I think we all know how books make a great Christmas present. Who doesn't enjoy sitting by a fire or out on the beach and reading a book? I know I do and I hate that I don't have the luxury time to do so. And it's always better to get a book that someone has given you. I think the perfect books to get family members or friends are any of the books from the Chicken Soup for the Soul series. They just make you feel good. Luckily I'm a part of their blogger review network and I get to share one of the latest editions: Think Positive! Here's a little more about it:
Title: Chicken Soup for the Soul: Think Positive
Author: Jack Canfield, Mark Victor Hansen & Amy Newmark
Genre: self help
Publisher: Chicken Soup for the Soul
101 Inspirational Stories about Counting Your Blessings and Having a Positive Attitude
Every cloud has a silver lining. With its 101 stories of optimism, faith, and strength, this book will encourage readers to stay positive during challenging times and in their everyday lives. Readers will be inspired by these real-life stories from people just like them, taking a positive attitude to the ups and downs of life, and remembering to be grateful and count their blessings. This book continues Chicken Soup for the Soul's focus on inspiration and hope and its stories remind us that each day holds something to be thankful for. A great start to the New Year.
My Take: I must say I decided to start reading this book at the right time. Lately, there has been a whole lot going on in my life to really get me down. Sometimes it helps to talk to someone, sometimes it helps to write, and sometimes it helps to read something inspirational. I like that this book is divided up into different sections, like "health challenges", "attitude adjustment" and "counting your blessings", so you are able to read stories for the section that speaks to you the most. This is just one of those feel good books that you have to read and that you will want to share once you are finished reading it. I would recommend it as a perfect gift for any mom, dad, grandmom, aunt, friend, whomever, that you think needs a pick me up/feel good book! I'm sure they will get inspired!
