The end of your life book club by Will Schwalbe

What are you reading? - this is what Will Schwabe asks his mother Mary Ann while waiting at Memorial Sloan-Kettering Cancer Center.  This remarkable book, is a conversation about reading, and cancer treatment.  Mary Ann has been diagnosed with advanced pancreatic cancer - often fatal in six months.  She manages to survive longer than that, and this is not a book so much about her cancer struggle, as it is about reading and the enjoyment of books.  The book has a marvelous reading list at the back of the book, some of which i've actually read, but gives great food for thought about my next book of importance.  This book is a celebration!
