Kindle Daily Deal: Two "Feel Better" Books, $1.99 each

Today we have two KDDs.  First: Unglued: Making Wise Choices in the Midst of Raw Emotions, by Lysa TerKeurst. Normally $10.99, now $1.99!

82% off, today only! 208 pages.  142 out of 147 reviews four stars and above.

Amazon reviewer 69Thunderbird says "If you have moments you come emotionally unglued -- over big things or little things -- this book is worth the read. Our tongues get us in the most trouble. This book helps us learn ways to control our emotions, our tongue, and our reactions. Whether we let spew out all our anger/frustration and then feel regret afterwards or whether we push everything down inside and let it brew before it explodes like a volcano, neither is a good solution. Decide to let God make wise choices."

Lysa TerKeurst admits that she, like most women, has experiences where others bump into her happy and she comes emotionally unglued. We stuff, we explode, or react somewhere in between. What do we do with these raw emotions? Is it really possible to make emotions work for us instead of against us?

Yes, and in her usual inspiring and practical way, Lysa will show you how. Filled with gut-honest personal examples and Biblical teaching, Unglued will equip you to:
 * Know with confidence how to resolve conflict in your important relationships. 
 * Find peace in your most difficult relationships as you learn to be honest but kind when offended. 
 * Identify what type of reactor you are and how to significantly improve your communication. 
 * Respond with no regrets by managing your tendencies to stuff, explode or react somewhere in between.
 * Gain a deep sense of calm by responding to situations out of your control without acting out of control. 

Features: text-to-speech, lending, X-ray enabled.

And, as I said, we have TWO daily deals.  Here's the second:

A Life in Stitches: Knitting My Way Through Love, Loss, and Laughter, by Rachael Herron. Normally $10.99, now $1.99!

82% off, today only!  145 pages.  57 of 61 reviews four stars and above.

Amazon reviewer  Chel Michelline says "I almost passed on this book because of the word "Loss" in the title- I'm not a big fan of sad books. But there's very little sadness in "A Life in Stitches: Knitting My Way through Love, Loss, and Laughter" - instead there's a lot of sweetness, humor, and honesty.  Knitting has been Rachael Herron's passion for many years, and has sustained her throughout many different experiences. Herron's book consists of several brief stories about various times in her life when knitting served as not only a form of comfort but also a way to mark time and experience."

In these 20 heartfelt essays, Rachael Herron celebrated romance novelist by day, 911 dispatcher by night, shows how when life unravels there s always a way to knit it back together again, many times into something even better. Honest, funny, and full of warmth, Herron s tales, each inspired by something she knit or something knit for her, will speak to anyone who has ever picked up a pair of needles. From her very first sweater (a hilarious disaster, to say the least) to the yellow afghan that caused a breakup (and, ultimately, a breakthrough), every piece has a moving story behind it. This beautifully crafted and candid collection is perfect for the knitter who loves to read and the reader who loves to knit.

Features: text-to-speech, lending, X-ray enabled.
