NotQuiteWhatIWasPlanningbook_coverThe Memoir is quickly becoming the trendy term for autobiography.  Imagine if you had to sum up your life, in just six words.  Sound impossible?  

The book Not Quite What I Was Planning: Six Word Memoirs from Writers Famous and Obscure does just that.  Smith Magazine has compiled hundreds of six word sentences to create a New York Times Bestseller.  It is incredible how powerful just six words can be when you have to sit down and decide which six words get to represent you.  The book offers a laugh, causes you to think, and is intriguing from first page to last.
