    Another charming collection by Elizabeth Berg! Buy the audiobook, narrated by the author. Her voice is so calming. More to follow.

    The author began to randomly post thoughts on face book, and this book contains some of her writings. Filled with joy and the wonderment of small things such as a baby bird -- with "thread like feet" -- I love that description -- and, the sound of children on a playground, I smiled throughout.Many pages contain conversations with her dog, and the love of animals shines through.I own many of Berg's books, and as I work my way through organizing my 3,000 plus books, I will be sure to put her books aside to read. In the meantime, of course, I went to the library and brought home two that caught my attention.If you long to read the joy of everyday pleasures, this book is for you.

    I love most all Elizabeth Berg books and have read many off her list. This one was a collection of some of her Facebook posts and it's just so endearing. She writes about the littlest things in life that mean so much...pets, nature, watching people, drinking coffee, seeing friends, loved ones, just random thoughts that inspire you to pay attention, think more and above all to be kind and gentle in this life we're all living. It's the best book to just put somewhere near and pick up periodically because you could read a couple pages and just have faith that things will turn out ok... It's a fast read but one of the books i will never give away because the thoughts in it are just too good to not have. Bonus that i have a signed copy from a friend who went to a book signing of hers at our local library. I'm sad that i missed it because she seems like such a genuine, wonderful human. Read this book!

    If you like Elizabeth Berg's novels, you'll like or maybe even love this book. Its a collection of some of her Facebook postings. I'd read some of them on Facebook, and didn't find out she'd done this book until the other day, and then I immediately requested it from my library. She always writes with such a down to earth honesty, like she's just talking to you. The posts are about all kinds of things. Her dogs, neighborhood kids, her frequent walks, hummingbirds, food, you name it. Each topic is just a short page or two long, some just a paragraph, but they all make you smile or laugh or wipe a quiet tear. As I wrote in a comment just as I started reading it, I am going to buy a copy of this book to send to a friend who I know will love it. Some of our messages to each other remind me of these writings. Just little stories from our lives, about the little things that are some of the best parts. I can't wait to hear what she thinks of it.

    I bought this after seeing Elizabeth Berg give a reading at my local library. She's one of my favorite authors. This book made me laugh, cry, and feel fuzzy-warm while looking at the world with childlike wonder. I probably won't be putting it on my bookshelf any time soon; this one will stay on the nightstand for rainy days or when I want a dose of happy.

    This book is a collection of Facebook posts by the author. She is very observant and sensitive to her surroundings. She takes pleasure in the small details of life that we are often going too fast and too busy to notice Very enjoyable and quick read

    I love anything by Elizabeth Berg. This was especially nice in these trying times. Her Facebook essay's just clocked full of real life but always with a positive and bright spin. Heartfelt notes to her readers. This is how she really is, not just words.

    I loved this little book. It is a collection of Berg's Facebook posts, musings about daily life. It makes me want to enjoy life more fully. I think I will read it every year on my birthday to just get the year going in a good direction.

    Another fantastic book by my favorite authorElizabeth Berg's writing always makes me feel happy (pun intended)! She gently reminds us how taking time to appreciate nature and animals soothes one's soul.

    I've read most of these via her Facebook page but they are enjoyable the second, third, fourth time around. It's just a great little book with heartfelt, funny and quirky stories about her life, being a woman, being a kind human being and chit-chats with her dog. A great gift for a friend. A bedside book for sure.

    I follow Elizabeth Berg on Facebook, and find that many of her postings move me greatly, in a down-to-earth way. So, when I saw that she'd compiled some of those postings, I was excited...and when I read them, not disappointed. I will keep this little book by my bedside to re-read some of her musings...

    I wish I were as optimistic and life-loving as Elizabeth Berg. A lovely pick-me-up.

    A happy and poignant collection of posts. I rushed through them, but they would also be good to savor one a day. Ms. Berg has such a beautiful and poetic way of making ordinary things become extraordinary pieces of art.

    Like a warm cup of coffee and a snuggle blanket...I really enjoyed this book. I read a few pieces at a time, and it made me glad, again, to be a human on this wonderful, crazy planet.

    her entry regarding her mother's passing and her first birthday without her mother really helped me.
