Tuesday’s with Morrie

I imagine almost everyone will have at least heard of Tuesday's with Morrie by Mitch Albom – and many will have read it.  If you haven't – yet – I would highly recommend it.  It is a life-affirming book although you might need to have some tissues handy. The book came out in 1997 but don't be put off by that – the oldies are often goodies!

It is a true story of Albom's 14 Tuesday visits to his old college professor who was dealing with his incurable Lou Gehrig's disease.  Through these meetings Albom re-thought about what was important in life. 

PS  Reading this back, I am sounding incredibly earnest – and boring.  But the book isn't, I promise!

  3. I read this book a long time ago and it was so hard to get through! Very good and touching but so sad as well.

  4. A friend gave me this book and I'm so glad she did, because I never would have picked it up to read on my own. It was great, and I should read it again.

  5. I haven't read this yet, but I really should. My husband has it, and he has read it several times already. :)

  6. Carol, I was not sure about this book. I would like to pick it up on your recommendation.

  7. This is such a beautiful story. Iv been trying to make my boyfriend read it for about 6 months now! It is sitting on the coffee table waiting to be read - I might have to unplug the tv and offer endless beers as bribery but I know once he starts he wont be able to put it down.

  8. I'm afraid I haven't heard of this one until now, thanks for the recommendation. Thanks for popping over to our weekly book blog hop this week xx

  9. I read this book a long time ago and enjoyed it. My book club read Albom's "Have a Little Faith" last year and I liked it as well.
    Happy Reading!

  10. I haven't read anything by this author, but I hear his books are very good.

    Thanks for the linky post. I love seeing all these books to add to my TBR pile that is already toppling.

    I am in the list as #4.
