    I've been meaning to, since they've been popular long enough that they're probably reasonably good books.  Unless they're something I've been reading already, I don't read bestsellers - I hope this is my only snobbish characteristic. But I digress.

    She reminded me to focus on the good in people and the good in Life, instead of getting trapped in negativity.
    Even the optimists among us can use that reminder sometimes.  If only for that reason, I'm going to have to read those books.

      Do start with the first one and read them straight through.  Although each book is complete in itself, the cumulative effect makes everything even funnier. :)  The incident with the car in the first book made my hair curl in fright.
