    1. I got this book as a gift for my 40th birthday and ever since I have been opening it once a year and going through this list of almost impossible tasks that people might think of accomplishing and I check off what I have done. For instance. visitng a medina in FEZ (been there/ done that). shop at the 24 hour LL Bean in Freeport Maine at 3:00 AM (check) Take the tram up the Saint Louis Gateway Arch ( but of course!) watch the sun set over Machu Picchu (is there any where else to watch it?) train [...]


    2. I really love this little book! When I went through it the first time, I checked off -in red ink- the things I had accomplished already in life. Then I took little sticky flags and marked pages of things I hoped to do. A few years later, when I picked it up and focused on the numerous colored flag pages, I found that I had accomplished many of those too! Somehow I just felt so satisfied that my wishes came true! I marked further ones and we'll see what happens!! I expect they'll happen!


    3. A very nice list, I found myself highlighting a lot in. This booklet is full of wishes we once had, we never had or never even dreamt of having. While I had to admit that winning a nobel prize would be rather improbable, I found many many things I knew I wanted to accomplish sooner or later.These can be smaller things, but also bigger achievements I might have to get out of comfort zone for, travels or simple recipes. In anyway this book is a reminder to us all, to never stop wishing. To always [...]


    4. cute little things you can do to enhance your lives and the opporunity to add your own ideas. some are funny, silly and inspiring.



    5. I return to this book often for inspiration on things and places and ideas on what I want to try in my life. Love it.


    6. one of those i dip into every few years. hilarious to see what i used to wish & suddenly decide i wish - & what wishes i accidentally achieve without remembering i'd highlighted or written it into the book


    7. Just recently unearthed my copy of the Wish List (purchased in 1999), and went through it again, knowing I had at least a few more things I could check off. Still a fun little book, but definitely now dated - so many references to doing things on the Internet that are just second nature today. Which I guess is a pretty cool thing too. And I had to grin at the item about learning to program a VCR. Also got to review some of my own wishes that I added to the book's blank lines. Nice to see I have [...]


    8. I selected this book because my friends and I do a list of 101 goals in 1001 days and I thought this would give me some ideas for the next round. I got some ideas, I got to feel pride about the things that I have accomplished, and I was reminded that realistic goals (learn to use chopsticks) are better than pie-in-the-sky drams (having dinner with Barbra Streisand).I think I will pass it on to my friends to use.


    9. I first found this book in college about 12 yrs ago. It's basically a huge list of things to do & it inspired a book I later made for myself that I call my "Lifelong To Do List". Some of the things in this Wish List book were things I know I would never do or even want to, so I made my own personalized list. :) Great book though.


    10. I've often carried this little book with me on tour - gives me new ideas of things "to do". And I had to buy when on the very first page I could check off "Rehearse a Chekhov play with Vanessa Redgrave" and years later realized I could check off "Kick with the Rockettes". Hee.


    11. This book has opened multiple distant ions for myself and my best friend. We look through it and think something that relates to the topic and go out and do it!! On make it into a bucket list.


    12. My daugther gave me this book. She wants me to stay active . I must say it gives me lots of good ideas to add to my bucket list. Good book to start off the new years book list !




    13. Summer got this book and has started a Wish List frenzy. Our family loves it and we all have one to check things off in.


    14. I have had this book for 15 years & I go through ever few months and see what I've done and how many more things I can do in this portable bucket list!



    15. i read and re-read then read it again. i keep it by my bed and pick it up every six months or so. in doing so it reminds me to live and that i have lived.


    16. Another book from my past and I find I can mark off a lot of completed wishes. Then there are some that once were possible but are now impossible like - looking good in a mini skirt.




    17. dated and a bit repetitive in ideas, but served its purpose which was to prompt creating bucket list. not a bad starting point.


    18. My blog was inspired by it. If you know me long enough, there is no way to NOT hear about this book 'nough said. :) :)
