Chicken Soup For the Soul: Inspiration for the Young at Heart

I have been reading through the latest book released by Chicken Soup for the Soul.  It's titled Inspiration For the Young at Heart, written for anyone aged 60+.

I still have a few years left before I get my AARP card, but it hasn't kept me from enjoying these stories!

The 101 entries are broken down into 9 sections; New Adventures~ ~Turning Back the Clock~ ~ Never too Late for Romance~ ~New Careers~ ~When a Husband Retires~ ~The Privileges of Age ~ ~New Passions~ ~Who're You Calling Old?~ and ~Go For It!

I had to smile as I read what it was like for a grandmother as she braved the task of toy shopping for her grandchildren.  I inwardly cheered for the senior who went back to school.  I could only imagine how it felt for the newly retired gentleman as he tried to make himself useful, but his wife's description of his behavior made me laugh out loud.  Another couple packed up and decided to go Workamping in the desert.

I am sure this book would be a great encouragement for most seniors.  It would also make a great gift for a parent or grandparent, or a friend who is retiring.

As usual, Chicken Soup For the Soul did a wonderful job collecting a great variety of stories.  The author's voices are genuine, the stories are real.  Turning the pages is like visiting with friends.

If you love a good dose of Chicken Soup style encouragement, be sure to follow them on facebook and twitter.  They also have an email newsletter, which you can sign up for on their website.  (
