MY BOOK BEGINNING
I have spent the last few years collecting letters from complete strangers.-- The Things You Would Have Said: The Chance to Say What You Always Wanted Them to Know, edited by Jackie Hooper.
This is the book edition of the popular blog by the same name. It contains letters written by real people to others who have passed out of their lives -- parents, friends, enemies, their childhood selves, etc. The letters are incredible.
This has huge Mother's Day potential.
Here's my Book Beginning post: Enjoy!ReplyDelete
That does have interesting potential. Sounds like you might need to have a box of tissue handy when you read.ReplyDelete

Reading letters from strangers to people that you neither know? I don't know if I could do that... It feels like reading a personal diary...ReplyDelete
Anyway, thank for hosting BBF!
