Two Soulful Books to Soak In This Summer

(DGIwire)  There’s nothing quite like relaxing with a book in the summer. Whether it is by a pool, beach, park, lake, backyard or inside in the air conditioning, summer is a perfect time to soak up not only some rays but also some warm words. For those looking for some inspiration to go along with their SPF, two books have debuted just in time to add to summer reading lists.

The Silver Disobedience Playbook, written by Dian Griesel—a perceptive human behavior analyst, social influencer, businesswoman, model, wife and mother who some have said is “Oprah meets Richard Branson”—offers comforting, challenging and practical advice. Based on her essay-style blog Silver Disobedience®, which inspires 300,000 followers to passionately share extensive personal responses to thoughts on living and loving agelessly, the book is Dian’s answer to requests from her followers to publish the essays in print form. Designed to be “read-it-any-way-you-want,” readers are encouraged to open to whatever headings capture their attention.

“The ‘no rules’ style of the book is perfect for lounging this summer and many have said that the essays can be used for meditation as the words are allowed to sink in,” said Griesel who was named by AARP as a top 50+ influencer,. “I hope that readers find that the words in the book bring a smile and comfort just as a sunny day does.”

In The Path Made Clear, Oprah Winfrey writes about her own experiences and, according to USA Today, features tidbits of insights through quotes and short interviews from her archives with famous dignitaries and stars—including Deepak Chopra, Jay-Z and Ellen Degeneres. In the book, Oprah talks about when her “job” ended and when her “calling” began, squashing fears and actualizing dreams. The book includes more than 100 photographs to help illuminate the messages within.

Sure to make a splash this summer, both The Path Made Clear and The Silver Disobedience Playbook are available on Amazon and other booksellers. Dive in, and they will likely brighten any day.
