Self-Help on The Point with Mindy Todd

This morning (a week behind schedule, our last Wednesday of the month show had to be rescheduled due to Melanie’s cold) we talked about Self-Help books. If there is a book topic that YOU would like to suggest to us, e-mail us at with the subject heading POINT TOPIC. We’re always interested in knowing what kind of book you might want us to discuss. Some of the topics we are considering for the coming year include religious/spiritual books, mysteries, travel, and books that are good for book groups. We’ll be back on air on the last Wednesday of this month, February 27th.
