[ one of the things I loved about homeschooling my kids, getting up at 6 am, fixing breakfast in bed for me & the kids & reading from 6:30-8:30 5 days a week, without fail, then starting our school day, then reading for fun in the afternoon (or listening to books on cd). Lots of experiential activities around lots of reading. First we learn to read, then we read to learn . . . everyday should be like this . . . ]
I've enjoyed other books by Coelho a lot more, and when I finally got around to reading this I couldn't really see what all the fuss was about. Sure it's an easy read with some nice, if slightly sickening, morals, but life changing? It was borderline self help.
