i just read "tuesday's with morrie" this weekend even though it's been around for like 5 years. i didn't read it when it first came out because i was kinda turned off by the fact that they made a hallmark hall of fame movie about it starring hank azaria (i think hank should just stick with "the simpson's".)
so i have to say that i totally-otally bawled my head off at the end and i found the book to be warm and funny and simple and i really loved it. so, if you can set aside the cheesiness for second, i think you should read it if you haven't. so there.
