Day 4: Book that makes you cry

Tuesdays with Morrie by Mitch Albom

There are MANY books that have brought tears to my eyes and many more that reduce me to fits of weeping so that I cannot even read the words on the page.
This is one of the second group.
It's a thesis...an up close and personal analysis of the journey to life's final adventure - death. It the final class for Morrie and the first of a new set of life lessons for Mitch Albom as he listens to his college professor's last words of wisdom.
It's poignant, moving, and heart-wrenching. It's about love and life and all the things that get in the way of those greatest lessons we can ever learn.
Watch out, those of you who dare crack open the pages of this brief, but powerful read. You'll need a Kleenex box - or TWO - handy. :)
