Crazy love

Crazy love notes

These are not cliff notes just stuff that stood out to me. It is a amazing book and really worth reading I really appreciate that the author didn’t put any fluff in there so it is short and to a powerful point. I bought the audio book on iTunes for $5.95 for that price I couldn’t pass it up it is even cheaper then the paper back book on amazon. What is so nice about this audio book is that all the segments are about 30 min long so great for morning commutes. If you have a iphone, ipod touch you can listen to it and take notes at the same time which is how I made all these notes. If you have any other smart phone or pc you can buy the audio book at you don’t get as big a price break as you do in iTunes at $7.49 at the time of this post but still totally worth it. My notes are divided by chapter.
