Book/Other Recommendations Needed

I have a very good friend who was just diagnosed with stage four liver cancer.

I want to get her some reading material, but it needs to be something that you pick up and put down without losing the thread of the plot. I am thinking uplifting short stories or interesting magazines.

Any ideas are appreciated. Thank you in advance.

Chicken Soup for the Soul books have short, uplifting stories. There are many different titles.

I second the Chicken Soup books. Guideposts magazine is also good.

Does she like poetry? Easy to read poem at a time.

First, I send you hugs. This must be hard for you.

How about some young adult fiction? Thereís a ton out there and Iím sure one of our lovely middle school teachers could give you a list.

Iím retired and have read and handful and love them.
