More Chicken Soup for the Soul: Two new books!

One good thing about being a part of the Chicken Soup for the Soul blogger network is I never have a shortage of books to read. The greatest thing about these books are there are a compilation of short essays. You can pick and choose what you want to read. Many of you know that I love to read or browse and read my favorite stories and then I usually pass the books on to friends and family members. The latest two books I have to share with you are going to be definite gifts and they came at the perfect time.

The first is Chicken Soup for the Soul: Here comes the Bride

101 Stories of Love, Laughter and Family
The wedding day, and each day leading up to it, is a special and exciting time. In this collection of 101 heartwarming and hilarious stories, brides and grooms, families and friends share their memories of the big day. With stories about everything from the proposal, to the planning, to actual wedding day events, the honeymoon, and all the joys and frustrations in between, this book will delight and encourage any bride or newlywed. A great gift for bridal showers, engagements, and weddings!
This book would be perfect for my friend. She just got married for the second time and there are all kinds of essays in the book that relate to the new bride, the older bride and even the second time around. I think my favorite section was the Marital Mishaps. We had a few mishaps at our wedding, including the wind blowing all the favors off the tables!

The second book is Chicken Soup for the Soul: Say Hello to a Better Body: Weight Loss and Fitness for Women over 50.

Inspiring Chicken Soup for the Soul stories and accessible leading-edge medical information from Dr. Suzanne Koven of Harvard Medical School. Women over 50 fight menopause, creaky joints, busy lives, and other factors that interfere with their quests for weight control and fitness. These advice-filled stories from women over 50 who have figured out how to get fit are combined with Dr. Koven's practical advice and medical information. You won't have any more excuses!
Now personally, I know I'm getting older but I'm not quite to this age yet but there is nothing wrong with being over 50. As a matter of fact, this is the perfect book for my mom. She has been battling a few health issues and as a person living with MS maintaining a healthy weight and staying fit are very important. I love that this book not only has the essays but it also offers practical advice and support from a Harvard Medical School Doctor!
