Following along with Boof’s 40 Day Challenge leading up to her 40th birthday, day 11 –

11) A book that made me cry

I wrote earlier this week about feeling negatively towards books that make me cry by manipulating my emotions (“Sister’s Keeper” and “Beatrice & Virgil”). I cry a lot during good books and movies (and TV shows), but when I read this topic, my first thought was of “Little Bee” by Chris Cleave. What a beautifully written, sad story that was. And no negative feelings attached to it. Good stuff.

#11 on my list of 40 Things is: Write More Letters.  Again, not very specific or measurable, but something I made a conscious effort to do. I still try to write letters and send snail mail, because I know that getting mail other than bills or junk is so much fun.  (I don’t hardly get bills anymore, because everything is online! Mostly junkmail!)

Well, I’m going to write a few letters RIGHT NOW because I even have some cool stamps!  So much fun… (Happy Birthday, Troy!)

Off to read!
