If your soul feels a little empty and your heart is at sea, reading a book over the holidays can be the surest, sweetest source of respite and hope.  “Breathe – The Happiness Special” magazine offers a few  uplifting reads ready to rejuvenate optimism, make you laugh, and provide a solid supply of wholesome healing for the spirit.   Check one or two out, download, sit back with cup of tea and get carried away to a happier place.

My favorite, “Love in the Time of Cholera” by Gabriel Garcia Marquez shares the story of Fernando to win over his adored Fermina and invites you into a his journey pursuing the women and unending love.

Some others to put on your book list are “The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time” by Mark Haddon, “We Should All Be Feminists” by Chimamanda Ngoze-Adichie, “The Prophet” by Kahill Gilbran, and “The Alchemist” by Paulo Cohelo, the tale that promises to leave you renewed and appeased.
