Welcome to Tea Toast & Trivia.

Thank you for listening in.

I am your host Rebecca Budd, and I am looking forward to sharing this moment with you.

I am delighted and thrilled that my long-time friend, Karen Saunders, has joined me on Tea Toast & Trivia to discuss how book clubs build compassionate communities and encourage life-long learning.

Karen called New Brunswick home. That is, until her family decided to settle on the other side of Canada in North Vancouver, British Columbia. Karen is passionate about literature, languages, and books. She attended the University of Victoria and graduated in 1979 with a Bachelor of Arts, a double major in English Literature and French Language. In 1983, Karen obtained a Master of Library Science from McGill University, Montréal, QC. During all her studies, she married the love her of life, Patrick.

Part 2 of a busy month of reading!

Thanks for all the kind wishes about my dang back. It’s made giant strides toward wellness, and I intend to keep it that way after spending the entire month of August groaning.

August book reviews (part 2) include my 4 and 5 star reads of poetry and fantasy, a courtroom romance, a book of dark short stories, two sci-fi reads, and three children’s books.

The final post today is a book review by D.G. Kaye – a glimpse into what is beyond this mortal life of ours. It is often said that those who have passed have never returned to tell us of their findings.. but in Testimony of Light: An Extraordinary Message of Life After Death written in 1969 this may not be the case… head over to read more about this book and Debby’s review.

Sunday Book Review – Testimony of Light – An Extraordinary Message of Life After Death
August 29, 2021

Welcome to my Sunday Book Review. Today I’m sharing a recent read – Testimony of Light written by Helen Greaves, but the writing is all telepathically transmitted to Helen from her departed good friend and former nun, Frances Banks. Fascinating read on the spiritual life we encounter after we pass to the other side.

  1. Great shares, Sally! 😀 I’m in awe of Diana’s ability to not only read so many books a month but then review them with such insight as well! I’m a fan of Rebecca’s podcast but this isn’t an episode I’ve listened to yet, about book clubs and more – can’t wait! Wow! The book reviewed by Debby sounds the most unusual of all and heading over to read more!
