Carried Away gets high marks!
A blogger named Bob surprised us with this nice review of Carried Away :
Carried Away! book review
I have written numerous blog posts about the joys of letter writing and just sending and receiving mail. It’s a simple pleasure I inherited from my dad. Late last year one of my musings got national attention as a guest post on the USPS website. I was expressing gratitude to my letter carrier and encouraging others to tell their story, or at least tell their letter carrier they are appreciated.

From the book's introduction:
"Ask any retired letter carrier what he/she misses most about the job and invariably you’ll hear, “I miss the people ... my customers.”
I’m not sure the public realizes how much a role it plays in our daily experience as letter carriers. The simple, polite inquiry, “How’re you doing?” the weather-related comments, the laughs and stories become part of our whole experience. And, I suspect, we become part of theirs for the years we pass through their neighborhoods each day."
