To be honest, I found most of this memoir about grief underwhelming. I feel a little bad saying that about a book about something as sad and intimate as your husband dying, but there it is. There were some occasional lovely turns of phrase. I also found reading about this rich white lady's unexamined life of privilege to be tedious and all the stuff about the American health care system fucked up but simultaneously not interesting?

Prairiegirl_reading I dfn‘d this. Completely agreed about the unexamined and privileged life. I just couldn‘t. Then I gave the book away which I rarely do. 1d
Cathythoughts I think the title is perfect.... how one comes to terms with death & being a widow ... magical thinking describes the first year, privileged or not ... 1d

It wasn't the best book of the series.
It only started getting good towards the end most of it bored me to death.

I‘ve been so caught up with life that I haven‘t been on top of updating my #BFC status!
This past week, I was able to meet my fitness goals. I walked QUITE a bit. I haven‘t finished any more books, however, because my reading focus has been on articles for homework. Currently reading the tagged book for pleasure! @wanderinglynn

This should tackle the "something with a death".
I thought I would have liked this better than I did owing to the subject matter. But unfortunately I found some parts of this a bit dull. ?

Well this was thought provoking. An investigation of the industry which has arisen around death by a practising mortician with many frank tales of her experiences. A impassioned plea for us as individuals to engage more with death, to become more aware of deaths inevitability, to plan for our passing and how we wish to our bodies to be treat on our death and participate more in the ceremonies associated with the passing of friends and relatives.

britt_brooke This was such an eye-opening read. Loved it! 7d
AutumnRLS I really loved her From Here to Eternity so I ordered this one. Haven't read it yet, but looking forward to it. Also looking forward to her new one that's coming out. 7d
SamAnne I really appreciated this book. She has a great interview on Terry Gross‘ Fresh Air from a few years ago. 6d

This could be the prettiest book I own. The faces within the tree trunks of the cover is only a hint of the beauty inside where tree roots have hands reaching out to support its own tree as well as neighboring trees. It‘s a beautiful story about the cycle of life.

marleed @Recommended4Reading @StayCurious The pic really doesn‘t do the book justice. I used to cry when I read it aloud to my kids. It was always the book I brought when volunteering to read in a classroom. 7d
Recommended4Reading @marleed--its gonna make me cry??? Rut row...(tee hee). Did you ever read The Giving Tree? 6d
marleed @Recommended4Reading Oh I have that one too! I never gave a thought to displaying them together- both using aging trees for metaphors. 6d

The last chapter is full of quips and unfinished thoughts. The final jottings of a great man. How sad. 😥
