About The Book

More than two dozen timeless favorites from the Reader’s Digest archives.

From everyday heroes to larger-than-life characters, small moments to historic events, the unforgettable stories in Reader's Digest come alive as never before in this keepsake book. Our editors have combed the archives for the narratives—sometimes funny, often poignant, always inspirational—that still strike deep chords today, such as:

  • The miracle of the old letter that led to a couple being reunited after nearly 60 years apart
  • The heroic actions of a North Carolina woman and her Shepherd, Gandalf, who found a lost Boy Scout in the woods during their first search-and-rescue job
  • The tragic account of the Oklahoma City bombing
  • The hilarious reality of a husband and wife who leave the city for farm life and find it’s not quite what they dreamed
  • The sweet story of the grandfather who helped his grandson “grow” the biggest watermelon                                                                                                                                                                           
    In addition, the book includes bonus material never published in the magazine plus stunning photographs, laugh-out-loud jokes and cartoons, and true stories from readers like you.
