Book of the Month:
Last month I posted information about my book, YOU CAN'T RUIN MY DAY. I like to change what I write about each month in this section but having received a glowing unsolicited email just a few days ago from a reader, about YOU CAN'T RUIN MY DAY, I had to share it. The slightly edited email, is below.



Subject: LOVE your book!

Dear Allen,


You Can’t Ruin My Day is one of my favorite books of all time – and I read a lot! (My master’s degree is in reading.) I first borrowed a copy from the library, but like it so much I bought my own copy to keep, highlight, mark, and reread.

You wrote like a genius. I can’t imagine all the time, research, effort, and love you put into that book, but I sure do know how much I appreciate it!

I already ordered a copy for a good friend – she deserves your wisdom. But then, so do many of my friends.
 😊


Your writing is remarkable:
• The chapter title tells us what to do
• You have a celebrity quote about the subject
• You stories illustrate your point so beautifully
• Your follow up reenforces your point
• You find a Lighten Up joke that illustrates your point.
• You include so many resources that fit in with your points
• Your personal stories are especially appealing
• You have stories about others that illustrate as well
• 52 main ideas, and each fully contained so the reader can easily read one in a short 5 – 6 minute time
• I could hardly put your book down!
NOW do you see why I believe your writin
g is remarkable, and you are a genius??


You are amazing, Allen.

Thank you so MUCH for your beautiful gift to the world – your caring to share what you have learned, and the huge effort you put into it to make the world a better place. It works!

Much appreciation and gratitude to you,


Liz Northrop
