These Chicken Soup books have all kinds of stories in them about lessons in life. The reason I have become so interested in these books is because of my 8th grade teacher. Everyday my teacher would start class by reading a story from one of his books. I had always had a couple of the books laying around the house from my older sisters, so I began to read them at night when I couldn't sleep. I also bought my sister a Chicken Soup for the Sister Soul, and although she never read it, I did.
I think it is hard to read anything, I think that if you are really interested in a book, then you will have no problem reading. Although, I think that it is hard for a book to interest me so I give Chicken Soup a lot of credit. The stories are true and are problem that people like you and I have faced. It keeps me attached to the book because there are so many different types of stories. I don't get burned out on one story the whole book, there are many small stories.
I advise everyone to try to read these books, I think you will enjoy them. They have stories to accommodate any ones hobbies or life.
