Anyone who knows me personally, knows that I am one for lists. Lists for housework, shopping, jobs, blogs…in fact anything that needs doing goes on a list! I was browsing the available books on Blogging For Books and saw a book about lists. I was intrigued and looking forward to it arriving.
Go Ahead & Like It by Jacqueline Suskin is a book to inspire thoughts and contemplation, with one thing in mind; things you like. In addition to Jacqueline talking us through her process of making lists and how it makes her feel, the book is full of lists of what she has liked at certain times of her life. She encourages us to think about the small things that are worth appreciating and the big things that we take for granted. Negative events or bad situations can be turned around by drawing out the positives and thinking about what we can actually like.
I love the lists that are written over a photograph. This would make an awesome scrapbook feature so I’m storing that one for future use.
The only thing that could be improved is the amount of space in the book for the reader to write their own lists. At the back of the book there is a page that allows you to begin listing your likes. I just think that this would have been much better if it had blank pages throughout the book too, with prompts for list making.
I received this book from the Blogging for Books program in exchange for this review.
