Friday Books: More Books!

The End of Your Life Book Club by Will Schwalbe

I really enjoyed this book. The author, Will Schwalbe, ends up in a book club with his mother. They are the only two members. She has cancer, and he sits with her through her chemo treatments. That's usually when they read and discuss books. She is so wise, and can see the deep messages in books. She also shares her general life wisdom with her son. It's very touching.

They mention a LOT of books, and make them all sound fabulous. I now have a much longer TBR list, thanks to this book. I love getting book recommendations from well-read, intelligent people, and these two are definitely that. You'll love Schwalbe's mother, and also love how he takes her lessons to heart.

This is a really good book about books, as well as about life and our inter-dependence.
