Review – Don’t Forget to Sing in the Lifeboats

In these somewhat volatile times of earthquakes, hurricanes and rocky roads, I sometimes find it very comforting to turn to favorite familiar people, places and things. Some of the things that fit into that category for me are my old gray sweatshirt without the zipper pull, but that still zips, sunflowers and roses and the scent of rosemary, unique art, favorite photos both old and new, and special books filled with amazing sayings. These are a few of my favorite things. What are yours?

That being said it should come as no surprise that I’m a great fan of book stores and as an author who has experienced the feeling of seeing a poster in front of a few of them with my name and book-signing details on them, I have some fond memories of some very special book stores that are now gone. I spent many hours browsing in Waldenbooks and a special local Chapters Book Store and Borders Book Stores.

Soon Borders will join the others in our memories and our hearts but I have one very special book to remind me of its wonderful ambiance and all the hours I spent browsing. The title of this book, Don’t Forget to Sing in the Lifeboats by Kathryn & Ross Petras , jumped off the white cover and caught my attention, maybe because it was the last one on the now very empty shelf, and maybe because it seemed very appropriate as I took a few last glances around the now half empty Borders Store. I know that this book will always remind me of the wonderful book stores that are disappearing everywhere and I also know that it has already become one of my familiar, wonderful, comforting things I’ll turn to often.

It is described on the cover as Uncommon Wisdom for Uncommon Times and here are some of my favorite words of wisdom from this amazingly comforting book filled with quotes from many famous and maybe some not-so-famous people.

This little book is so inspirational, I had a hard time choosing which quotes to include in this article. Even the quotes on the cover were inspirational. It’s one of my special comfort tools and I chose to review it and I recommend it to anyone who wants to add a very special little book to your very special favorite comfortable familiar things.
