I just got done reading Still Alice  by Lisa Genova.  This book will stay in my mind for very long time!  It is a book about a woman with early onset Alzheimer's disease.  The story is told strictly from her point of view from the time that she realizes she might have a problem through the progression of the disease.  It is very sad and eye opening.  If you know anyone with Alzheimer's or even if you don't you should read this book.

Excellent, excellent book.  I read it on the recommendation of a friend and in turn recommended it to my book club.  We all agreed that it was a book well worth reading.
