I've been so engrossed in the process of making new books this year that my blogging status became nearly obsolete. I'm sorry! While there's been plenty to talk about, I've been lost in the words of authors instead of finding my way up from the pages to write my own thoughts. But I know you'll forgive my absence when I finally share this stack of shimmering new titles! Let's see what 2013 brought us, according to category. Where have we been this year in the worlds of self help, health & healing, and spiritual development?

I like things that a person can enjoy over a long period of time, not just a "one and done" experience. So here is this year's list of suggestions for gifts that continue to give value and let people know how much you think of them during the following year.

Once again, the holiday season is here. That means that it is also the time for warm gatherings, fanciful spreads of food, and (my personal favorite) gift giving!

With daily ephemeris and aspectarian data from 2011-2013, moon cycle information, horoscopes, dates for event planning or gardening, space for your dates
