Yesterday we introduced you to the subject of Virtual Book Tours and the more recent books we've reviewed. Now here's a list of the other books we've featured so far:

Why don't you scroll back to May 8, 2008 and read about our interview with Anne Kreamer. And here's a sampling of the comments we received over a year ago about Anne's Going Gray Virtual Book Tour:

I hear you and appreciate what you found in your research. But I'm a 55 year old representative in a pharmaceutical company and in competition with women much younger than me. I hate to admit it but I think that coloring my hair is one way to stay in the game.

When I started to go gray in my early 40s I decided to keep it natural. It saved me so much time and money and my husband loved it. It may sound silly but I'm proud of my decision.

It was never a problem for me. I love going grey - not only does it keep me out of the beauty shop and saving money but it reminds me of my mother whom I see every time I look in the mirror.

I put coloring my hair in the same category as buying hip new clothes - it's just one more way to keep myself looking good as I age.

Bravo to Nourishing Relationships for presenting this topic and to Anne for writing the book and going grey. If one has the hair, the confidence and the belief system that grey is not old, it saves time, money and attracts attention. Besides, most women and men are more stunning au natural. Go for it!

I just happened upon this blog yesterday and what a delight. I never imagined that this subject would be so interesting. I'm still going to color my hair because it makes me look younger and my husband likes it this way - but I'm sure I'll be thinking more about it during my time at the beauty parlor.

Now that you've heard from others, it's your turn - share your personal opinion about this colorful topic.

It was the time and money it took to maintain that made me decide to stop coloring my hair. Although going through the change didn't look so good, now I'm delighted.

A woman stopped me last week about my gray hair. She told me she has breast cancer and her doctor advised her not to dye her hair anymore. She was looking for reassurance and I was happy to answer her honestly - it's the best decision I've made lately. Sue

I like to look younger and my husband calls me his trophy wife.

I agree with the woman who says it's part of her staying young regimen - just like my yoga practice. Rhonda

As far as welcoming my gray hair: I'm in my 60s, a grandmother several times over and in the prime of my life - if not now, when? Sally
