Week in Smoke – TGT Edition

I think we need to start The Stogie Review Book Club or something…Ink & Ashes? Received some interesting e-mails and Facebook messages about other books I should checkout. The Power of Now by Eckhart Tolle got a lot of recommendations which was already on my list since it was mentioned in 10 Percent Happier. What am I reading now?
