Thank you very much for this book muzette! It arrived some days ago, but I forgot to journal it. Shame on me! And apologies to you. I'm looking forward to reading this book.

This book is about Morrie Schwartz, a professor at Brandeis University, who has been diagnosed with ALS (Lou Gehrig's Disease). Morrie's life will not last much longer. Mitch Albom, a former student, sees his favourite teacher on television in a programme about this destructive disease. After he renews contact, the two meet on Tuesdays and talk about subjects like family, aging, love, death, regrets and forgiving.

Sweet little book, it makes one think about what is *really* important in life.

Sending to a fellow BC-er in Spijkenisse as a surprise. Enjoy!

Oh, wat a wonderful surprise! I found a beautiful little packet in my mail box. It was almost a shame to open it. But inside was this lovely book. Thank you Qimp!
I've read the first pages of the book recently, in my copy of "The five persons you meet in heaven". It seems to me that this book is even better. I'll be sure to read it with lots of Kleenex nearby :)

Part of me thinks this book is a horrible tear jerker which is very capable of pulling my emotional strings. But overall I love this book, and I fully agree with this review:

"Every page of this beautiful, moving little book shines with the warmth of unembarrassed love."

I think I'm going to buy my own copy. I already own some chapters of it, in my copy of "The Five People You Meet In Heaven". This is one of those books which I love to let it travel around, touching people's hearts.

I'm reserving this book for AnnevO; it's on her wishlist and she's expecting it as an international bookring. But perhaps she will like to read it now.

I loved this book! Since I wanted to read this book at a special moment, I saved it for a very special trip to Scotland. It was the perfect book for the occasion. Morrie was a very wise man, who understood which things are really important.

I gave this book to a friend, who will read it and pass it on.
