This week's book is written by one of my favorite authors, Mitch Albom.  This particular book renders sweet messages of wisdom that one gets from aging.  Go HERE for my post on this book.  This is a hardcover copy. :)

Maybe it was a grandparent, or a teacher or a colleague. Someone older, patient and wise, who understood you when you were young and searching, and gave you sound advice to help you make your way through it. For Mitch Albom, that person was Morrie Schwartz, his college professor from nearly 20 years ago. Maybe, like Mitch, you lost track of this mentor as you made your way, and the insights faded. Wouldn't you like to see that person again, ask the bigger questions that still haunt you? Mitch Albom had that second chance. He rediscovered Morrie in the last months of the older man's life. Knowing he was dying of ALS - or motor neurone disease - Morrie visited Mitch in his study every Tuesday, just as they used to back in college. Their rekindled relationship turned into one final "class": lessons in how to live. This is a chronicle of their time together, through which Mitch shares Morrie's lasting gift with the world.

  1. I have to admit that I was surprised to discover that I didn't enjoy this book - very strange when The Five People You Meet In Heavon is one of my all time favourites. Have you read it? If not I can highly recommend it as a great read.

  2. Yes Tracy, I read that one too and agree that it is much better than this one. --I gobbled up all the Albom books I could get my hands on at the time. I enjoyed For One More Day the most. :)


Thank you for taking the time to write a comment. You are fabulous! :)
