The Next Thing on My List

I started (and finished) The Next Thing on My List, which is this month's pick for book club. It was a fun, quick read. I read this pretty early (book club is at the end of the month), so I hope to remember the book enough by the end of the month to discuss it.

I like the idea of having a life list - things to do in my life. When I was in high school we made a life list in one of my classes - I'm not sure where the list is - maybe I will try to dig it out from its hiding spot. Or maybe I will make a new list.

The idea of making and doing my own list is intriguing, but I wonder how or if I would complete someone else's list. Could I do that? Really go beyond myself, my wants, desires and do things that I have no interest in? I guess it would depend on the person and the circumstances.
I do recommend this book. It was fast and interesting. I liked the characters - very believable. Enjoy!

Wow, on your recommendation I'm going to get this book. I've had a list for years, I call it
"s#*% I need to do before I die"...or simply "it's on my list". Now with the new movie "The Bucket List" it seems to be all the rage to have a "list". I think they copied me...ya..uh huh.
