Need a Good Gift for Mother’s Day? Guess What I’ll Suggest.

Need a Good Gift for Mother’s Day? Guess What I’ll Suggest.

Next Sunday, May 10, is Mother's Day in the United States and Canada.

If you're looking for a thoughtful gift for a mother in your life, may I suggest my new (bestselling) book, Better Than Before?

I've heard from a lot of people who are giving the book as a gift. I offer free, signed bookplates, to make books more special, but because I'm traveling on my book tour, I'm not sure I could get those back to you in time for Mother's Day. But I'll try, or if you're willing to wait a few extra days, you can request bookplates here, and I'll get them to you as quickly as possible. (U.S. and Canada only, sorry--mailing costs.)

If you'd like to read an excerpt, to see if you think the book would be a good gift, read here.

If you're considering giving the audio-book, listen to a clip here.

I love all my books equally, but a surprising number of people have told me that of all my books, Better Than Before is their favorite.

I know some people think that days like "Mother's Day" are artificial and forced, but for myself, I find it helpful to have reminders to think about the important people in my life.
