Chicken Soup for the Soul: Reader's Choice Review

Chicken Soup for the Soul: Reader's Choice
With an earlier review of an updated version of the original Chicken Soup for the Soul, I also had the chance to review their Reader's Choice book. The book is roughly 50 stories taken out of other titles in the 250+ book series. Where does that leave the other half of the stories? That is the great part of this book. Those new stories expose the effect of the original stories. You read that right. Regular folks affected by the original stories share their soul and talk about how the original story helped change their world, for the better. It is a great way to see how these books truly have an effect on the people out there in the world.

Just like in the other books in the series, the stories run anywhere from a single page to between 5-10 at the high end. The newer stories tend to be longer as they have to tell the story and make a connection to the original story. Nothing too long and always a quick read. I really like the dual-story format of the book and it adds to the enjoyable of the title. Sure, all the stories are of the feel good type, but the cause and effect style is a great way to present the material, even if the new story is presented before the original.

I don't have a giveaway associated with the review here but there are some other bloggers who do. Here are a few worth checking out: Give Oh Giveaway (ends 9/6), Saving Common Cents (9/3), DebsHere (9/20), and Mom and More (9/13). There are more.
