What's In A Name 6? Up or Down

I've always liked Michael J. Fox, I first saw him in the series "Leo and me" and always liked his smart aleck characters.     This book "Always Looking Up: the adventure of an Incurable Optimist"  is a follow-up of his best selling memoir, Lucky Man, he writes about the personal philosophy that carried him through his darkest hours, and speaks with others who have emerged from difficult periods with optimism.  

He is witty, as always and has a great outlook in life, in spite of his PD.  His optimism is admirable and inspiring.    This book covers his last season of Spin City, the difficult choice he had to make of retiring; his involvement in stem cell research and speaking on behalf of all those who suffer various diseases, especially PD.



Between January 1 and December 31, 2013, read a book in each of the following categories: 

  1. A book with up or down (or equivalent) in the title.  Read - Always Looking Up: The adventure of an Incurable Optimist.
  2. A book with something you'd find in your kitchen in the title.
  3. A book with a party or celebration in the title.
  4. A book with with fire (or equivalent) in the title.  Reading - The Girl Who Played with Fire by Stieg Larsson.
  5. A book with lost of found (or equivalent)  in the title.
