Tuesdays with Morrie – The only book I have read twice

If I am ever asked to suggest just one book to read which is thin and tiny, has a compelling narrative and is highly engrossing, then out of all the books i have read before and all the books I am yet to read in the future, i will choose

“ TUESDAYS WITH MORRIE”

I learnt about this book from one of the must read lists available online. And soon I bought one for myself from a second hand book store in New Delhi. My sister and my roommate read it before me and appreciated it. Weeks later, I read it too.

The cover was exceptionally ordinary, with a maroon border and pale yellow skin. In stark contrast, what it presented inside was a life changing experience. And I can say it with utmost clarity and conviction that I was no longer the same person (in good means) after I finished reading it. Never before I read a book as poignant and powerfully moving as Tuesdays with Morrie.

I started recommending it to friends and family who wanted to pick up the habit of reading with an ‘easy to read’ book. I don’t know how many of them acted on the suggestion.

I gave my first copy of “Tuesdays with Morrie” to a younger cousin. I decided to buy one more for myself. But to my surprise on the last day of our Creative Writing Class, I got my second paperback copy in a form of a present for a Story Writing Competition i participated in. I was lucky to have received it from a teacher who is no less great than Morrie.

I read the book again, on the last gone Tuesday. And this time I read it really slow — in little sips reflecting on each and every lesson that Morrie Schwartz had to offer. After reading the book from cover to cover and marking the important quotes & dialogue exchanges with a pencil, i embraced it. I couldn’t stop thinking about this book since I finished it.

I was wondering how rewarding this memoir can turn out to be, if everyone can experience the joy of reading it I and can get to capture the simplicity beyond life’s complexities with the help of this beautiful book.

Morrie Schwartz with Mitch Albom. Mitch is writing life lessons by Morrie, who is on the verge of dying but is ten times happier than Mitch.

And hence I took to compiling the wonderful excerpts from this gem in the form of a blog. I hope it compels you to read one of the most beautiful and profound books the mankind has to offer and you introduce yourself with a feeling you were alienated to , for so long.
