Two of the Greatest Books Ever Written
I'm not sure if anyone who reads this site of mine has noticed yet but I happen to be an avid sports fan. I live for fall and football season and pass my time through the summer with a healthy dose of baseball, but one thing that I do regardless of what time of the year it is, is to watch the show The Sports Reporters on ESPN on Sunday mornings at 9:00 a.m. central standard time. On this show there is one reporter who leads a panel of 3 other reporters in discussion about sports related topics and issues of today and yesteryear. A reporter that frequents this show with his good repore and wit is Mitch Album of the Detroit Free Press. Now to the heart of the matter. Not so long ago my Dad went to the book store and bought one of his books called The Five People You Meet in Heaven. I was slightly skeptical at first, but after some time spent in the intro I was hooked and didn't stop reading it until I finished the whole thing. The moral of the book is no matter how little you think you affect the world or others your always doing something to affect others. I was enthralled by the good nature of the book and wanted more. I found out that he had another book out on the shelves and made my plan to capture all of the prose found in it as well. Christmas time was just around the corner and I went to my local book store and picked up a copy for my Dad, having a dual purpose of course, and gave it to him for Christmas. I read it before he could. It is titled Tuesdays with Morry. I have written all of this to say one thing as follows: if you are looking for a book that may change your life or might lead you in a direction that could change others lives, go buy a Bible, but if your looking to have a good read that is based on life experience and true love and compassion for man kind go buy these to books. Mitch Album may well be my favorite new author.
