I am really excited about this book! I have read all of the reviews and the one thing that has me wanting to read it is the fact everyone (in a good way) comparing it to Forrest Gump. I love F. G. so much that I have kept my eye out for something like it and have never found anything (which isn't unsuspected, as it is unique).

Thanks for the reviews on this one! Much appreciated!

Thanks for all the insightful comments. I will definitely find the time to read this book since it sounds so good. I do like to make up my own mind but it helps to know a bit about the book before reading it.

I still have this on my TBR list. Everything I hear about it is good.

I started this book and didn't like it much so I didn't get very far into it. Then again, I was super distracted with school when I tried to read it. After reading all of these reviews, I'll definitely try it again.

I have to admit, the title of this particular book was a bit strange, so I was hesitant reading this book. I am so glad that I ending up reading it! AMAZING BOOK!

I actually didn't like it very much. It just wasn't my type of book I guess
So many books to read, so little time..

The title of a book, I'm Learning, can determine whether a book is picked up at all. I'm learning this each and everyday. Only a few minutes is reserved, for a potential buyer to pick up a book. Something has to jump out at the reader to make him stop and say, 'Hey I wanna read this'. I really like the title of the book and know that it will do well!
