Smooth Scarlet Cover
If you love the look and feel of books,
“Love’s Book of Answers” offers a weighted feel
and a sexy smooth scarlet satin cover. The answers are
all between the covers.
Even a picture doesn't do the book justice. The book is about 2-inches
thick and the size of your hand. If you saw this book on
a coffee table, you would instinctively reach out and
pick up this book. It would seduce any bibliomaniac
The first time I saw one of Carol’s books I was
instantly intrigued. When I picked up the book I had no
idea how to use it. Of course, I’m not known for
reading instructions. However, once you realize you are
playing a “foretelling the future” game, it becomes
an enjoyable treat. I don’t take this too seriously.
It is more for amusement value.
1. First you ask a yes/no type question while
holding the book and concentrating on your question for
a few seconds.
2. Then you place one hand palm down on the
book’s front cover and open the book when you feel the
time is right.
3. The page you see will contain your answer.
So, I ask the book: “Will I
have a romantic evening tonight?”
Answer: “Watch out for Clinging Vines.”
Since I love towers and castles this was amusing. "Could
this mean a handsome knight will climb up into the tower?"
Answer: "Use your imagination."
Again, I ask: “Does my lover
love me truly and deeply.”
“You’re in hot water; make bubbles.”
Mmm, I got that twice even on the second try the same
page appeared. The fact that I asked about “deeply”
and the answer contained the word “water” was
interesting. "Will I soon own
a jacuzzi tub?"
Answer: “Allow room for surprises.”
I love Carol’s books because they really work for
me. She produced the original Book of Answers in 1998
and the book was then published commercially later that
same year. It went on to become a best-seller.
I was one of the last people at a book signing party
in Issaquah where Carol was just starting to put away
the books. I became intrigued by these little books and
found an Autographed copy. I opened the book and saw a
few words on each page.
Fortunately Carol Bolt was there to save me and
explained how the book worked. She is perhaps one of the
nicest authors I’ve met. She is just as fun to talk to
as her book is to read. She is a multi-disciplinary
artist who has a passion for quotes and also
incorporates words into her two-dimensional and
As soon as I knew the secret of how to play with this
new book toy for my brain, I was laughing and had to buy
the first book. Each book Carol writes just is more fun
than the last. They have the intrigue of a magic eight
ball, except way more answers.
Other answers include:
“What are you waiting for?”
”Keep it to yourself.”
”You’re going to need a map.”
”It will be harder than you think.”
”Could be good under different circumstances.”
”Set a date.”
Just be very careful what you ask.
You might just get the right answer.

Soul's Book of Answers
Intriguing Answers for Your Soul, January 13,
Carol Bolt's books are not only intriguing; they have
beautiful covers that capture your attention. They can
be left on a coffee table and will definitely get the
conversation going at parties. This cover has a blue
suede feel and a swirl of navy blue that reminds me of a
ribbon. The picture here at Amazon does not do this book
justice. This book feels good in your hands and would
capture any bibliomaniacs interest.
The first time I saw one of Carol's books I was
instantly intrigued. I was one of the last people to a
book signing party. They were just putting the books
away, when I walked over and found the last Autographed
copy... as if it was waiting for me.
When I picked up the book I had no idea how to use it.
Of course, I'm not known for reading instructions.
However, once you realize you are playing a game, it
becomes an enjoyable treat.
As soon as I figured out what this book was all
about, I was laughing out loud. Carol explained that it
has the intrigue of a magic eight ball, but unlike the
magic ball, this book has so many more answers. The
instructions are on the back cover on a removable
sticker and are also in the front of the book.
First you ask an open-ended question while holding the
book and concentrating on your question for a few
seconds. Concentrate on our question or say the question
Then, riffle the pages from back to front with your
thumb. When you feel the time is right, stop and open
the book. The page you see will contain your answer.
I tend to ask very specific questions and get quite a
few good answers. You have to be serious about what you
are doing. When you really concentrate, it seems to have
conversations with you. Which can, by the way, produce
some chills up your spine!

collection of wisdom from many spiritual traditions, so
I knew this would be an enlightening experience.
So, I ask the book: "What

Answer: "The only limitations you have
are the ones that you accept."
Since I was a bit curious about this mysterious
quote, I asked: "How will I
free myself from limitations?"
Answer: "Many things which cannot be
overcome when they are together, yield themselves when
taken little by little."
Again, I ask: "How will I
know what I need to overcome?"
Answer: "Wait for what your soul shall
see in sleep."
I love Carol's books because they really work for me.
She produced the original Book of Answers in 1998 and
the book was then published commercially later that same
year. It went on to become a bestseller.
