Overview

Erin McHugh had spent the better part of her adult life doing community work, but in more recent years, the minutiae of life and working as a bookseller kept her busy and away from those higher impulses. Then one day she learned a distant relative was actually going to be canonized. Was this a sign? What followed next was McHugh's sincere urge to recapture a sense of charity, and so she set out on her birthday to do one good deed every day for an entire year. Maybe she wouldn't be saving orphans from burning buildings, but she wanted to take one small, daily detour and make someone else's life just a little bit better. One Good Deed is the inspiring, smart, and frequently funny chronicle of that year, in which each page represents a day in McHugh's journey to reclaim the better part of herself, inspiring readers to do the same.

    I loved reading this book. I read it from cover to cover, making notes about some of the things that I had already incorporated into my life and taking notes about other things I could add.  Simple things that you know but don't usually think about.  This book had some exmples that I try to instill in my very kind 19 yr old daughters.  I will be buying them , as well as a few others on my list copies of this book for Christmas.

    Thought it would be a bit more creative

    Read very similar books/ideas before...nothing new or creative, IMO...

    A good book, not great, but good. It took me a while to get through it and honestly, I questioned some of the "good deeds". But it does make you more aware of others around you and that is worth a lot!

    I ordered 10 copies of this for friends for Christmas. It is funny and inspiring, and can be read fast or slow. One takeaway is that - if you want to do a good deed every day - you have to be on the lookout for an opportunity. You'll be surprised. Possible good deeds just don't jump in front of you: you have to actively look.

    Better than I expected!

    I wasn't sure what this was going to be, but the preview sounded interesting and, frankly, it was a free NOOK book. I found that I couldn't put it down because everything in it is just so relatable. I've also found that I'm paying more attention to things, too: on the way home from work the other day, I saw an elderly woman raking her lawn and it looked like she could have used some help. I'll be honest and say that I didn't pull over and offer, but I think recognizing that there are other people in the world is just as important, too. Just a little while ago, I sent two separate emails to former teachers and mentors. I haven't heats from either of them in a few months so I just told them I wanted to say hello and hoped the school year was going well. I've been looking for volunteer opportunities anyway, but I'm going to check out a couple that Erin mentions in the book. I can't really even put it into words, but this was so much more than I thought it would be - thank you!
