To celebrate 90 years of publishing "reads of lasting interest," Reader's Digest offers this editors' selection of our best stories since our founding in 1922. Chock-full of essays and true tales by some of America's most famous authors and thought leaders, these great reads inspire and uplift, open the door to new possibilities and connect us emotionally. In this volume, readers will be inspired by stories like these:
    • Find out how a mysterious gift forever changed author James Michener's life in The Christmas Present.
    • Experience a truly powerful life-changing moment in Christopher Reeve's Decision.
    • Let actor George Burns make you feel like you're dancing on air inShall We Dance?
    • Find encouragement and hope in Dwight Eisenhower's essay: An Open Letter to America's Students.
    • Go looking for true peace and happiness as Barbara Walters takes you In Search of Heaven.
    • Get ready to see the whole world anew as Helen Keller imagines what it'd be like to only have Three Days to See.
    • Marvel at the healing power of laughter in Billy Crystal's amazing true story: My Father and Me. 

    I love a book that has many different stories I can read within that book. It means for one, I can read a short story while I'm waiting at the doctors, waiting on the kids school bus or just about anywhere. I also love stories that move me. And if you can do both within a short amount of time and pages it's even better. Reader's Digest Treasury of Joy and Inspiration brought just that to me, lots of Joy and got me inspired while reading the many different stories the book has to offer. 

    It took me all of two days to read these wonderful stories. There were some stories that made me laugh and some that brought tears to my eyes. One of my favorite ones had to be, "A Love Like No Other," by Skip Hollandsworth. So many emotions were felt while reading that story. This is definitely a book that should be read by all. The stories in this book will touch and move you in some way. Definitely a great read!

    Disclosure: All opinions are my own. I received Reader's Digest: Treasury of Joy and Inspiration at no cost for the purpose of this review. No other compensation was received.
