Well yesterday at the thrift store I fell on a book that seem to be like a good book to read. So yes I started to read it . It is a memoir book if you can call it this way. The title is ''They left Us Everything ''. Written by Plum Johnson. So the book was only $2.99 so I thought not bad. I don't know if some of you did read it. But the book is about the family home after the parents death. I know the subject is not on the upbeat, but it did and strike home to me, because I did lost my parents and they did sell the house with all the family's memory with in it, that is the way it feels like when you sell your parent s place house. Everything finally end well. Photo from mom

Never really been a fan of memoirs, but it is true that thrift stores can be a source of good books.

@pgiblett I usually don't get attracted to those things either but its O.K. The usual books I buy for myself are about Holistic health and herbs etc......

It is a strange feeling when the family home is sold and the parents are gone. I'm glad the book struck a good cord with you.

Yes, but usually when the kids don't to keep the house, you end up selling.

It's always something when one chapter of our lives closes and another one opens.
