EDITOR RECOMMENDED BOOK
Tell Me Your Dreams, by Sidney Sheldon
This book is one of my favourites of all time. Now those who know me well are very much aware of my passion and obsession for all Sid Shel books; I am in awe of his writing techniques. This book is an intriguing story about three beautiful women Ashley, Toni and Alette. Ashley is the main character, who is convinced that she is being seriously stalked. Toni and Alette are Ashley's co-workers, Toni a beautiful British woman, and Alette, a romantic who just moved from Rome.
I can't say any further without revealing some spoilers, but i'll say if you do love some intrigue and mystery, romance and drama, this is one book that you should pick up. If you've read other Sid Shel books and haven't read this one, you absolutely absolutely must!

EDITOR RANDOM FUN ACTIVITY
Smile at 6-8 random strangers this week. Yes, strangers. Yes, randomly. It's another holiday season, and we have so so much to be thankful for and smile about. It may not seem so for some of us; we may be going some tough situations that seem gigantic and never-ending. But we're alive, we can read, we can breathe; however 'insignificant' these may seem, they are reasons enough for us to be thankful that we're still around to see another Christmas season. So let's make use of our lips, make someone else smile by smiling at them. Whether you're in an elevator, walking on the street, at a bar, a restaurant, on a streetcar/subway/metro, just smile at someone, and absolutely mean it. Let them see the genuineness in your eyes, and let their perplexed expression give you some satisfaction (*evil grin*). Do it. This week.
