Review: Chicken Soup for the Single's Soul (Chicken Soup for the Soul (Paperback Health Communications))

User Review  - Meg - Goodreads

I bought this when I was single, and didn't get around to it until the past week. Even though I am now married, I still enjoyed it. I am passing it on to my single friends, and maybe to some of my widowed friends. Read full review
