Chicken Soup for the Soul: Tough Times, Tough People (Chicken Soup for the Soul Publishing, LLC, June 2009, 978-1-935096-35-1, $14.95) reminds us that tough times won’t last, but tough people will. Tough People is all about overcoming adversity, pulling together, making do with less, facing challenges, and finding new joys in a simpler life. This new collection shares tales of people who have been laid off, lost their homes, and endured wrenching life changes, but discovered the underlying gifts in their new situations. More time at home with family, creative “staycations,” more satisfying job opportunities, and renewed gratitude for health and life are just a few of the silver linings these survivors have learned to cherish.
I'm not a huge fan of non-fiction books, even though I seem to read them a lot nowadays. I prefer fast paced thrillers that I make me forget my problems. However with the Chicken Soup for the Soul books, they are so easy to navigate, I tend to really enjoy them. I love that they are inspiring, written by regular every day people & that each story is short. That is my favorite part. With kids, it is so much easier to read a quick story, book mark it & go to the next chapter.
I have great news, I have 2 additional copies of Chicken Soup for the Soul: Tough Times, Tough People: 101 Stories about Overcoming the Economic Crisis and Other Challenges to giveaway to my readers.
