Book of the Week - "Slow Love"

Book of the Week - "Slow Love: How I lost my job, put on my pajamas & found happiness" by D. Browning. There cannot be a person on Earth who does not sometimes wonder what the purpose of their life is. Dominique Browning was lucky enough to get fired, so she had time to find out who she was or might be. And we are lucky that she was able to wright (often with great humor) about her loss, her loves, her pajamas and ultimately, her return to life.
