Book #50 - PS I love you by Cecelia Ahern

I actually started this book a while back and did not come back to it until I finished my two prior reviews. The main character's husband just died. She of course thought that she would spend the rest of her days with him, but he ended up with a brain tumor and she left her job to take care of him. Upon his death, she finds out that he left 10 different envelopes for the next 10 months with her parents. Inside each envelope, which she is not to open until the first day of the designated month, her hubs assigns her some task that he thinks will enable her to go on with her life and help her cope with her grief. It could be very sad in places, but honestly I think it portrayed grief in a very real way. She did not suddenly snap her fingers, find a new man and a new job and all was ducky. She had her good days where she thought that she would just about get through this and then other days, good job or not, that she just flat did not want to get out of bed.

I reviewed another book by this author called Rosie Dunne. I recommend them both. You can pick either of them up at the Big Red Bullseye that we all know and love.

I am pumped that I actually made this goal of 50 books in a year. I am still reading so I imagine I'll just see how many I end up with by the end of December. Granted I am hardly reading great works of fiction, but I figure that every moment I spend with a book in hand is one less that I am staring blindly at the tv and that's always a good thing.

That sounds like a good one - I shall go searching at the weekend because we don't have the bullseye shop here... :)

Way to go SFG!

You met your goal for 2006! I totally admire that you set to read 50 books this year and have met your goal well before the year was over!

Damn girl. I was just happy I got about 10 read this year. Well I'm kinda cheating since some were textbooks.

Girl...I'm going to have to fix your freakin' website because if that damn pop up box comes up AGAIN I'm gonna scream.
