After her four kids were nearly grown and she was about to turn 50, Phoebe Snetsinger was told she had less than a year to live. Snetsinger, a St. Louis housewife and avid backyard birder, decided to spend that year traveling the world in search of birds. As it turned out, her doctors were wrong, but Phoebe's passion had been ignited and she spent the next eighteen years crisscrossing the globe recklessly staking out her quarry. En route she contracted malaria in Zambia, nearly fell to her death in Zaire, and was kidnapped and gang raped on the outskirts of Port Moresby. Yet none of this curbed her enthusiasm. By the time she died in a bus accident while birding in Madagascar in 1999, Phoebe was world renowned and had seen more species-8,500 of the roughly 10,000-than anyone in history. A fascinating portrait of a hobbiest whose obsession contributed to both her success and her demise, Life List brings Phoebe Snetsinger and the wild world of amatuer ornithology to vivid life.

INTERNATIONAL BESTSELLER In this utterly charming debut—perfect for fans of Cecelia Ahern’s P.S., I Love You and Allison Winn Scotch’s Time of My Life—one woman sets out to complete her old list of childhood goals, and finds that her lifelong dreams lead her down a path she never expects. 1. Go to Paris 2. Have a baby, maybe two 3. Fall in love Brett Bohlinger seems to have it all: a plum job, a spacious loft, an irresistibly handsome boyfriend. All in all, a charmed life. That is, until her beloved mother passes away, leaving behind a will with one big stipulation: In order to receive her inheritance, Brett must first complete the life list of goals she’d written when she was a naïve girl of fourteen. Grief-stricken, Brett can barely make sense of her mother’s decision—her childhood dreams don’t resemble her ambitions at age thirty-four in the slightest. Some seem impossible. How can she possibly have a relationship with a father who died seven years ago? Other goals (Be an awesome teacher!) would require her to reinvent her entire future. As Brett reluctantly embarks on a perplexing journey in search of her adolescent dreams, one thing becomes clear. Sometimes life’s sweetest gifts can be found in the most unexpected places.

An entire industry of popular books, films, and social-networking websites has blossomed around the phenomenon of the life list—the process of recording your aims and goals. There are a variety of very good reasons why people have developed such a passion for creating these lists: they're results-oriented, quantifiable, and upbeat, a tangible sign of hope for the future. Plus, for the anxious and time-challenged (and who isn't?) they help us boil down the essentials of our search for meaning and happiness into its simple, fundamental elements. Now, My Life List makes it even easier to join in the self-improvement movement. It's the ultimate organizer, a beautiful keepsake, fill-in journal where you can list your goals—all the things you want to do and be. A few pages of motivational and instructive introductory remarks encourage you to begin the odyssey toward fulfillment and happiness; then the rest of the pages are blank, awaiting your own words, thoughts, hopes, and dreams. Every time you accomplish one of your goals on your list, just check it off…and experience a wonderful feeling of joy at a job well-done. Inspiring quotes are sprinkled throughout the journal to keep you motivated and on task. It's the perfect gift…for friends, family, and oneself.
