>From Women Who Shop Too Much by Carolyn Wesson (St. Martin's, $16.95):

"Balanced shopping and spending are delicious parts of life; they are not something we'd want to give up entirely. But we live in a highly acquisitive society that has taught us to believe that possessions bring happiness. I've come to question that. Through my own battle with shopping and spending I found a slew of other activities that have brought me far greater pleasure. Things that nourish my soul. Sweet William, for one. He's the guy standing next to me inside the back cover."

(Editor's note: Sweet William is a horse.)
