How to De-clutter and Make Money Now: Turn Clutter Into Cash with The One-Minute Organizer (Organizing for Simple Living)How to De-clutter and Make Money Now: Turn Clutter Into Cash with The One-Minute Organizer by Donna Smallin Kuper
My rating: 3 of 5 stars

After reading another book by Donna Smallin Kuper, I decided I would try to stay with her and read this book. Well, this book was about selling, not so much about decluttering. And I see a lot of reviews that are criticizing that. But, um, read the title. The assumption is you’ve already decided which parts of the clutter you’re going to get rid of and what you’re going to sell. This book just suggests ways in which to do that.

The only problem I have with the book, was trying to find it on Amazon. Now that I’m trying to write a review. It didn’t seem to be in my purchases, and when you do a click within good reads on this copy, it takes you to Amazon’s home page. Okay, there were some grammar and editing issues in the book that I obtained for free. I assume that this new edition that you can find on Amazon for $4.99 is really edited and better than the one I have. So if you need some suggestions on how to sell your stuff, this is the book for you.

Chasing Down the Dawn: Stories From The RoadChasing Down the Dawn: Stories From The Road by Jewel
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

In the ‘six degree from’ game, I feel fairly close to Jewel and her family. And since my cruise to Alaska in June over a decade ago I have a sacred place in my heart for that “Last Frontier”, and Kilcher family. So with the above in mind, when I saw this book on sale for $.99, I grabbed it.

This is not a fantasy book, this is not an adventure book. It is bits and pieces of someone’s life. To read that kind of thing I have to be in a certain mood. Having just moved north into the country into a slower lifestyle. I found I could probably enjoy a quieter books. I was not wrong. I don’t think I’ve read anything else by Jewel. And she’s not of my generation of music so I barely listen to her. So it was I found myself wandering in somebody else’s life through their writing. Much of it is poetic in nature, a lot of it feels like you’re reading her journal. I felt Jewel was very brave, with a lot of what she shared of her life in this book. Maybe she addressed these things in her other books, but as I said this is my first time reading her writing.

How could someone be judgmental about a person sharing a piece of their life? So I find giving it any kind of stars difficult. For being brave and being open, I give her five stars for this book. But I think the hard thing for me was how often the book went back and forth in time. And since I was listening on text-to-speech, I found it difficult to know, what part of her life she was speaking of. And though the book is now $3.99, I think it is well worth it. If only to teach the rest of us to start writing our journals.
