Book Review: The What if? Book of Questions by Miggs Burroughs


"What if the most important moment in your life is this one? Can you handle the power it gives you to choose how you will spend the next one?" Thus begins The What if? Book of Questions to some of your most revealing answers on love and health, wealth and happiness by Miggs Burroughs. This little book is full of provocative and thoughtful questions that will really make you think.

It's a small book ~ less than 5x7 in size and only 193 pages. Each two-page spread has a question on the left and an image (clipart) on the right. It's simple really, but the thoughts it provokes are deep. "What if you wake up with no country, job, partner or religion? Who are you without these things?" Think about it. Those are the things that many of us use to define ourselves. Who are we really without these things? It makes you think.

The What if? Book of Questions would make a great selection for a small group discussion. Pick a few questions and talk through them. It would be quite interesting to hear a variety of responses to some of these questions. It's certainly not for everyone; my husband didn't get the point of it at all! And it's not something to sit down and read all in one sitting. But I think it's an interesting book that I will return to often. I'm hoping to even use it next time I get together with friends, to see how we all react to some of these questions.

My Rating: 4/5

Getting back to blogging

It seems that blogging has dropped to the bottom of my list for the past year, and was pretty low for the year or two prior to that. I love to read, and am continuing to do so, but as my regular readers know I haven't been around much. My last blog post was almost a year ago!!

There are many things that have taken me away from blogging. Work has been much more challenging and interesting these past few years, but that means I really don't want to get back on the computer when I get home at night - or on the weekends.

Family life has been more busy with kids having multiple activities in the evenings, leaving little time to just hang out and write about the books that I read.

I will admit to a bit of a Facebook addiction, which means way too much time spent scrolling through my newsfeed instead of doing something more productive. This is one of the things I'm working on and hoping that this will free up some time for getting back to the blog.

Overall, life is good. Work is …
