A weekly features celebrating unread books on our shelves! Pick a book you own but haven’t read, write a post about it (suggestions: include what it’s about, why you want to read it, and when you got it), and link up.
My Shelf Control picks will be books that I already own — either physical copies from my overflowing shelves, or one of the many unread titles elbowing each other out of the way on my Kindle.
So, although Bookshelf Fantasies is only counting actual books I’m also going to add in any books that I’ve received from authors and Netgalley that need to be read… so, here goes!
This is one that I’ve had for years. YEARS!! I am really excited to get to it but it is not a book that you read straight through. It takes time over days and days. So, like my exercise regime, I start reading and then forget! I keep with it and I’m all gung ho and then … nothing!
I may start it Jan 1st again (not my exercise regime LOL) and see if I can finally get through it next year!

In the early part of the twentieth century, a visionary named Ernest Holmes began a journey of exploration and research that profoundly affected thinkers throughout America. His work, based on the teachings of the great philosophers, the sacred wisdom of both Eastern and Western traditions, and the empirical nature of science, offers a philosophy of religion and psychology emphasizing the limitless potential of the human mind.
Now, for the first time, The Science of Mind appears in paperback to coincide with the seventieth anniversary of Ernest Holmes’s founding of the Religious Science movement.This book contains the fundamentals of Holmes’s teachings and is a primary resource used by teaching centers and spiritual healers worldwide. Its universal principles apply to people of all spiritual backgrounds as they describe a higher level of existence attainable through the use of Nature’s forces and the power of God. While imparting an unrivaled technique for living, Dr. Holmes’s classic guide speaks clearly to a complex world caught in transition and searching for guidance.
