a bit annoying with its changing between the different versions of the Bible that it uses.

Consider the Cross: Devotions for Lent By: Kirsten Oliphant
Non-fiction: Religion, Holidays, e-book

Avoiding the problems of the book above this book gives you what Bible verses to read for each day and lets you pick what ever Bible you want to use. It also goes through the last week of Jesus' life in 40 days so that you can use it for Lenten reading.
