A Book Tout

I work in a library. That alone, means I have access to tons of books and usuallly get to see and read them before the public does. So I was ecstatic when one of my most favorite authors' newest books came in with the book order recently. Debbie Macomber has been writing for over 25 years and I've been a fan for about the same number of years. Her books are delightful and fun. She saw me through many a deployment when John was on active duty. Her newest book is called Twenty Wishes. The basic premise is devoted to writing a list of the things we want to accomplish in life. And then to accomplish those things. Your list doesn't have to be grand (become the President of the United States or star in a major motion picture). It can be as simple as "dance in the rain with a loved one" or "buy a pair of red cowboy boots" - these are some of the things the heroine of Debbie's book has on her list. The heroine found a pair of red cowboy boots at a thrift store and bought them. And she danced in the rain with her foster child. See? Simple!
I recommend this book to anyone! That's right - ANYONE! After reading this book, see if you don't feel inspired to write your own 20 wishes list. I did!

Hmmm, That sounds like a really interesting book. I have never read any of that authors' books.
I think I would really have to think and ponder about the 20 different wishes.
P.S. I like your book review. Do you think you will make it a staple on your blog? I think you should!

Thanks for the book recommendation! I love the premise of her book---very much like: what would you attempt if you knew you could not fail....

And I'm working on that tag you recently gave me. Thanks blogirl-friend!

That is a terrific idea about you giving a book review on your blog!
