Mini-Review: Tuesdays with Morrie
Tuesdays with Morrie by Mitch Albom
Genre: Non-Fiction
Pages: 192 pages
Excerpt:
"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." (43) --Morrie

My Rating:
Mini-Review: Tuesdays with Morrie
Quick Thoughts: Thought-provoking. Morrie.  Life.  Learning.
This is an older book that I think about from time to time.  It's about life, love, and everything in between.  The cover does it no justice.  The title doesn't scream run and go get me, but if you pick it up, you won't be able to put it down.  Mitch recounts the time spent with a professor dying from ALS.  It reads like any other fiction story and stays true to the story-telling that Albom is known for.  It isn't depressing or too matter-of-fact.  It hits the perfect spot.  I loved it so much that I assigned it for a few of my ninth graders when I as teaching.  Not one of them wanted to read it and not one of them wanted it to end.  It's a short read that will change your life for the better.  Not because you take it to hard, but because the story is just so touching.
