In an effort to be more frugal, I borrowed this book from the library. However, I like it so much I have now ordered it from Amazon while still reading my library copy. (I declind the Kindle version because this one of those books that I really need to be able to flip through while reading.)

It is the true story of a skeptical woman's experiment in wishing for three things in her life: to buy a house, to find a significant other, and to get a deeper spiritual connection. The author discusses many different approaches to wishing and the law of attraction and her struggle to take the whole concept seriously. Even though she disses Wayne Dyer (who I adore) on p. 89, I am still really enjoying the book.

I'm currently about halfway through it and plan to continue reading at a leisurely pace through the holidays. This is a good book to read before the New Year.
