10 days without by Daniel Day Book Review (Blogging for Books)

I read Ten Days Without: Daring Adventures in Discomfort That Will Change Your World and You, in exchange for honest review from Blogging for Books. I received a paperback version of the book. The book was written by Daniel Ryan Day.

I wanted to review the book because the description sounded Amazon. Day went 10 days without a particular item to raise money for different organizations. For 10 days, he went without shoes. For another 10 days, he went without speaking. 10 days without a coat, without furniture, without legs.

The book made me think about what could I give up for 10 days. I can't give up my phone, even though I rarely make calls because I have kids. Can't give up parts of social media because I am a blogger and student. Can't give up internet because I am a student.

I can go 10 days without sweets. without snacks. without a coat. without going out to eat or ordering delivery.  without sex (since I been celibate for over 3 years). maybe I can try to go 10 days without arguing or fussing or getting angry at my kids.

I think the book teaches people about gratitude. People are suffering everyday and would be grateful for the simple things, such as a coat or a pair of shoes. Day used going without to help others in need.

The book was a great read. Definitely adding this to my re-read pile.
