I have just finished IF I LIVE TO BE 100. Lent to me by my father, who just celebrated his 90th birthday, it is a quick and enjoyable read. Originally a radio show on NPR, the book was published in 2004. The stories are, for the most part, delightful and fascinating. A warm look at how people shape their lives and view their history, how they continue to live engaged and thoughtful lives. Knowing my father had read it before me gave it a depth, an echo, that made it more profound.
