Easter Weekend Reading

Posted by

Greetings, friends, and God bless you.

If you’re finding life difficult at the moment, please remember that you’re not alone. So many people are struggling with what can only be described as drastic societal changes, and isolation and interruption to our regular routines can be very uncomfortable.

It is for the reason just stated that I felt the urge to share my own strategies for dealing with the lockdown, which I did last last week in my article entitled Staying Positive During Coronavirus Lockdown — 10 Strategies, which you can read here. I know the article helped some people, and this makes me feel delighted as it was written for that purpose.

It’s going to be a strange Easter weekend for us all, and I know some people are anxious that they will have too much time on their hands and not know what to do with it. What I’m planning to do is get myself engrossed in one or two really great books, because there are few things that bring me more joy when I have time on my hands.

On the subject of reading, I must just share that I have made my book Big Ideas from Ancient Greece available for free in Kindle format via Amazon worldwide until Sunday. I’m very sad about the fact that in the UK I received a couple of one star reviews for the book, but I hope that won’t put you off reading it. Others have expressed their love for the book, and I would like you to make up your own mind. It’s only a short book, but it was written with care and attention, and I think there’s a good chance you’ll enjoy it. You can view the book in your local Amazon store by clicking here.

One of my plans for the future (should the world ever return to something resembling normality!) is to try to help people struggling with emotional problems through either working as a counsellor (a spiritual counsellor or psychotherapist, perhaps), or being involved in coordinating a counselling service in some way. I have some way to go until I will be ready to undertake such a role, but my personal reading over the Easter weekend will be counselling related.

Perhaps you could use your free time this weekend to find a book that will set you on course to further your dreams and ambitions? I know getting out to a book store will be problematic for most people, but you can read on an eReader, or on your phone, tablet, or computer. Just take care that you don’t give yourself eye strain 🤓

I may well be posting again over the long weekend, because I have many ideas for blog posts I would like to write and share, but I’ll see how things unfold.

Feel free to share how you’ll be spending the long weekend in the comments below, and if you do decide to avail yourself of a free copy of Big Ideas from Ancient Greece, I’d be very grateful for an honest review on Amazon.

To all my Christian readers — a very Happy Easter! 🙏🏻


  1. Hello…hope all is well…I have done a few computer designs & posted a few. Shopped for the first time in 2 weeks, gloves & mask, hoping for the best every time I leave the house now, as all of us do. I did leave a message for our Michigan governor Whitmer, who is up for possible VP on the Democratic ticket this year, so she is playing this quarantine for all it’s worth. I also sent President Trump an email stating my displeasure at what I feel is an over reaction in how the citizens are being treated in our state & how we received a “Extreme Alert” on our phones on Thursday afternoon from the governor’s office that was just an update to the quarantine which has now been extended from April 13th to April 30th. That’s very alarming when those calls come thru. Don’t think it’s necessary to frighten the people any more than they already are. I also asked the president to look into how this entire bio-fiasco began since everyone is blaming everyone else. Also many have commented how convenient the timing of this “outbreak” was that it quieted down all the protesting of citizens in many countries.
    Happy Easter, God bless.

    1. Hey Po’ Girl! I’m glad you were able to get some shopping! There is a lot we could be worried about at the moment but I encourage you to keep focused on things that are positive and uplifting, otherwise you’ll be sucked into a horrible fear-based outlook and I wouldn’t want you to have to go through that. Thanks for your comment and I want to wish you a very Happy Easter too! God bless you! xx
