Charlie And The Chocolate Factory

CADCF       Buy the book:     
T
he movie is a must watch too, for any age group. Buy the movie AND the book at a great price: 

Author: Roald Dahl.
HIGHLY RECOMMEND FOR LITERALLY ANY AGE GROUP.
On a serious note though, especially if you’re a chocolate/candy/anything-sweet lover, you’ve landed upon the right book.
The book is about Charlie Bucket, a little boy, living in a little house, in a little town, with his not-so-little family, and gets a golden ticket into a seemingly MASSIVE chocolate factory.

Willy Wonka, a flamboyant, eccentric, innovative business man owns the biggest chocolate factory in the entire world, but his factory has been closed for a long time now. Strangely enough, the factory is still full-fledged and operational. How? I’ll let you find out yourself.
From ice-cream that never melts, to gobstoppers that are everlasting, he can create anything! He even built an entire palace out of chocolate. (Well it melted in a while, but that is a different story alltogether)
One day, he sends out a message saying that five golden tickets are in circulation, and the five lucky children to have this ticket, will have a full tour of his oh-so-mysterious factory, and a LIFETIME supply of his delicious chocolates. This is not the least surprising given his enigmatic nature.

Roald Dahl has brought out the personality and behavior of his numerous characters in the most lucid and humorous style. He comes up with his very own words, like scrumptidelumtious, Oompa-Loompa, and whatnot.
This book is one hell of a roller-coaster, and I guarantee that you’re left with a longing desire to explore the miracle that is Willy Wonka’s Chocolate Factory (And devour all the chocolate there is, ofcourse).

“Everything in this room is edible, even I’m edible, but that is called cannibalism, my dear children, and is in fact frowned upon in most societies.” –Roald Dahl, Charlie And The Chocolate Factory.

 

The Magic

magic               
Author: Rhonda Byrne.

Have you read “The Secret” from Rhonda Byrne? I was introduced to this book a few years back where she introduced the reader to the concept of The Law of Attraction. In her latest book, “The Magic”, she focuses on how gratitude can change our lives, that we will attract all we have ever desired through the practice feeling gratitude.

The book begins with a reminder of how we felt magic in life as children, how as adults, we want to be around kids just to feel that magic again.  As in The Law of Attraction, “like attracts like.” So, if you are grateful for what’s in your life, the law of attraction will attract more of that into your life.

Byrne writes that all the major religions have gratitude at their core, so The Magic is to count your blessings and be grateful. The more gratitude you give out, the more abundance you will receive.

To some, it may seem like a sermon, but if you truly believe in the power of manifestation, it will certainly work for you.
Highly recommend to lovers of philosophy.
