WHAT I LEARNED: 1. This is Al-Anon’s first e-book (item # eB-25) that came out recently, but I don’t own an e-reader, so I had to check-out the discontinued hardcover book from our District’s Archivist. We have so few books with pictures & this one does – but they’re all in black & white. The e-reader version though has the full color pics. Call me kooky, but I think it makes a difference.
2. Based on the title, I thought this book was going to all be about the 12th Step & carrying the message – nope! It’s all about the 11th Step! The sharings explore different ways to understand a Higher Power as well as how conscious contact is experienced. For example, for some it’s through a poem, a song, a walk on the beach, or by being in a meeting, or found in the literature… But to me, the best thing is that each sharing is identified by the member’s country & it’s nice to know that, in a small way, I’m linked to a person that feels the same way I do who lives in Lithuania, Iceland, & Poland!
**UPDATE (12/19/19): Now that I own an e-reader, this was my first e-book I purchased! It cost me $9.99 to get the Kindle edition from Amazon. According to Kindle, the “Typical time to read” this book is 2 hours & 20 minutes. Click this link to go to this e-book item # eB-25 on the World Service Office website.
