I am so grateful to have received this ARC from NetGalley.   I will be watching for this journal to come out in print so that I can buy a personal copy and repeatedly  linger over the beautiful nature shots with inspirational quotes.   The title comes from the famous Robert Frost poem which ends by saying " and I have miles to go before I sleep"  .  The book starts by reminding the reader that for those of us over 60 many of our happiest years are still ahead if we open ourselves to the idea.  Every other page is a beautiful photo with an inspirational quote.  The next page is a lined blank page for collecting one's own thoughts.  The quotes are by such famous people as Winston Churchill, Maya Angelo, Rumi, Nelson Mandela, Gandhi, Joel Osteen, Jimmy Carter, Eleanor Roosevelt, and some quotes by unknown speakers.   
Some of my favorite quotes are: Hurt people. hurt people., Remain teachable, Don't try to fix things with the same brain that broke them and I didn't come this far just to come this far.   

   I would recommend this journal to others at the stage of their life in which they are ready to take a minute and reflect on the beauty in it and go forth for adventure.

This is  an illustrated journal and not a typical book.  There are alternating pages of illustrations with quotes about life and aging and lined journal paper.  This might be a good gift book for someone retiring from full time employment or hitting a milestone birthday such as 40, 50 or 60.
I received a complementary review copy from the publisher via NetGalley in exchange for an honest review.

Thank you for sending me an ARC copy of this book! 

It was not quite what I was expecting and honestly I was hoping for a little more. I thought there would be more back story to the author and to maybe why she was putting together this book. I was also thinking there would be more to the quotes (and to who said the quotes) and to the photographs (and who took them or if they were found online?) 

This seems like a great book and goal for the author as a personal accomplishment-- but for it to be pushed out to the masses I would encourage more substance, authenticity, and relatability to the author, with the book. Thank you again for sending this my way.

I was unable to download this early reads e-book, as it is not Kindle friendly at this point.
I would love to read, and review when it becomes available for the Kindle format.
Thank you.
