"For the Sender: Four Letters. Twelve Songs. One Story" is a beautiful book and album by singer/songwriter Alex Woodard, that follows his journey of letting go of his best friend, a labrador named Kona. He received a letter that would change his life, and what began as a song about that letter evolved into a book and an album.

It's a literary and musical experience that's close to Ellen's heart. You can find out more right here.

Hi Ellen....do you ever help people out who need an upgrade on their house? I live in a house that is 65 years old and looks it for sure! Every time I save up some money to fix it up, something breaks or the ceiling falls down and I have to use the money for that. Last summer it was a new AC unit, before that the dining room ceiling almost fell in, before that a new heating system....well you get the picture. I love my house and I bought it because it is right across the street from where my grandparents used to live when I was a little kid. Anyway......just thought I would ask, especially since I haven't seen very many people from Oklahoma on your show!!!

My 13-year-old son and I love Ellen's show. She is just so funny and inspirational. In our own middle grade novel, we tried to capture just a bit of her wit and humor. We are so happy to have stumbled upon her favorite book picks so that we too can get an idea of how to improve our own writing. Looking forward to picking out some great summer reads. For those of you interested in our story, you can head on over to Amazon and type in the title Mason Davis and the Rise of the Storm Makers. It'll give you more of an idea about us and our writing. Happy Reading!

Reading is my escape & recently I came across this book that I really enjoyed & want to share with others. I'm not sure if you take recommendations about book to read but I figured why not give it a try. I found this book on goodreads.com & it looks like it was self published on amazon by the author. The title is Gehenna; it's written by R.M. Heenan.
This book is a must read! After I downloaded it to my iPhone, I couldn't put it down! It's a story based in the late 50's - early 60's when NYC had an actual night life. This book has everything from innocence to murder. However, don't take my word for it, go to www.amazon.com/gp/aw/d/B00D9DF... and read the sample chapters. Trust me you'll love it and want to read more!! It's a story I didn't want to end.
I just thought I'd share my thoughts with you & maybe help this inspiring author get the recognition this book deserves. One thing I've always believed in is paying it forward.

Hi Ellen
I watch your show religiously, as it guarantees to put a smile on my face. The help you give to people is inspiring. I've been trying to figure out how to enter to win the $20,000, but couldn't seem to find out where to do that. With so many people suffering and in need, I find it hard to ask for help for myself. I have developed a degenerative illness (osteo arthritis) that has forced me to stop working. I would never have expected to find myself in this position at 54. I've been applying for government assistance without any success. If people knew how difficult it is to try and avail yourself of the benefits you pay into your entire adult life, they'd be shocked. Going through a really rough time physically, mentally, financially. Please enter my name to try to win the $20,000. I can't tell you what it would mean to my life to find this kind of help. My daughters are very worried about me, and I'm sure they would breath a sigh of relief if I got some help. Thanks for all you do to help people in need. You truly are an inspiration, and I want you to know that my prayers are with you and Portia for all that you do to make this world a better (and funnier) place. Keep on dancing!

I wrote a book about my life, don't have the money to get it printed but I'll bet you would love to read it. I was married to not 1 but 2 abusive husbands, first husband tried to kill me one more than one occasion, once was our daughter, himself and me with me dying first. Not quite sure how I was able to get away from that monster, he ended up killing his girlfriend then himself shortly after our divorce. My book I've heard is very good, wish I could get it published. Thanks for this chance to get this off my chest----I LOVE YOUR SHOW, be kind to one another!!!

Ellen your very face always makes me smile and laugh not because your funny looking but because you have a great smile and you are not afraid of being who you are. I love your humor.. I would love to send you my new book I just had published called "Can I Be Me without losing you?" We could have some fun on your show together!! I am one of nine girls born in England into a catholic family, yes that in itself was a problem. I spent a few years trying to find my own voice and speak my truth but now I have and I'm sharing my journey in my new book. Along with Eckhart Tolles book A New Earth and Bruce Liptons Spontaneous Evolution I have figured me out and now Im sharing it with the world.. send me an address where I can mail a copy to you!!thanks chenty

Hi Ellen & Portia,

Love your show. So glad I go to work an hour earlier so I can get home to watch the full hour of your show each day. I'm glad to hear you both had a great time in Australia.

I just ordered 'For The Sender'. While ordering this book I also ordered 'The Dalai Lama's Cat' I think you may like this book. It is written from the cat's perspective - very spiritual - very inspirational and uplifting. I believe that the author, Dave Muchie, lives in Perth Australia. Take good care of your back and each other.
