Reviews - What do customers think about Lists to Live By: The First Collection: For Everything that Really Matters (Lists to Live By)?
What the title implies. Dec 9, 2007
When I saw this in a bookstore, I had to buy it. Then I got it home, looked at it maybe twice, and said, "Why did I need this?"
If you love lists of things, this is an interesting book. Otherwise, I don't see much purpose.
I want to live by these ideals! Oct 9, 2006
I fell in love with this book a few years ago, and gave several of them as gifts. I couldn't believe it when a Christian bookstore had several copies greatly discounted. I bought them all and gave more away. I have four different volumes of this book and they are all wonderful little treasures, full of wisdom and sound advice. My family now has a dinnertime ritual of choosing one list and reading outloud at the table. At first my family was resistant, but now we all enjoy it and look forward to discussion the lists inspire. This book series is great for those with little time to sit and read, because you can choose a short list to read each day, and you will gain something from it. This book, the bible and the Simply in Season cookbook are the three books I could never part with!

A must! Dec 9, 2001
Lists to live by is a must have. Great for any collector or someone looking for a quick inspiration. This book is a keeper for all time. I recommend keeping in the living room for a quick peek now and then. I keep it to remind me there are good things in life and to help me be a better person, religious or not it will enlighten you.
