There have been over 200 titles. Many of the books are directed at specific groups of people, such as Chicken Soup for the Mother’s Soul, Chicken Soup for the Preteen Soul, Chicken Soup for the Prisoner’s Soul, Chicken Soup for the Soul: Tough Times, Tough People, Chicken Soup for the Grandparent’s Soul, Chicken Soup for the Soul: Teens Talk Relationships, and Chicken Soup for the Soul: Thanks Dad.
I love the Chicken Soup stories. We have used some quotes or short items from their books in our “Point of Light Odd Friday” newsletter and would use their stories except for them being copyright protected. If you don’t think you have time to read any of the books then take time to read their daily free newsletter which gives you one story from one of their books.
Many of the Chicken Soup stories circulate on the internet in generic form. While it is good that the stories are being read and passed on it is also sad that acknowledgement or credit is not being given to the real people of the stories.
But then perhaps that is the least important aspect of the story.
