Subtitled: Letters to my younger self.

This was a book club pick and I actually had it on my shelf! (I hardly buy any books – hello? I work in a library). I had originally bought this book when I thought I’d participate in an online book discussion group but since I couldn’t ever get it together, this little book was sitting there waiting for me.

This is a quick, inspirational little book. About a page of biographical stuff about the person and then their letter. Lots of famous and successful women are included – some of my personal favorites and some I hadn’t heard of. This would make a great graduation present for a young woman (either for college or high school).

My one complaint – it ended too abruptly. I finished Trisha Yearwood’s letter and turned the page and then boom – nothing. I was let down there weren’t more letters to read. And reading this has made me want to write a letter to my younger self. Might be a good scrapbook page . . .
