It's never too late to make dreams come true - even at the age of 70.
At the age of 68 Dr. Zeev Gilkis, a cancer survivor, decided to gift himself an unusual present for his 70th birthday – to run his first full marathon.
In his previous book “Running Back in Time” the author, writing at the time at age 69, told the story of the first half of his journey. Beginning with two injuries and 5 km runs and ending with achieving his interim goal of running a half-marathon.
“The Beautiful Addiction” relates the second part of his journey, through which Zeev gradually increases the distance of his runs from 21km to 42km while sharing his thoughts about life and becoming ageless, all the way to the surprising ending.
This book is about making dreams come true, setting ambitious goals, persistence, performance, achievement, and joy. There is also some life philosophy and of course, a lot of running.
Read and discover that you too can realize your dreams!
Dream big. Set ambitious goals. Attain unusual achievements.
At the age of 68, while still recovering from his second knee injury, Dr. Zeev Gilkis decided to give himself an unusual present for his 70th birthday.
He dreamed of running a full marathon, and completing the seventh decade of his life seemed to him the ideal timing to do so.
Perhaps this ambitious goal wouldn’t have been so unusual, had he been a very physically active person in his younger years. But Zeev is a cancer survivor who began his "career" in sports relatively late, in his mid-60s.
As two years is a long time, he set a milestone for his 69th birthday: to go mid-way - running a half marathon.
Along with his plans and dreams, he kept a diary where he recorded the ups and downs, practical tips, and original thoughts that crossed his mind in this long, challenging journey.
Join Zeev in this adventure and discover that age doesn't matter. You too can achieve anything you truly dream of.
In his first two books: Unlock Bliss, A Memoir of Getting Happier and The Secret of Life, A Memoir of Getting Younger, Dr. Zeev Gilkis shares with listeners the story of his struggle with cancer, some important and original thoughts, and insights into life and happiness, such as that “Age doesn’t matter!” among many others.
In a very simple writing style, he describes some of the key processes in the brain, the role of the immune system and how to care for it, the story of how he got into sports in his 60s, and much more good stuff.

AN HEIR TO SPARE by Rebecca Connolly
Widowhood has changed much for Anna—Lady Lyndham—but an unconventional heir to the estate was not something she had anticipated. Nor had she anticipated that he would have no intention of forcing her out, although he has every right to. And she certainly did not anticipate finding him handsome, charming, and unfailingly generous. But Ned Richards, the new Lord Lyndham, has a world of surprises in store for her, and not anticipating them will become quite the adventure.

Anxious to establish himself as a landed gentry in Somerset, Oliver is none too pleased to discover that a widow lives alone in a tiny run down cottage bordering his new property. The fact that she’s young and attractive only adds frustration to his sense of responsibility over her. And confound her, she challenges his every attempt to help manage her affairs.
A PROMISE FORGOTTEN by Heather B. Moore
Charlotte Ashford never thought she’d marry a vicar, and she never thought she’d find herself widowed with a young child to care for on her own.

But Lord Wilshore has never forgotten her, and he has never forgotten their promise made long ago. Charlotte would love nothing more than for Lord Wilshore to forgive her, but too much heartache and too much time might make that impossible. Friendship is all she can hope for, but that hope may be dashed as well.

Cairo, 1912: Though Fatma el-Sha’arawi is the youngest woman working for the Ministry of Alchemy, Enchantments and Supernatural Entities, she’s certainly not a rookie, especially after preventing the destruction of the universe last summer.
So when someone murders a secret brotherhood dedicated to one of the most famous men in history, al-Jahiz, Agent Fatma is called onto the case.
