That was one of the examples I thought of when I was thinking about this
idea of books and messages.  I think that is one of the wisest things I
have ever read in a book, and one of the most helpful pieces of advice I
have ever heard.  I read over that section a lot.  The thought of messages
in books guiding you, or seeming particularly strong during certain
moments of one's life really popped into my head while I was reading the
YOtG ) or as I think of it now, the Book to Be Discussed Friday).  There's
a lot in that book that seemed particularly and peculiarly relevant to me
as I was reading it.

Thanks to Dorian for all those books you mentioned with Halloween scenes.
Off to the public library's homepage to request many, many books...
