Hi everyone! This is my first forum post.

What books are you reading? Are they for Lent? If so, I assume they're spiritual/theological. If not, what genre are they? If you're not reading books, are you reading magazines or blogs? What do you like about what you're reading?

I'm reading Emotional Intelligence by Daniel Goleman. An interesting book that "redifines what it means to be smart". Very informative, impressive, full of insights and based on scientific evidence. smile

I used to work for a dentist who did non-amalgam fillings only. However, he would never tell people that amalgam was going to poison them. I think there's enough room for debate that he didn't feel the need to scare people. However, I have always been grateful that I've never had amalgam fillings. I'd rather not take the chance.

Good for you that you haven't had any mercury fillings since mercury can cause birth defects to children if the mother is pregnant and exposed to mercury; which you would be if it's in your teeth.

I'm curious Ron. What do you recommend when you're an adult with fillings that as you say, must surely contain some amount of mercury?

I looked this one up and the subtitle said, "Lessons in Teamwork." Is that the edition you're reading? That sounds kind of interesting, especially since the review said teamwork was the only reason they lived. Sounds like a good read. :)

I've heard of emotional intelligence before. Is it the same thing as maturity? Being able to admit mistakes, not burden people too much with your problems, deal with your emotions in a mature way... is that what the book is about?

For my Lenten reading I am reading an old book called "The Passion of Jesus and it's hidden meaning" by FatherGroenings, S.J. it was written in 1908 and I bought it from the Tan books website. I bought 5 copies and gave them as gifts. It is over 450 pages and is a paperback. It is falling apart, but that's ok. :) I have read it 3x and like The Bible it always says something new to me. It has changed my life. I am also reading a daily Lenten book by the late great Henri Nouwen. And of course a stations of the cross book on Friday nightsby JPII. I always have a stack of Catholic books/booklets by my bed. I can never read just one book at a time. I don't know if that's a bad habit or not. :) I am loving what I am reading now, it is helping me keep on track during Lent. i seem to get easily distracted. But I am trying! Pray 4-me, everyone! :) :) :) God bless you all!

These all look good! I'm usually in the middle of several books at once, too. :) Glad your Lent is going well!
