Finished listening to this book last weekend. Very empowering and thought provoking. Kermit the Frog makes an appearance which made me laugh. ⭐️⭐️⭐️

#24B4Monday - Update

Well I‘ve only managed to read 5.5 hours so far. 😅 I was in a little bit of a low mood on Friday so didn‘t get much read then. I‘m much better now thanks! 😊
I did finish this book today and I recommend it. ❤️
Now I‘m reading Meet Me at the Museum and so far I‘m enjoying it. Reminds me a little bit of 84 Charing Cross Road which was also a fabulous book. 🥰📚

I rate this as a pick because I think the sentiment of these notes is amazing and it‘s a worthwhile project. I know they were trying to get people from all walks of life, but the most boring letter was written by an architect. I think the selections of some of the people could have been better or more inspiring, some with better letters
