book by Robert D. Smith
review by Joanna
[Travel Reads: These are books that one or both of us have read and found fascinating, inspiring, or just plain entertaining. So we thought we would share them with you! ]
20,000 Days And Counting is the kind of book you could read on a short flight. Or on a hotel balcony while you sip your morning coffee. Or on the beach when you get tired of playing in the ocean. That’s not where I read it.
I read it in the library during the hour of my workday allocated for lunch. While the basic gist of this book sounds depressing: realizing how many days you’ve already lived and that there is a finite number of them left, Robert was able to communicate that message in a way that inspires the reader to plan for those remaining days - to plan for the life you want. So if you find yourself still trying to figure out what you want to do with your life, realize what you want your life to be is not what it currently is, or are simply suffering from a mild to severe case of ennui, this might be the book for you. Did I mention it only takes about an hour to read?
If you’ve read this book, what did you think? Did you read it because we mentioned it here? Even better, do you have your own inspiring book suggestions? Let us know in the comments!
