Friday Find – Inside The O’Briens

There is a meme where the one friend says to the other: “I just read this book, it ripped my heart apart, had me openly sobbing, I was so engrossed I couldn’t eat or even stop thinking about it……Here….., read it”.

Well, I have read that book …….. Inside the O’Briens, by Lisa Genova, she is well known for Still Alice.  The subject of this book is Huntington’s Disease and follows one family’s journey through this disease – it is both heartbreaking and uplifting……If you don’t read anything else this summer……Read It!!

BookBub

Recommended By: Carli

Do you love to read? Are you one of those E-reader lovers who has a Kindle, Nook or other reading device? Because I recently discovered a fantastic spot called BookBub!

It’s free to sign up, and each day you are sent anywhere from three to seven books (mostly of notable authors but it’s always nice to discover new ones!) that are either free or $1.99. So far, I have downloaded four and have been super happy with each! It’s very easy AND what a great way to save some money on your summer reading…. Maybe you can find a good use for it elsewhere…like for new sandals or fudgesicles! 😉

You can find their website to sign up here.

 

Friday Find, Tuesdays With Morrie

Today’s Friday Find is my favourite book “Tuesdays with Morrie”:

“an old man, a young man, and life’s greatest lesson”

And that is really all you need to know. It is a simple and modest book and yet life changing, beautiful, heartwarming and breathtaking.

It’s my bible, my go-to-book, my feel-good-book, my gain-perspective book.

Get it, read it, add it to your bucket list.

“So many people walk around with a meaningless life. They seem half-asleep, even when they’re busy doing things they think are important. This is because they’re chasing the wrong things. The way you get meaning into your life is to devote yourself to loving others, devote yourself to your community around you, and devote yourself to creating something that gives you purpose and meaning.”
