Rated 5.00/5 based on 1 reviews
In 2007, freelance journalist Jen A. Miller got dumped, lost her grandfather, wrote a book and bought a house - all in a four month span. She couldn't run, she couldn't write, and spent most of her time lying on her office floor.

To break herself out of her depression, she decided to read 52 books in 52 weeks, and write about them all - and that series is now Book a Week with Jen. More

Review by: Chris Smith on Nov. 27, 2011 :
I have been following Ms. Miller via her blog and Twitter for quite some time. I have both editions of her book, Explorer's Guide The Jersey Shore: Atlantic City to Cape May: A Great Destination (Second Edition) (Explorer's Great Destinations) (A wonderful read even if you're not planning on going to the Jersey Shore...which you should) and was eager to read her latest collection of essays.

What some people might see as a collection of reviews I see as potential life changers. Like the 20-something version of the author, I am currently trudging through what could best be described as the absolute worst year of my existence. Reading these essays and knowing what she was going through at the time rekindled a lot of thoughts and goals that I had intentionally forgotten about. On top of all that, I am now reading Heirloom: Notes from an Accidental Tomato Farmer thanks to her.

I could fill pages about what Book a Week with Jen: 1 Year, 52 Books and a Year of Starting a New Chapter has unlocked for me, but I'll keep it simple and tell you to just read it and enjoy it.
