FOUR THINGS TO ASK A STRANGER (almost a parody)

Welcome to Mary Anne Radmacher's blog.

One way to get to know a person you've just met is to ask them to tell you about their favorite friends. It's said that a person essentially becomes an aggregate of the five people with whom they spend the most time.

There's another telling question to ask a stranger. It's all about a book.

1) Is there one book that you have re-read and will read again (and again)?
2) What is the most recent book that you've read and what stands out to you most?
3) What is the title of a book you recommend most often to friends?
4) What was the last book you read that made you so sad when it came to the end? (Because you wanted to keep on reading, not because the ending was sad!).

If the person you are just getting to know has never re-read a book, can't remember what stood out from the last book they read, doesn't recommend books to friends and has never felt sad to stop reading an excellent book...

I suggest that you stop conversing with them. And, perhaps, run. Kidding (not kidding). Perhaps you might consider striking up a conversation with someone else that you might want to get to know. AND start THAT conversation off by recommending a book you've recently read...

a significant book available for body issues

Throughout my life I’ve met and dealt with the societal and health struggles of being a “big girl” in a tiny girl world. If you or someone you love struggles with embracing their body the way it is - Sarah Maria is telling an important story. There is a tug of war between two points. There is indeed a genuine challenge with obesity in America. And there is a fabricated sense of ideal body types based on models and magazines. I and my associates here are participating in the launch of her book. You’ll find a special gift that you can use as a screen saver as a celebration of your purchasing this book:

“Love Your Body, Love Your Life!”

Yes, a whole new world awaits you – a world of unimaginable love and accomplishment, as you discover and pursue your heart’s desires...

…and your world will reflect this immeasurable beauty that is residing within you!
