With the rising prices of practically everything these days, it’s so hard to make even $5 stretch very far but, if done right, could do so much for someone. Instead of buying a couple of coffees at your local chain for a minute or two of enjoyment I would like you to consider how far your $5 can reach.

Buying a book, for even less than $5 sometimes, can mean so much to you and to the author. This is how far your $5 can go:

A purchase of a book can help a struggling author know he or she is on the right path.

Your purchase could mean a lower sales rank which then helps others see the same book who might love it.

It may brighten the authors day… scratch that, it will brighten the authors day and boost their confidence where they are otherwise struggling.

Buying a book for less than $5 means more money for an author who, in turn, typically buys other books by local authors, creating an endless chain of confidence boosting, smiles and appreciation.

Plus, the book is yours to read over and over and over again as you see fit. If it’s a self-help book or one that brings you laughs, even better as we all need more laughter in our lives. And your smile, as they say, is contagious so can reach around your community like a nice warm hug.

Using just $5 to buy a book can boost your brain capacity, help you sleep better, increases your vocabulary and reduces stress – aspects of living we all need more of.

Your one coffee may perk you up temporarily, but reading about the lives of hilarious characters, awkward situations you can relate to and people you fall in love with will benefit you and all the people around you and all the people around them and so on.

Your $5 may not seem a lot to you or give you confidence it will go very far at all but it will, trust me. You’ll meet new friends, get a new conversation starter and fight any sign of depression you’ve been experiencing in this harsh world. And then you can talk about it – join a book club, ask the writer a question, giggle your way through your long wait time for an appointment.

$5 might not buy much at a grocery store these days but it can sure buy a world of smiles, starting with you and the author.

Cheer up and buy a good book today!

Thanks for reading and please consider making me smile with the purchase of my newest book:

Losing It At 40

Being alone, a virgin and comfortable in her own skin, Annie, like a lot of us, dreads turning forty. Turning forty tends to mean more challenges physically, in the bedroom and beyond. Losing It At Forty is Anne’s story and while she has, so far, lived a mundane life her world is about to change. Sitting at a bar, Annabelle comes to the decision to loosen up and lose her virginity. Starting with no longer using her nickname and wanting to be referred to as her full name, Annabelle.

Annabelle knows she doesn’t need a man but her desire for one is turned up after having a few drink and men flirting with her.

What she knew she wanted was sex and even at forty years old she worried about pregnancy so took time off work to check with a doctor about the pill. He thought it was redundant but prescribed it anyway.

With many humorous incidents, including a time at an esthetician’s parlor and almost being arrested, to buying cream and being caught looking at condoms as well as the dreaded video chat while getting undressed, Annabelle is enjoying life despite the comedic moments her romantic endeavors provide.
