Travel Alone & Love It--A Flight Attendant's Guide to Solo Travel

medal
Travelling solo is an acquired art -- one which flight attendant Sharon Wingler has learned extremely well. I�ve had the pleasure of meeting this travellin�woman and I can attest to the fact that both her travel advice and her writing style are a direct reflection of her warmth and savvy manner. Jam-packed with excellent go-alone travel tips, her �how-to� travel book informs, instructs and, best of all, it inspires the single traveller to get out there and enjoy the countless pleasures of the solo experience! Makes a wonderful bon voyage gift for any woman who's decided to hit the road on her own.

A World of Faith

Star of DavidTravelling opens up new and wonderful worlds to young people. Sightseeing invariably sparks questions about the forms of worship practiced round the globe. To answer these questions, �A World of Faith,� was created by two women - one the writer and the other the illustrator. From Mormons and Methodists to Jews and Muslims, twenty-eight religious denominations are explored -- each in a simple page of text accompanied by another of artwork which beautifully represents that particular faith.This book is a treat to have in your library and perfect for pre-trip prepping. (Signature Books - ISBN 1-56085-116-3)

Women�s words on libraries...

As a child, my number one best friend was the librarian in my grade school. I actually believed all those books belonged to her.

(Erma Bombeck, letter to the American Library Association, 1994)

Women�s words on books...

I only really love a book when I have read it at least four times.
